I have Flaackes from NY & NJ in my family tree. . .I wonder if we could be related? Would you like to share info? Do you have the little red book by Frances Flaacke Donaldson? It's called The Lockman and Flaacke Families of Early New York, published in 1965. All I know about my family comes from that book. I hope there might be a connection to yours.
