Olive (Hassell) Rathkamp

The connection between my great grandmother, Olive Hassel and her parents continues to be elusive. I have copies of the 1900 and the 1905 censuses, but I haven't quite made a definitive link between her and Charles Hassel, although I'm 90% sure. I do know that Olive was born in Sweden in 1886 and lived in Michigan. A marriage record between her and my great grandfather William Rathkamp would almost certainly nail it down, but I haven't been able to find it. I'm not sure if they were married in Wisconsin or Michigan. Any help is appreciated.

The Rathkamps of "Hanover"

I've finally, through the help of Herrs Friedhelm Wessels and Ernst-Dieter Sander found the exact locations of my ancestors from Hanover. With the help of Herr Wessels, I've been able to trace much of my family all the way back to the 1500's and 1600's.

Waege, Wege, Wage

My maternal Grandmother's maiden name is Waege. Her family was from Dodge County, WI (Hustisford and Lomira). I'm certain they were German, and originally came from Pommern, but where? I have a copy of the original Hamburg passenger list, but nothing beyond that. What's my next step?

Wesenberg

I have Wesenbergs in my family tree who were originally from Herman, WI and then lived near New Fane, WI which is in Fond du Lac county. I haven't spent a ton of time researching them, but if anybody has any information, I'd appreciate hearing from you.
