Die Familien und Einwohner des Kirchspiels Himbergen, Kruskop, Kohlmeyer
Good day to you all on Groundhogs day,.
I think the old groundhog in his burrow may suspect the sunshine is a little bit
misleading and he just might not venture out into our very subzero weather temperatures that we have been having lately.
Just like that groundhog, I know I hesitate to leave the house, so you lucky readers will get to see a post about the family KOHLMEYER and KRUSEKOP / KRUSKOP, who lived in Uelzen, Nahrendorf and Buendorf. The entry is taken from my ever handy book on the church district location of Himbergen, Uelzen. As you loyal readers already know the subjects of this book [or people] often have ties to our Bleckede and Goehrde village regions. I may have already shared the fact that M & M told me we have the name Kohl or Cole and the name Sommer in our tree of family history. Well, he may have not said just exactly how they relate. Or It's too cold for my brain to recall the details today.
It is minus the umlauts, other wise I give it to you the way it appears in his book - [Except for my personal comment phrase, which you may see throughout my post.]

SOMMER, Margarta Elisabeth lvd. 1814 Nahrendorf. [The only child listed is son # 2503 I placed above ][I may have Kruskop placed at Oldendorf somewhere else in this blog.]
I'm getting a little hungry, I think I might take a step out of my burrow, after all. While I'm in my car running around town maybe I'll can spot some brave groundhogs out there getting ready for viewing the Superbowl on Sunday.
