Are You My Cousin?




This family website is much the same as my research into my family and ancestors; new, with much to learn, and uncertain where either my take me. I couldn't have gotten this far this quickly without the help of two individuals, my sister in law, Tammy who provided the genealogical framework, and Travis, our son who has spent many hours setting up and customizing this website, thank you to both.

To date this site contains only my paternal lines; Wendt, Boesel, and Bonow. As time allows I will be adding the Myers, Delaschmutt, Young, and Sendele trees. If you should have any questions about these surnames please feel free to contact me, and I will gladly provide what I have, or bookmark this site and check back often.

I hope you enjoy your visit, there is a audio recording of my grandfather, Frank Wendt singing and also telling of his journey to America, settling in Nebraska, and meeting my paternal grandmother Anna Bonow. All living members, family documents and video are password protected. Please log in if you are a family member, or follow the instructions on Request a authorization, to view historical family documents, some of Dale and Beverly's 8mm films from family gatherings or the oral family history by my father, Keith.

Most Wanted - I am looking for information about these ancestors. Can you help?
