As for my mother-in-law's side, they are German and Austrian, through names such as Ehlers and Leik, also in Iowa and Illinois.
It's quite a dose of new blood for me! I will finish posting the ahnentafels on my family, and right now I am preparing for my British adventures.
Wishing all of you a Happy New Year!
