Welcome graphic

Some people know exactly who they are, where they came from and can recite the stories of their ancestors, can give voice to all the hopes and dreams of those who went before them. Some families like my own, who were in the United States before the Revolutionary War, left wonderful paper trails. We are the lucky ones and most don't even realize the precious gift that we have been given

Others know very little. This site is an attempt to record what I've learned about our family history. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals of this web site is to help our family stay connected even though we live far apart.
 
The beginning of my quest started about eight or nine years ago about 1996.  I am a member of The Order of the Eastern Star in Mannford, OK.  After a meeting I was enjoying  refreshments with the other members and the conversation was about family names and the locations of their origins.  My friend of several years was sitting across the table from me finishing her cake and ice cream when I said, "My Granny's maiden name was HUFSTEDLER. I wonder where that name came from?"   My friend Juanita's mouth dropped opened.  My Granny and Juanita's Grandma were sisters and we had no knowledge of each other.
 
Well, Lucky me!  My new cousin was heavy into genealogy.  You can just bet she had a lot of questions for me.  Then she gave my e-mail address to another cousin in California and in the mail a few weeks later was my family HUFSTEDLERs  stuffed in a manila envelope.

 

THE GRANDPARENTS HUFSTEDLER

The women in my family have been blessed with long lives and good memories.  When I started shaking this family tree my mother was still alive.  I bombarded her with thousands of questions.  OH---and the stories she could tell! 
 
 I still have two of my mother's sisters, my Aunts Ruby and Bettie. They live at the bottom of the pasture behind my house in the home where I grew up.
