  • Researching our family history is an ongoing labour of love, and we are truly thankful for all of the support we have received from so many, in the way of stories, photographs, dates, names and more. Please let us know if there is anything else you believe should be included, or if we have made any errors. SPECIAL THANKS to the following people who have contributed so much to making this tree what it is: - BETTY DEMSKY (nee Poerschke) of Birmingham, Albama, USA; ALVIN POERSCHKE of North Tonawanda, NY, USA and PETER POERSCHKE and PAGE POERSCHKE (nee Smith)of Birmingham, Alabama,USA who have tolerated our countless phone calls at all hours of the day to provide information about the Poerscke/Kriedemann families who emigrated from Prussia. - JEAN CHRISTIANSEN (nee Upleger) who has also been bombarded with questions and so graciously provided her time and knowledge. - VICKI FLINT (nee Louwsma) of Lake Wales, Florida, USA who has provided countless photographs and information about the Louwsma family who emigrated from the Netherlands. - CARL KALOTA who is no relation but has generously transcribed Poerschke and Kriedemann obituaries for us. - DIANNE HUNDICH (nee McKenzie) of Troy, Michigan, USA, who made me laugh so much when she told me "all her friends are dead people", and has provided information about the Upleger family who emigrated from Mecklenburg-Schwerin. - GRIT HEIDEN of Rostock, Germany (who is related to the Upleger and Poerschke family through Simon Pentzien (b:1660) and Grethe Trede (b:1661), who has generously provided countless church records and photographs from Germany. - Rosemary LITOGOT of Florida, USA who told me that she would love to visit Australia, but the closest she has been was eating kangaroo tail soup in Paris, and has provided invaluable information about the Penzien family from whom she descends. - NANCY ROBINSON of Whidbey Island, Washington, USA who has provided information about the Kriedemann family to which she is indirectly related. - ANITA DAVIES (nee Bowen) who has introduced us to a whole family that we never knew we had. - PATRICK HANSON-LOWE who uncovered a hidden Hanson history and was so generous in allowing us to use his amazingly detailed research. We would also appreciate it if you would sign the Guest Book on this site, as one of the nicest outcomes from this process has been re-newing and making connections with family, near and far. We would love to hear from you. Without your support, stories and photographs, this information would just be words on a page. Thank you, Clair & Sam The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~ Erma Bombeck ~
