I ran across this post tonight and thought I would share it again.
How far back do your Hamburg roots go?
Hamburg Centennial – 1/19/15
For all my followers with Hamburg, Iowa roots, do you know when the Hamburg Centennial was?
Tonight I ran across a nice little memento of the Hamburg Centennial.
My Grandma saved this centennial necktie from the celebration.
Hamburg was founded in 1858 by a man who had immigrated from near Hamburg Germany. The first settlers in the Hamburg area came in the 1840’s and believed that they were settling in Missouri. After a survey was made when Iowa became a state it was found that they lived in Iowa.
My Braman ancestors moved to Hamburg in the 1870’s and were there for the 1880 census. My Beck ancestors moved to the area just south of the state line in the mid 1860’s.
Do you have any early Hamburg ancestors?
