Calling all Genea-Musings Fans:
It's Saturday Night again -
time for some more Genealogy Fun!!
Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):
1) What was your father's mother's name?
2) What is your father's mother's patrilineal line? That is, her father's father's father's ... back to the most distant male ancestor in that line?
3) Can you identify male sibling(s) of your father's mother, and any living male descendants from those male sibling(s)? If so, you have a candidate to do a Y-DNA test on that patrilineal line. If not, you may have to find male siblings, and their descendants, of the next generation back, or even further.
4) Tell us about it in your own blog post, or in a comment on this post, or in a Facebook or Google Plus post.
His mother was Henrietta(Burbach) Hansen (1888 - 1960) She was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Hermann Burbach and Eva (Schmitz) Burbach. Her patrilineal line is:
1 Herman Burbach (1852 - 1896) married to Eva Schmitz (1858 - 1932)
2 Georg Burbach (1825 - 1897) married to Catherina Caspari (1825 - 1913)
3 Hubertus Burbach (b 1798) married to Catharina Schaf (1798 - 1834)
4 Wilhelm Burbach (1764 - 1819) married to Catherina Gros (1763 - 1800)
5 Johan Jacob Burbach ( 1713 - 1782) married Helena Mueller (1734 - 1775)
Henrietta and her siblings were first generation Americans. She had four brothers: George, Peter, John, and Charles.
George had sons Henry(1912) married and had a son Anthony
and Lawrence( 1917)
Peter had sons Herman (1908-1970) had James(1934) had Randall Charles had Jamie
John (1909-1999), Charles (1912-1958), and Howard (1916-1998)
John was drowned at the age of ten.
Charles married but apparently had no children.
Henrietta's father also had a brother Johan who also came to the United States and he had one son who survived childhood. This is yet another candidate to research is the quest for a YDNA match.
