Ancestors & Descendants of Michael Meyer
Sparked by my father's interest in our Ancestry I started the hobby of Genealogy after retirement in 2004. My father was able to get me in contact with our relative Dolores Meyer-Clover who had been doing research on the Meyer family for 30 plus years. With her help and sharing the information she had accumulated over the years I started to do some research.
My first priority was to find the Meyer family German origins. Dolores told me that her Grandfather(Nicholas Meyer) had told her that they came from Eifel Germany.
I couldn't find any village; town or city in Germany by the name of Eifel. A personal friend (citizen of Germany) told me that Eifel was a region in Germany. With that information I started using Google.de and searched for references to 'Eifel'. I found a web site that I call a bulletin board for people that are researching their ancestors from Eifel. The web site is http://list.genealogy.net/mailman/listinfo/eifel-l. I posted a request and asked if anyone had information on my 2nd Great Grandfather Johann Adam Meyer and Albert Emmerich of Germany responded to my message in January of 2008.
Albert Emmerich responded to my post and did much research locating the German Village of Allscheid. Albert determined that my ancestors emigrated from Allscheid. Albert also was able to find descendants of Michael, Diane M and Cathy. Diane M and Cathy have also shared information from their research of the Meyer Ancestry.
In September of 2008 my wife and I visited Germany where Albert escorted us to Daun and we were able to acquire many documents validating the existence of our Ancestors. Albert has continued researching the ancestors of Allscheid and has become my friend and a friend of the Meyer family.
I hope you will benefit from the information I have presented here. Email me if you are a family member and you would like to add, correct or share information.
