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!
Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
