to the Nieland Family Homepage!
This website was created
for the purpose of discovering and preserving the history
of our branch of the Nieland family. Three Nieland siblings
Anna, Angela and Henry Nieland emigrated from
Westfalen, Germany to America in the 1860s and 1870s. Two
other siblings Gerhard and Gertrude remained
in Germany. Years later, three of Gerhard's sons Henry,
Bernard and Herman also emigrated. We have traced this
Nieland line back to about 1690 and are continuing our search
for records of even earlier ancestors.
Research into the Nieland
family history and genealogy is an ongoing effort. New material
is being added nearly every week so be sure to bookmark this
site and check back to see what's new.
We welcome any and
all additions to the family history information presented
on this website. Please contact
us if you can contribute old photos, stories, memorabilia,
records, clippings, obituaries or any other relevant family
