This thread has increased a bit of a conundrum I've got lol
I'm descended from Wedekins from Hildesheim in Germany.
My ancestor, Elise Wedekin married a Scottish man.. her brothers and sisters were:
Maria Magdalena Wedekin
Franziska (Wedekin) Meyer
Carl Wilhelm Wedekin
Carl Gustav Wedekin
The above Johann Wedekin's full name is Johann Theodor Friedrich Wilhelm Wedekin... and I wondered if this could have been him:http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/Census/individual_rec...
... which... led me to your thread.. I wonder if there's some link?http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.wedekind/16/mb.ashx
