What is your family history? My Grandparents emigrated to this Country in the Mid 1800's. At that time, the immigrants were under the impression that the streets of New York were paved with Gold. They soon learned rather quickly, this wasn't the case, and that getting ahead was NOT an easy road to follow.. It was only through diligence, hard work, and ingenuity that these immigrants became successful
My Grandmother on my Father's side came from Germany, and my Grandfather came from Lithuania which later became part of Poland. He started as a Peddler, and then supplied other peddlers with Merchandise, which they manufactured in their own home, He saved his money and later went into Real Estate, accumulating his own properties.
Most European Immigrants brought their Children into the business, and my family was no different. My Grandfather brought his oldest Son, my Uncle E.A. into the business, and my Uncle multiplied my Grandfathers holdings, becoming extremely wealthy. Later my Uncle brough my Father into the business to manage his properties! He did very well for my Uncle, but later not so well for himself, mainly because he was in love with the Arts, but that is another part of my story!
Please us about your background, so we can learn about each other, for America is made up of people from different Countries throughout the world, and that's what makes our country great, and our lives most interesting!!! Shelby
I have now added a Hegardt database to my web site, ( www.formypast.com (about 1300 Hegardt’s and relatives. ) dating back to the 1600. If you are a Hegardt, or have Hegardt’s in your family past, chances are that you will be able to trace your linage on it. If you are not in it yet, please add yourself so that we can have a complete world wide Hegardt family tree. If you need to you can translate the stories that are on the page with the translator right there on the page.
All the best, Par.
