This information gives us the connection of LANGBEHN/BLISSMER, back to the ancestors in Germany, on the Island of Fehmarn in the Baltic Sea. Members of this family are identified in Calumet City, Cook County, Illinois. Other Langbehn names appear in the same area, but as yet have not been connected.

The 4 church parishes on Fehmarn seem to have excellent records, some back to the 1300's. Investigate the 140,000 names at the FEHMARN DATABASE

Langbehn, Blissmer, and Wulf were all associated with St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church In Calumet City, Illinois. The original German church records have been microfilmed, and are available at the South Suburban Genealogical & Historical Society, Hazel Crest, IL. Study their web site at: SSGHS. The films are also available at LDS.

If you have information, or a connection to, any of the Langbehn, Bliesmer (Blissmer), or Wulf (Wolf) families above, your communication would help expand knowledge of our family in Germany (And America). A friendly tip on where to rub the magic Genie Lamp is appreciated too. E-MAIL: BLISSMER
