Hi, I am from Florida but married into the Oeding family in Norway. As I understand it the Arnesen family here took the name Oeding from a Danish grandmother during the war, but I have found websites from the original German name in Germany. My daughter is running a riding center in Homosassa, FL while my 2 sons are here in Norway. There is an Oeding family in Miami, and I have a book that tells about other Oedings in the USA. Would be nice to hear from you.
