So, the Holidays have caused me to fall a bit behind on my blog posts, but today, I am determined to get all caught up! :) So, we'll start with Surname Saturday, which was supposed to be on Saturday, 1/3:
Surname Saturday: Mollering
My 6th Great Grand Uncle- Bernhard Jeckering (b 1719) married Anna Mollering (1725-1809)- both were born and died in Germany. I also have 3 other Mollering's in my family tree as well as 12 other people with the spelling of Moellering.
There is one website I love using when researching Germany Ancestry- Genealogy.net- they have a great database that you can search by the area name or by the surname! I used this website a lot when researching the name Jeckering, so I thought it'd be useful for researching Mollering- There are about 75 or so names listed on the website with this last name: click HERE to see the list.
I searched Mollering family name on Google, MyHeritage.com came up with the name as being 100% Germany- which was expected.
