My family ancestry is made up of mostly families that came from Schale Germany in 1838 and 1848. They settled in the Elk Grove and Bensenville areas of Cook and DuPage Counties. The family names most common are Landmeier, Harbecke, Schoppe, Garlisch, Mess and Scharringhausen. Being a descendant of these families is a real blessing in my life, in part because they were such good record keepers.
