Jim Ike will present “Finding Your Female Ancestors” at the Computer Club of Oklahoma City genealogy study group at 9 a.m. Saturday at 3000 United Founders Blvd, Suite 201.
Female ancestors can be the hardest to find in genealogy research because in earlier days females could not vote or own property, and their names changed when they married. Various research methods used to locate female ancestors will be discussed during the presentation.
“The Master Genealogist” or “Legacy” genealogy database programs will begin at 11 a.m. For more information, email Jim Ike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Goodman-Grothe reunion set
The Goodman-Grothe family reunion will be Sept. 15 at Red Rock Canyon State Park, south of Hinton.
Charles Henry Grothe, christened Carl Heinrich Wilhelm Grote in Luebbecke, Westfalen, Prussia, on April 20, 1832, immigrated to Pennsylvania with his family. He married Evaline Childers in Lawrence County, Ind., in 1853. Known children include: Charlotte, William, Henry, John, Samuel, Frank, Julia, Charles Henry II and George.
After 1880, the family migrated to Nebraska where Eveline and John died. Remaining family members came to Oklahoma Territory during the land run. William, Samuel and Frank filed for homestead in Kingfisher in June 1889.
Frank and George married sisters, and these unions produced double-cousins with the Grothe name. Two of Frank's daughters married Goodman brothers, thus producing double-cousins in the Goodman-Grothe family.
