Blue2000 and Shea - the LDS Church maintains a genealogical website at www.familysearch.org that contains all if not most of the LDS genealogy records as well as a great many from Europe, many d@ting to the 17th century. You may be able to find things relating to your families there. We found DH's maternal ancestors in Germany back to 1666.
I just rechecked. That is the one that has my family so messed up. However, we non of them are LDS, if that makes a difference.
I'm not saying your information is wrong at all; just be cautious.
They have our family being descendants of my great, great, great, great grandfather's fourth wife, when in fact, we are descended from his third.
I should have added, Take their records with a pinch of salt. Or your favorite salt substitute. My ex-MIL, whose hobby is genealogy, says many of their records were just entered wholesale, without regard for accuracy. Their site is useful for European records provided you have an idea what you're looking for - we knew we were looking for records for a particular family, with an unusual surname, in Germany, and another in Denmark, so it worked fairly well for us. That said, however, my work partner's family records were a mess and wildly inaccurate, especially those from the 19th century.
And I have another mystery to add. I wonder who first thought of eating cauliflower? DS asked me this tonight, as I was fixing dinner, which included a cauliflower I was trimming and cutting up. I asked him why he wanted to know. "Because it looks like brains," he said.
