Falkenburg Kreis Dramburg / Pommern

Geneology research for the area of Falkenburg Kreis Dramburg / Pommern.

I am trying to research my great grandmother Helene Berta Frieda Schramke goborene Ponce. (Evangelish). She was born June 10th, 1901 in Falkenburg Kreis Dramburg / Pommern. My grandfather always told me she was from Lyon, France - but her marriage and death certificate say otherwise?

Unfortunatly, I haven't had much luck finding out anything about her other then a few things from my grandfather (nothing that helps with geneology research). She doesn't show up in the data base.
This is a picture of my great-grandmother with my aunt Dagmar and mom to the right.

DNA health report

  researching DNA and ancestry results is just one of my many hobbies. Somethimes I think that I may be working in the wrong field. Talking about punit squares, inherited traits, recessive and dominant genes makes me all giddy and excited.

  About one yaer ago I found this website called, it provides health reports based off your DNA results. How exciting, right?

  If you are a hypochondriac this website is not recommended. I think these findings are based off sample study groups.

  How does it work? Well, you will need your raw DNA file from either or 23andme. Promethease will prompt you through the steps that you need to take. After you download your raw DNA file, it will prompt you to pay $5.00 and the link to view your results will be emailed to your designated email that you entered.

What to do when your dog chews on everything!

Do you just get rid of a dog when they destroy everything in site? I don't see that as an option. I believe that when you adopt a puppy or grown dog into your life, you make a promise. You promise to care for that living being tell death does you part.

Shop Remodel

Remodeling the shop!

  Originally we were going to remodel my smaller office, but then my husband and I decided that we need another guest bedroom instead. Our daughter Kathleen is getting married next spring break. We will need room to accomondate our 6 grown kids and there families.

See original plan "here".

  My husband thinks that I am a hoarder. I just have a lot of hobbies! He decided I need more space, so here is the plan:

Isn't it beautiful!

Our shop has sort of become the dump of area for stuff we didn't want to store in the house. We plan on becoming better organized. 
See our before pictures:
Hail damage

Saved big boxes

All of my teaching stuff takes up the right side of the shop

  Step 1: Move all the lawnmovers and gardening stuff outside and into the small shed.
 (It was a chicken coop, but that didn't work out very long)

Step 2: Move my moms stuff to her shed on her property.
(She had me hold on to stuff when she moved)

Step 3: Throw away broken book shelf and big boxes.

It's a mess, wish us luck.
