There was a cluster emigration from the Husum area of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany to the Wyoming area in Jones County, Iowa, with many of the “transplants” from the village of Hattstedt. I am writing a book about the families who were a part of that. It will include genealogy, description and photos of both areas, maps, emigration information, explanation of the border changes (Denmark & Germany), etc. I prefer a descendant’s gen. data to my research on same as that will save my time and be more accurate and extensive. Please contact me if you are willing to share your data in Family Tree Maker, GEDcom, text, jpg, bmp, hardcopies, etc. — all acceptable. I want as many ancestors of the emigrants as I can get and just two generations of the emigrants’ descendants.
You will receive credit in the book and discover other genealogists with your surnames. I will e-mail a list of genealogical aids in the Wyoming Public Library to anyone who asks. Later I’ll add more to this website about this specialized genealogy which will find more researchers in the U.S. and in Germany.
