I am just beginning to research my husband's father's side of family.. What I have so far is this: (grandfather) Henry Carl Weideman born June 5, 1903 in Plunken, Schleswig, Holstein, Germany, married Florence Ruggbarg, daughter of Emil and Bertha (Mann) Ruggebarg. Henry's parents were Christian Carl and Charlotte (Ossa) Weideman. My husband was told that Henry came to the United States when a small boy (between ages 5-9). Christian's parents were Hinrich and Margaretta (Bendorf) Weideman.
I have never done research overseas, would appreciate any advice or help.
