Thank-you for the info and I didn't realize that I was at the wrong place for finding info on family born in Freisland,just figuring out the different areas.As for the different information I have been finding I think that people are adding the first info they come to to do with who they think is there family.I have been paying more attention to bith and death dates to try and get the right info.So many names the same that birth abd death is closer and of corse who they married.Just started out doing this and am slowly learning.I really appeciate your help.I will go to the sites you have given me.Cheers Mag
