|About Hans Hofeldt/Martha Clausen Descendants and Ancestors
Hans Hofeldt (1810-1892) and Martha Clausen (1815-1902) lived and raised their family of eight children on the island of Fehmarn in Schleswig-Holstein. Starting in 1868, the now-grown children began coming to the United States. (They came in different years.) Hans and Martha themselves came over in 1877.
There are now hundreds of descendants in the United States. This family tree includes those descendants that I know of. It also includes ancestors of Hans and Martha. Most of the information about their ancestors is from the Fehmarn Genealogy Site. (http://www.fehmarngenealogy.com)
I hope we can continue to add to, correct, and refine this site. Photos and family stories are included to bring it alive.
If you are included in the family tree you are able to correct and add to the information about your immediate family...parents, selves and siblings, and children. You can also upload photos and write family stories.
I have been researching the Hofeldt family since 1981. Other family members have also been at work, and we have built a good documented history. As we include more family stories, the Hofeldt epic should be even more rich and interesting.
If you are a relative and want to see the Hofeldt Tree, please contact me using the link above and include an email address where I can reach you. When you choose a password, you'll be able to see the entire family tree...2600 people and counting.
I also hope to broaden the family tree to include Fehmarn Hofeldts and other relatives.
So, welcome cousins and other relatives!
