Gosh, Cindy, all I did was type "Diener" in a google search and it pulled up that meaning.  Some of the others I've just always known what they meant.  I used I have a site that listed meanings of names, but have lost it.  Will go on the hunt and see what I can find.  Another crazy name in my family is Pfundstein (German), literally translated means Poundstone. 

Will do some digging and see what I can find for you.

Nola, De Duytser actually means "the German" That's the Dutch word for "german". So that ancestor may have lived near the border. In Holland, if I'm not mistaken, Diener means waiter/waitress - but I could be wrong, I have heard the phrase" om te bedienen" which means to serve, as in a meal.

Oh, this is so cool!! I came in touch with a new to me cousin in Holland, she is doing the family genealogy for my Dad's side - my Opa (his dad) was married twice (first wife died) and she is related to the child/children of his first wife. And Bill has a Baron way back in the 1300s in his family.

OK, gotta go!! It's getting towards bedtime. Later friends!

ok I'm thinking we should get another thread started with this idea so we can keep it separated from the Swap....I'll start it in the challenges forum.

 

And another smiley that would be appropriate for my quilt blocks...

I'm SO excited!  Just this morning I got an email from a 2nd cousin - she's found our great-great grandmother's parents - Charles White and Isabelle Campbell, from Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland!!!  Now to figure out what quilt blocks would go with that!!!

Today is the last day of the month, so please make sure you have sent your info to either myself or Cindy. I will post the partners tomorrow morning and you have the whole month to spend getting to know each other. I'll send you all individual emails with the information of your partner, along with a little "questionnaire" that you can fill out and send to your partner with some basic questions so we can get the ball rolling.
Again, the purpose of this "swap" is to encourage us to foster closer friendships with one another, and really build a sense of closeness among our members. The majority of participation in this will be communication between ourselves, and at the end of the month, a small gift (no more than 10-15.00 in cost) to one another.  It doesn't have to be sewing or quilting related, I will leave that up to each person to choose.  Since we are all very active here anyway, I don't think this will really be any increase in your time spent here, and I hope that we will all feel like we have someone else in the world we can call a "true" friend, even if you aren't able to get together in person.
I'll be up early in the morning, and will post the partner list before the shop-hop begins.  I'll also start a thread for April sign-ups.
