German Ancestry

My real name is Frances but I have been called Dolly since I was born, so that is the name I answer to. I was born in 1930 in Evanston, IL. and moved to Tx. in 1977, and time is passing by very fast, so I hope I can find a few of my foreign born ancestors soon.

I have come to the point in my research when I must try and find my ancestors (and my husband's) in Germany. This is not easy for me as I read and speak no German. Most of the people on my mother's side came from Mecklenburg, Schwerin. My grgrandad on my father's side came from Westphallia, Prussia. He married a lady named KELLY so I guess there is a little Irish in me, too. My husband's Paternal side came from Bieniew Lubin, Poland, Russia, Germany. His Maternal side from Wischenen, Kreis, Saamland, East Prussia. I have my tree on Rootsweb at I also have a tree with lots of photos that I have put on another site for all the relatives to share. If any of the names in my tree seem familiar to anyone, let me know and I will direct you there and give you the password.

My paternal GGrandfather was John J. Neuhaus.
