    emigration:
    when 20 years old, Laura and 1 older sister were sent from Gollendorf, Silesia
    to fetch back to Germany older sisters--who in turn had been sent to accompany
    to America a brother who had gotteninto trouble in Silesia. All the girls
    decided to stay here! [in America]; Laura married Martin Holznagel a year
    after emigration and settled in the Waukon area of eastern Lincoln Co. WA;

    GOOD: W.Forsythe posted the Childers sisters' compilation because those results
    were the most difficult ancestral linkages I've ever personally experienced
    someone discovering by perseverance. Most of their ancestors in the colonial
    south were so dirt poor that they never owned land; so the family linkages were
    discovered e.g. by stock brand records etc. of what ear notches meant the horse
    was owned by which poor farmer. I (Forsythe) wrote a colonial article in
    National Genealogical Society Quarterly 84 (1996): 182-199, but some of the
    Childers sisters' research is way beyond the family difficulties I ever faced;
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    If y'all want to ask more details about this compilation:
    The best way is to write to the postal mail addresses below,as long as they are
    able to correspond (after all, they did the research!) but you are welcome to
    email the " computerizer" of this database, Mr. Forsythe--and he'll try to
    convey your message to Mrs. Kunz or Mrs. Hanks.;
    -------------------------------------------
    oct 2006 for now Forsythe just copies the general list of documentation sources
    listed in the Childers sisters' family publications (below)
