I got a good headstart on my Lingenfelder/Lingenfelter family
line through a couple of cousins (Keith Lingenfelter and Robert Downs) who spent
years tracing the family roots back to the Rhine valley of Germany. My research
has centered on finding the family history for the ladies who married into the
Lingenfelter line along the way. If you find a link to one of the lines, I'd
love to hear from you.
