My ancestors on my father's side, who were all apparently predominantly German Lutherans, emmigrated to the small town of Hamlin in New York's Monroe County throughout the 19th Century. I have been researching them for close to two years now, and have been able to amass a great deal of information on them, although I am still quite far from where I would like to be with my research. Still, my gains have been impressive enough to satisfy me for the present. :) But, I am always interested to know more. If you have/need/or can get more information on the individuals presented below, please notify me by posting a reply or sending me an e-mail.
I got all of the below information from the Monroe County (NY) Genweb site. (http://home.eznet.net/~halsey/gcff.html) These entries are very abbreviated and do not show all known descendants, only those born in Germany (most in Mecklenburg, some in Prussia and other places.) Please forgive any spelling errors involving place names or personal names, these I did not make, and I would be glad to know the correct spellings. If there's any help you could provide me, I would appreciate it.

Surnames: Rachow, Bresche
I grew up in Hilton New York. My grandfather is Milton Rachow. His parents were William (b. 1899 or 1891)and Emma Bresche. They were married in 1916. William's parents were Frederick and Bertha Rachow who came from Germany as children. William's uncle settled in Hamlin. Milton Rachow's sister, Florence, lived in Hamlin, born 1924 and died 1993. Any connection?

well kimberly, i'm not sure (though there is a possibility) that there is any familial connection between us, but i will try to help you whether there is or not. i got the data following from the Monroe County website (http://home.eznet.net/~halsey/gcff-r.txt). i've isolated two different groups of people with the name spelled Rachow (there are others of Rochow and Rockow and such, and there may or may not be a connection). the first group looks like the one you've intentified yourself with. the second one may also be relevant (Fritz Rachow could be Milton's uncle??), because it's here that there may be an actual connection. Sophia Leverenz might well be connected to my Leverenz tree (this is a possibility i'm still exploring), so we might be more likely to have common ancestry at that point.
also, one more thing. i can't seem to place it, but your e-mail address seems vaguely familiar to me. i swear that i've seen KLapaglia somewhere before, but i just can't place it. might be nothing.

(NOTE: the tabs really don't translate well. you should visit the website listed above yourself, using this model as a basis to work from.)

Dear Kevin Baase,
I hope this e-mail reaches you since this is an older e-mail address. I am researching the surname of Lotzow from the Parchim, Mecklenburg area. Can you tell me where your Wilhelm Johann Christian Lotzow was from?

I was going thru the older messages on the message boards
and came across yours. I too am directly related to the Rachows in Hamlin and Rochester. Albert Martin Rachow was my grandfather, Frederick Rachow and Bertha Harder were my great grand parents. Any info you would like, please feel free to contact me at donalb@localnet.com
