The genealogical data - who begat whom - for our EMBSHOFF family can be found in GED form at http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=embshoff-frazee
Arthur EMBSHOFF's ancestors were Germans who immigrated to Pennsylvania and Ohio, finally settling in Cincinnati. Frederick George
EMBSHOFF married Melanie SINDLINGER on Aug. 14, 1888, in Cincinnati. Their wedding picture is shown below. The picture below that
(taken about 1902) shows young Arthur on the right, with his parents Melanie SINDLINGER and Frederick EMBSHOFF, and his brothers Fred
and Julian. Fred's memoir contributed greatly to my database.
Arthur EMBSHOFF's younger brother Fred married Anna Margaret BREDEHOFT in 1918. The picture of Fred and Anna, below left, was sent to me by Nanci Rice; Nanci is a granddaughter of Anna's sister, Louise BREDEHOFT, pictured on the right.

Genealogy Mistakes - There are bound to be mistakes. Some are no doubt transcription errors, others are errors in my interpretation
of data, a few are errors in the texts I have used. All are, of course, my responsibility, and I'd be happy to discuss errors. I'm
most concerned with relationship errors. There are many omissions of dates and offspring, some because I didn't find the data, others
because I simply did not pursue all the possible avenues of information. I am always happy to discuss family history with relatives
and interested observers.
Research for these genealogies was done largely at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin Library in
Madison, Wisconsin. Visit them at http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/libraryarchives/
. I would like to thank them and recommend to all
that you support your local historical society with donations.
