Mueller Diefenbach Heritage Pages
Vorfahren & Nachkommen von John Carl Müller und Carl Louis Diefenbach
First Name: 
Last Name: 

Johann Karl Müller. Matthew Kreisle. Carl Louis Diefenbach. These men sought a new life in America, leaving their homes in Germany. I can but imagine what they went through as they sought out a new life in the United States.

My dad accomplished an amazing amount of genealogical research the old-fashioned way: telephone calls and letters and trips to the National Archives to do the research by hand. I'm still amazed at what he accomplished with those "limited" resources.

I hope to document the ancestors who helped shape my history and their descendants to be able to share it with their descendants, no matter where they've drifted across the world. Posts about my work can be found here at my blog. You are invited to join in the exploration. I'm researching the following lines:

Baldinger, Bleike, Bock, Cahal, Durst, Kreisle/Kreussle, Mayer, Mueller, Smith, Tschudi, Wild

Crabtree, Diefenbach, Garrison, Hawthorne, Lubaski, Schmidt, Wallace, Wasson, Weethee, Williams

Fitch, Fulton, Safko, Singleback, Wasson

25 Dec 2018 - I've updated the site to TNG version 12. In the process, I've changed the mapping source from Google Maps to OpenStreetMaps. If you notice anything that's not working properly, please drop me a note via the Contact page.

2 Jan 2018 - Happy New Year! I'm adding written summaries of several people to my blog. One genealogy blogger referred to them as "cousin bait." My hope is that as people search for these names, they'll find the summary on the blog, which will point them here. If one of those "cousin bait" posts found you, welcome! I look forward to hearing from you.

Ich füge schriftliche Zusammenfassungen von mehreren Personen zu meinem Blog hinzu. Ein Genealogie-Blogger bezeichnete sie als "Cousin-Köder". Ich hoffe, dass die Leute, wenn sie nach diesen Namen suchen, die Zusammenfassung im Blog finden, die sie hier zeigen wird. Wenn einer dieser "Cousin Köder" Beiträge dich gefunden hat, willkommen! Ich freue mich darauf, von dir zu hören.

24 Nov 2017 - Updates in progress - I've updated the site from version 9 to version 11 of TNG, which brings some new functionality, including DNA Test displays and Census Transcript displays. I'm also working on tweaking a few things, so bear with me. You can see an example of the Census Transcript at Amelia Schirmer's page.

Updates in Bearbeitung - Ich habe die Site von Version 9 auf Version 11 von TNG aktualisiert, was einige neue Funktionen mitbringt, darunter DNA Test Displays und Census Transcript Displays. Ich arbeite auch daran, ein paar Dinge zu optimieren, also ertrage mich. Auf der Seite von Amelia Schirmer können Sie ein Beispiel für das Zensus-Transkript sehen.

7 Sept 2013 - I'm working on connecting some of my lines here with the Family Tree project at the LDS Family Search website. You'll see a 7-character code on some individuals, listed as the Family Tree ID. Likewise, on that site, I'm listing this site as a source. I think I'm only going to copy specific lines that have me stumped, like Andrew Baldinger; I don't know anything about his parents.

31 Mar 2013 - I have begun translating portions of the site into German. TNG already has excellent foreign language support, but the mods and custom text that I've added need to be translated. I'm using Google Translate, so if you find an obvious error, please let me know.

Ich habe angefangen zu übersetzen, Teile der Seiten ins Deutsche. TNG hat bereits hervorragende Unterstützung von Fremdsprachen, aber die Mods und Custom Text, den ich hinzugefügt haben müssen übersetzt werden. Ich bin mit Google Translate, wenn Sie also einen offensichtlichen Fehler finden, lass es mich wissen.

29 Apr 2012 - This is why genealogy researchers put their data online. Today I received an email from the GGG granddaughter of Philipp H Mueller, my GG uncle. My dad's family had lost contact with Philipp's side decades ago. Wonderful news.

18 Apr 2012 - It's funny what turns up when you're entering new data. I was updating the Fulton line with Charlie Wasson when it struck me that the name was familiar. When I searched the name and saw how many Wassons I had, I tried to figure out what was going on. Turns out my late mother-in-law descended from a Wasson. I have no connection between them yet, but it's certainly an interesting coincidence.
