One of my ancestors was Oliver Brown who served in the Revolutionary War and moved his family here to Concord, Ohio in the early 1800's. Many of his family and descendents were among a group of pioneer families that settled in NE Ohio and started some of the earliest communities in the area. I stumbled upon a line of his that took me back to John Brown I who was born in 1312 in Stamford England.

Most of my ancestors were from Germany and they immigrated to the US in the early 1800's. I don't speak or read German so I have not been able to do further research in archived German records. I welcome any suggestions.

Wondering if there are any other genealogy buffs out there. Any interesting lineages you've discovered in your family?
