The Tie That Binds

Our Rauch Family
If you are a descendant of Mayme Rauch and Charles Cornelius Aldridge; or a descendant of one of Mayme Rauch's brothers or sisters, these are your ancestors.  The first three generations of data on this page are unproven.  The 9th generation I had proven to be the parents of John Rauch who was born in Bern, Switzerland on 2 March 1871.  The rest of the data  was listed on the LDS online site.   Research has proven the fourth through the ninth generations, I am working to confirm the first through third generations.  Please read the SOURCES: area for each generation very closely.   If you have any information on this family please contact me at the link below.  Please be sure to go the bottom of the page. The  *  before the name indicates the direct line of descent to Our Rauch Family.  Where noted 'this generation is proven' is in reference to the direct line which is indicated by the  *       STB – Said To Be – until proven.
See Hoseli Rauch Album link near bottom of page. The documentation for these lines is in the album. The number following a name indicates the generation, for example  [1].
