In the last blog post “Lester G Hansen – Ludington, Michigan“, I said I would look into how the various trees, that have Hansen’s on them, are connected.
I created a folder to hold the various loose folders that I had to review; Hans I, James, and John Jorgen Heilsen Hansen
and I used this folder to help me look at some of the of the other family trees in the munoz collection.
I looked at the Michael Fialkowski Family tree because it had many people and many names on the tree: 152 people and 49 names on tree which I was able to see in the text file called “0 – a tree created”.
Every tree that I create gets this text file which contains the name of the tree, the owner name, the link to the tree, the number of people on the tree, the number and last names on the tree and the reason with link of why the tree was created. The following is the “0 – a tree created” for Michael Fialkowski’s tree.
Michael Fialkowski – obit – Sep 1928 – Mich
49 names on tree:
Acks, Anderson, Arntz, Barber, Barton, Begin, Benedict, Carter, Clark, Clausen, Claussen, Clawsen Colyer, Fedorchak, Fialkowski, Fuller, Genson, Gienizik, Golinska, Hansen, Hanson Helson, Henricksen, Henrickson, Hilden, Jonatzke, Jorgensen, Katch, King, Larsen, Magoon, Marcellus, McKinnon, Miller, Moore, Morton, Nelson, Olsen, Olson, Olszewski, Peterson, Pykose, Pykosz, Robillard, Sawdy, Skowronski, Van Dan Aynde, Van Loon, Vanloon
created with info: Ludington, Michigan Ludington Daily News – Sep 16, 1928 https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=CJdOAAAAIBAJ&sjid=f0ADAAAAIBAJ&pg=6558%2C3050505
cont. the newspaper item in same issue: https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=CJdOAAAAIBAJ&sjid=f0ADAAAAIBAJ&pg=4304%2
While reviewing the tree to see where the Hansen branch was located I had to create a flow chart to help me find the connection.
Jorgen Nielsen John Hansen
BIRTH ABT 1804 • Denmark
Catherine Birgette Katie Olsen
BIRTH ABT 1827 • Denmark
DEATH MAR 1904 • Victory Township, Mason County, Michigan, USA
Jorgen and Catherine’s son:
James Jens Hansen
Marie C M Jorgensen
James and Marie’s son:
Rasmus P Hansen
Hazel A Marcellus
Rasmus and Hazel’s daughter:
Emma Lucille Hansen
Leonard L A King
Leonard has a brother named David:
David G A King
David and Delia’s daughter:
Aletha May King
Robert W Van Loon Va
1931 – Living
parents of Robert:
Stella Estella Fialkowski
Peter Van Loon Va
parents of Stella:
The above flowchart allowed me to see how the Fialkowski family connected to the Hansen family.
Once I found the connection I thought it would be helpful for others to have a separate tree for the Hansen’s and that points to the Michael Fialkowski tree so I created a tree for Emma Lucille Hansen.
Emma Lucille Hansen – obit – Jun 1987 – Mich – Family Tree
8 people on tree
7 names on tree:
Clark, Claussen, Hansen, Jorgesen, King, Larsen, Mursellus
created using info off of another family tree and her obit of 1987
I did not put all the people on the new tree, that are on Emma’s branch on the Fialkowski tree, but I did put links to each tree so that people can go from one tree to the other and end up directly on the Hansen branch.
I also put a copy of her obit on the new tree, that can be found on the Falkowski tree:
I added her husband and her parents and also her husbands parents to the new tree.
Also a copy of the obit for her husband:
Here is a side note: Sometimes an obit can be overly wordy and contains a lot of information that does not pertain to relatives and so I crop the item and include only pertinent information, which I did for Leonard’s obit above; see cropped obit below.
I do include both obit on the tree so people access either one for their files.
So, getting back to the new Emma tree, it contains the links that will allow other tree owners jump to the Fialkowski if they want to see more of the Hansen family or the King family.
I added the new tree to list of Hansen’s family trees in the munozcollection.
Maybe at some other time I will look at some of these other family trees like the Boyle, Christensen or Prettyman trees.
I hope this post has helped you in some way to work on your genealogy projects.
