I'll get straight to the point, either way, i'm new to this site and still trying to tinker, read and what not about my family's origin.

So, I am Adrienne Ediskey, grand-daughter to Donald Paul Ediskey & Louis Jean Ediskey (Sorell), great-grand daughter of Edward Ediskey.

I've searched for this last name for the past 2 years and came to a brick wall. I then just today, I have found a Katie (Katherine) Ediskey, who was born in about the 1870's and had immigrated from Germany in the 1920's. This record showed that she was alone, stating nothing about being married (or widowed) or having any children or parent's names.

I also found that there are no other Ediskey's living outside of the state of Ohio, which where I, my oldest brother, mother, father, nephew and others now reside.


There is ABSOLUTELY no records that I was able to obtain that are older than 1900's, which is pretty saddening, though makes me proud to know that my name is obviously as rare as it is.

I don't know wether or not this name had changed throughout the decades, nor how it would even been spelled. So I'm desperately reaching out to find long lost relatives and ancestors.

If any of you would be so kind to point me in the right direction with this, I would GREATLY apprecate it. Or at least know of any Ediskey's that are left out in the world from Ohio.

Websites I've searched: Roots, ancestry, Geni, and Geneology.

Thank you for your time community and CHEERS!

~Adrienne Ediskey

Thanks for your help, though yes, I have already searched on those websites as well. sleep.gif I guess I'm going to have to dig till my fingernail fall off lol. wacko.gif

I plan on buying a DNA kit from NationalGraphic.com soon and see if that comes of any help. I will post my happenings with it once I order it, do my testing and get my results. thumbs_up.gif

If there's any others that wish to help me until then, I'd be more than happy to hear from you.

Thank you tongue.gif

As I understand surname tracing using DNA (Paternal side) you'll need to test a close male relative (Preferably your father, his brothers, or your brothers....a male 1st cousin on your paternal side will do in a pinch).

On all the sites you visited did any (or all) have "soundex" searching (the data base is searched for similar sounding names no matter what the spelling). My maternal grandmother's maiden name was Pixler (Pennsylvania Dutch) and the original Swiss/German surname that it was derived from was either spelled Bischel or Buechler (and it was also translated as Bixler in the same area even among siblings). Ediskey could be some immigration clerks best guess at what they heard your ancestor say.

Have you had any luck tracing your family through US Census records to when and where they entered the Country? If yes then the next step would be to try and find a passenger manifest that includes that ancestor and see where they departed from.

Good luck on your search. It can drive you crazy, but each time you make a step forward it'll be worth it. thumbs_up.gif
