Welcome

Special thanks go to my grandson Florian, on whose initiative everything was created.

With his suggestions, contacts and photos, Ulli Fobbe also plays a large part in this site. You can read a lot on the fobbe.de website.

Horst Stolp should also be mentioned, who made his notes and the family register of Johann Tusche/Maria Bigge available.

Tobias Bracht also contributed his part to the side. His personal memories and documents are worth reading at ebbof.de.

Last but not least, the information from Franz Josef and Maria Dicke from Obermarsberg should be mentioned, who not only has the Marsberg family tree of Libor Tegethoff in his database and has shown us a line up to Charlemagne, but also created the family tree of the Frese family .

The Warburg genealogical tables, made available online as a pdf download by the Westphalia-Lippe Regional Association, have also been included in this family tree. There are a few nice stories to read about, among other things, the inheritance of Corvey Abbey.

My aunt Thea left me her family tree and my brother Antonius sent me some death certificates and photos, and then there were also Karl-Heinz and Marie-Luise Runte with their contributions.

Through the notes of my uncle Franz I received the necessary information about the ancestors on my mother's side. In the meantime, many church registers have been put online under the Matricula project, so that the data from the FamilySearch database can be seen as confirmed, but some have also been corrected.

There was a connection to the knights "von Rump(f)" and their later ancestral seat, today's "Haus Wenne" near Eslohe. The "nobilis" Caspar Rumpf marries Anna Margaretha de LaPaix from Arnsberg, is probably also named in the will of Anna Elisabeth von Rumpf and von Weichs (heirs of the "Haus Wenne" ) are godparents to his children.

Presumably economic reasons caused the blacksmith Johann Josef Limberg (my great-great-grandfather) and some of his siblings to leave Reiste. After the death of his father (+1848) he went to Grevenstein, Clemens(tailor) and Caspar(carpenter) in the USA and Caspar went on to Australia. Clemens took the name of the farm Roggemann as his family name in the USA. In the Sauerland people were often better known by their house- or farm- name or by an additional name. Christian Limberg from Dorlar married the heiress of the Rogge(mann) farm at (Nieder)Reiste in 1737.
