I mainly research the families:

Baar, Loechte, Silies, Thier, Wes(se)ling, Wiedkamp, Wittkamp

and similar spelling in the areas around:

Ibbenbueren, Emsdetten, Muenster, Hoerstel, Rheine-Mesum,
Emsbueren and Luedinghausen-Seppenrade,

all situated in the former german counties Westphalia or Hannover
as well as in Richmond,Va

I appreciate any information to these families, I will share all my information with other researchers.

Who I am
I was born in Ibbenbueren, Westphalia in 1937. My job in an aircraft- and aerospace company brought me to Bremen in 1965,
where I live now with my wife Elisabeth.

My retirement and the successful search of family members in the USA led me to my hobby, the genealogy.

The relationship to our US relatives and the ancestors of August Baar, the emigrant can be seen here.

The topic of my research is the project Via Bremen to Everywhere
a cooperation of the MAUS and the Bremen Chamber of Commerce.

Among other things you will find the Bremen Passengerlists
together with pictures and historical data of the emigration ships.
