Alsatian Roots & More

My name is Margaret Meyer Simpson and I live in Houston, Texas, home of the wonderful Clayton Library for Genealogical ResearchI grew up in Hondo in Medina County, Texas, and have lived in Indonesia and Russia.  Living in foreign countries was a wonderful experience, but there's no place like Texas and my roots.  My ancestors on my father's side immigrated from Alsace to Medina County in the mid-1800's.  I have many fond memories of my father and grandmother speaking Alsatian, especially when we "went to call" on the older relatives.  This gave birth to my interest in my genealogy, my own as well as the early immigrants to Medina County.  I'm a member of Castro Colonies Heritage AssociationFor additional Medina County information visit TXGenWeb for Medina County.

Check back again soon; I'm continuously updating my information.  I've verified a lot of my information from original church and civil records and from visits to cemeteries and libraries, but I'm still gathering proofs, so there may be a few errors.  I welcome corrections, additions, comments, questions or typos so feel free to e-mail me.
