Please send the “rest of the story”–the website I’m on only provides a good introduction.
Sally Skeeters Koch told me about you and your interest in genealogy. I’m into KLOPFENSTEIN for about 15 years and have quite a file developed. Including you!!!
I’m a central Illinois Klopfy and must confess that many of the Ohio Ks are not known, except for having them on the genealogy chart.
Let me hear from you!
