  • Notes 
    • From Steve Wiggins Family History
      Dates on Henry and Elizabeth Bolander

      From...
      The Bolander Genealogy; First Compilation (Steve Wiggins - 1979)
      Bolander is a German name and apparently the Bolanders came from the Palatinate, an old German kingdom just on the east side of the Rhine. When and where our Bolanders immigrated in to the US, we are not sure, but undoubtedly they first came to Pennsylvania to settle with many of the other German settlers. We know that Henry and Elizabeth Bolander were born in Pennsylvania, but who their parents were and when their family arrived in the New World, we do not yet know. After many more months or years of research, perhaps the answer can be found.

      This work on the Bolander Family spans 165 years, eight generations, 75 families, and about 300 individuals. It is over 90% complete, and is the result of several hundred hours labor, more than 200 letters including postage, two full reams of paper, 14 months of steady, weekly endeavor, and the cooperation and assistance of dozens of families and individuals. Had it been prepared professionally, the 30 copies extant would be worth well over $100 each. Consequently each original copy is of considerable value, and deserves to be kept in a safe place with birth and marriage records, deeds, wills, and other documents of value to a family. If everyone who received an original were to make several other copies to give to their own children and grandchildren, this family genealogy could not be lost due to fires or by accident, because each branch of the family would have other copies at hand. Furthermore, each copy should become an heirloom, to be passed on from generation to generation so that our origins will not be forgotten.

      I would like to give a special thanks to Cathryn Knuepfer, who started me out, to my great aunt, Mary Dick, who generously supplied me with names, dates, and addresses, Mrs. Janice Myers, who despite her health, corresponded with me at great length to straighten out all teh complexiteis of here father's (Frank Bolander's) family, and, of course, all the many, many family members who took time out to send me information about their own families.

      Sources of information are personal recollections from enquiries, US census records, Hancock Co., Oh probate records of births, deaths, and marriages.
