With the newest information
concerning a possible link to our Wegert Family in Germany, I may be
delaying the publishing of our book for short period of time.
It won't be too long...I promise. But, the possibility of
finding history of the Wegert Family prior to their emigration to
the USA is too important not to include...think? Anyway...am
working on it!

I am in
the process of gathering the supporting documents I need to complete
my application to the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR).
Frederick Henry Dockstader, my 3rd Great Grandfather, served in the
New York Militia during the war. I have found several other
family members who served in that war, but Frederick's lineage
connection to me is the shortest, and therefore, easiest to
Am in the final stages of my edits for the book. Planning
on a Spring publication. Final cutoff for submissions is
December 31st. We now have over 400 pages of recipes, family
tree branches, stories, and HUNDREDS of family photos.

I am making great progress on my book,
"Wegert Family and
Friends Cookbook and History". Yes...the original plans
for a cookbook has morphed into a combination of recipes and
history. We already have over 185 pages, full of good
food...for the mind and the stomach. I am at a point in the
book creation where I am forwarding chapters to the appropriate
family members for gleaning incorrect information. I expect to
be at a point of publication within the following year. I will
keep you informed.

I posted an updated version of the family tree on the
Ancestry.com site. It has been exactly two years since I

LOTS of revisions and additions since then.

Added over a hundred new images to
the Dockstader branches of the online tree. The photos are

Added a Feedback page for your comments and questions.
Uploaded a revised/updated copy of the family tree to Ancestry.com.
Obtained the book
Family Record of Hiram Dayton and Permelia
The book was compiled by Alta A. and Leland M. Dayton and
published In September, 1961. It is an invaluable source of
genealogical data for my tree research. I have already scanned
all of the photos in the book and am adding them to the tree data
file. The photos will be added to the online tree as I get
them associated with the names the faces belong to.

Discovered the complete name of Wilhelm Wegert (my 2nd Great
Grandfather) was actually Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Wegert.
This information was found in the Brandenburg, Prussia Emigration
Records. We had known he arrived at the in Port of New York,
USA on Nov. 25, 1868 with his Mother, Friedrike Wegert,
and his wife, Karoline (Roehl) on ship N. G. Bark Jenny
out of Bremen, Germany. The passenger list, which we have a
copy of, showed Wilhelm (Carl) had Cabin #1, Karoline had Cabin #2,
and Friedrike had Cabin #3.
