Schug WR1.GED appears to overlap a previously-imported GEDCOM [31 March 2008]

The pages from this GEDCOM have not yet been generated because they appear to match pages from a GEDCOM you have previously imported to WeRelate.

If you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM and you want to replace that tree with this GEDCOM, you need to delete that tree first so duplicates aren't created when you import this GEDCOM. Go to the Family Tree page, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on the "delete" link next to that tree. Please be aware that any pages in that tree that are being watched by others won't get deleted. Once that tree is deleted you can create a new tree and re-upload this GEDCOM into it. (We're planning to make re-uploading GEDCOM files much simpler later this Fall.)

If you don't think you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM, or if the two GEDCOM's don't overlap that much, leave a message for Dallan or send an email to and we'll go ahead with the import.

Carl Schug [25 June 2008]


There are inconsistent dates for the death of Carl Schug on his page. The personal information lists 2 MAR 1869, the biographical text has "March 8, 1867, at the age of forty years" and the tombstone image shows Mar 3, 1869 (at 43 yrs).--Smccoy 18:09, 25 June 2008 (EDT)

Image license [27 August 2008]

Hi, I am an admin for WeRelate. I will be reviewing image licensing from now on. I noticed you had a question about your images

I have marked them both as a low resolution copy of unique historical photograph. If you disagree, please let me know. I chose the low resolution copy fair use option because I assume that you needed to reduce the size of the image in order to load it onto the website. When the you reduce the size of the image, it automatically reduces the number of pixels and thus the resolution. The copyright usually belongs to the person who took the picture or his studio. So, if you didn't take the picture and don't have written permission from the copyright holder, its safer to just reduce the size of the image.

Generally speaking, if the image is older than 120 years old it is public domain. If the size of the image has been reduced or you are using only a small part of a larger photo, it may be used under the fair use doctrine. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave me a message. Thanks for your help.  :)--sq 21:08, 5 August 2008 (EDT)

As I am going through the list of images needing review I see a number of your family photos. The rule is that the copyright belongs to the artist or her studio. Under the fair use doctrine, we may use a low resolution copy for non-commercial purposes. I am assuming that you needed to reduce them in order to upload them. This has been my experience. So, I have marked them as fair use of low resolution copies. If this is not the case please reduce their size (this reduces the number of pixels and thus the resolution) and re-upload. If you need help, please leave me a message.  :-)--sq 22:43, 27 August 2008 (EDT)

Philip and Mary Schug Lamneck [9 August 2008]


I am a relation to the Lamneck branch of the family as my own progenitor in America, Johan Jacob Lamineck was of Weisweiler according to his marriage in 1728 and relation to Lamneck/Lamineck/Lamenecks of Lauterecken/Weisweiler/Cronenberg etc. I guess that makes me a distant relation to some of the Schugs via Philip and Mary Schug's children as well. My question is do you have any further info on the Lamneck's going backwards? If there is anyone in your tree that is interested, I have lots of info including paternal DNA via Family Tree DNA but I don't know exactly where we connect because though I have good candidates, I cannot prove who Johan Jacob Lamineck's (b abt 1705) father and siblings were in the Lauterecken area. I would love to expand my tree with a definitive connection to the Lamneck/Schug branches. Thank you for your time.

Palatines to Tuscarawas County, Ohio [16 December 2012]


First of all, a Merry Christmas to you too!

Good to hear from you! I'm glad you found my Palatine information useful. I only hope all of what I have posted is factual! Regarding "following my progress", unfortunately this WeRelate site is the only public depository for my Palatine research. I don't have a web page like many others do. However, if you wish to e-mail me directly regarding any issue of mutual interest, my e-mail address is:

I have a number of Tuscarawas County contacts, who I had hoped would join in on this WeRelate site, but so far...... nothing. Only a couple of them have any web postings. The most significant is Sandra McBride on (also on She has a lot of data on those in Huntington Co. (adjacent to Wabash Co.), Indiana who migrated from Tuscarawas County. She is a serious researcher who seems to have done excellent postings.

Yes, I wondered as well why Tuscarawas County, Ohio was chosen by all these Palatines from the same area. It seems the first came about 1834, and then a flood of them came in. Especially to the southwestern townships of the county. There must have been something to motivate so many of them to congregate in this one area.

Regarding Baumholder, some of my Lowers are connected to Grimms from there, but the Grimms I have data about, don't seem to connect to the Grimms that you and others have. However, I know there must be a connection somewhere! Many years ago, I had stopped at a couple of farm houses near the Stone Creek Cemetery, which had Grimm on the mailboxes, but didn't catch anyone at home. I wrote down the addresses, and later wrote letters, but I didn't get any replies.

Have you done any research at the Dennison Library? My understanding is that the Tuscarawas County Courthouse turned over all its old documents to the library, and they are a "gold mine" of information. A couple of my contacts have researched there, but the library was always closed when I was in town.

There is also a national organization: Palatines to America, which has a library in Columbus, Ohio, and I have been there, but didn't find much. I plan on going back. They also have active chapters in a number of states, and a website. Do you know about them?
