Facebook page for Opening Doors in Brick Walls


I’m thinking of maybe a weekly post to let everyone know:
what I’m working on,
what breakthroughs I’ve made,
which brick walls are holding up and which are crumbling,
genealogy sites and software I use,
collection of books in my genealogy library,
KEYS I’ve found that help me open the doors in my brick walls….
Are there other things that I can include? Look forward to reading your comments!

When I’m not doing genealogy and blogging, I spend time riding my racing bike with my husband through the wonderful Luxembourg countryside.

    1. I understand that Facebook has a certain kind of reputation depending on who you ask. It is nice to be able to promote my blog there. And there are several genealogy groups that I enjoy participating in. Genealogy Bloggers, another group, is helping me learn my way around the blogging world.


      1. I always thought that Linkedin was for professionals. Blogging is new to me and I’d love to have more people following my blog. I know people use Pinterest, Google+, Twitter to promote their blogs. I’ll have to seehow things develop. Thank you for the compliment!


  1. Felix Stambach is my 8th great grandfather. I was excited to see his name in your blog. Any more info you can pass along that ancestry.com doesn’t have? I’ve hit somewhat of a wall with his father Ulrich. I was anxious to see if he did have siblings like you were guessing.

    1. Hello Sharon,

      My Stambach ancestors were my 7th great-grandmother Maria Barbara Stambach d. 1768 and her father Johann Jacob Stambach d. 1725. I located her death record and estimated her date of birth at 1704. The Bas-Rhin Archives database for birth/baptismal records in Kutzenhausen begins in 1714 for the protestant parish so I cannot search there for her birth record.

      I have an extract I found years ago online of Ray B. Groves’ work on the Felix Stambach family. I have not tried to find the connection to my line.

      You will find the book Stumbaugh Tree of Life – Our Roots on Stumbaugh Tree of Life – Our Roots

      I need to get back to checking the online records of the Bas-Rhin Archives for more information on the Stambach family. I’ll be writing a post if I find anything.

      Best wishes,
