Genealogy Gems Podcast (Follow Friday)

Last time I recommended you my first ever listened genealogy podcast from the Genealogy Guys – it was a pleasure to listen and I watched out for more genealogy in my ears :)

Today I would like to recommend you Genealogy Gems Podcast from Lisa Louise Cooke. I already listened to three episodes and it was lot of fun! Lisa has a nice style to talk about genealogy and her laugh bings me a smile of my face …

About Lisa:

Genealogy Gems Podcast

The current issue is no. 79 and is a live podcast from the FamilyHistory Expo in Mesa, AZ.

From Lisa’s Blog:

It was such a treat for us to take The Genealogy Gems Podcast on the road this last weekend to the Family History Expo in Mesa, Arizona.  Recording from my studio is enjoyable and comfy, but can’t compare with doing the show in front of a live audience!  What a blast!  And it’s available for listening now!

Of course I had some terrific guests lined up for Episode 79 who lit up the stage.  (Above Gena Philibert Ortega of Gena’s Genealogy Blog.)  Gena inspired the audience to venture into the world of Genealogy Blogs by explaining what they are, how to find them, and how to subscribe.  She even treated them to a photos posted moments before she took the stage which certainly conveyed the immediacy of blogging.

Then Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers delivered loads of fun and blogger beads…

Olding (Surname Saturday)

Es ist Zeit für Surname Saturday!
Diesmal geht es um Olding – der Name Olding ist mit aktuell 143 Personen ja schon recht ordentlich in meinen Vorfahren vertreten. Bisher habe ich mich, sofern ich an dem Familienzweig gearbeitet habe aber meistens um die eigentlichen Fakten gekümmert und weniger die Herkunft des Namen beachtet.

Ok, ich habe mal das Internet bemüht und etwas spärliche Informationen gefunden:

Name OLDING. Ein Zweiteler aus old = wald und dem Suffix ing. Zu ing ist folgendes zu sagen: es bedeutet so viel “zugehörig zu” und war urspünglich weit verbreitet, wie die Ortsnamen mit der Endung ing beweisen.

Diese Namensgebung mit ing hielt sich noch lange, insbesondere in den Niederlanden, in Westfalen, im Oldenburgischen, im Hannoverschen, Mecklenburg und Pommern. Im Süden schon lange nicht mehr.

Quelle: Ahnenforschung.Net Forum


Der Name Olding kommt insgesamt 79 Mal in 16 Landkreisen vor. Es gibt schätzungsweise 210 Personen mit diesem Nachnamen. Dies liegt unter dem Durchschnitt für alle deutschen Familiennamen. Ungenügend statistische Daten für diesen Namen. Die Ergebnisse sind u. U. nicht von Nutzen. Er liegt damit an 45516. Stelle der häufigsten Namen.

Die meisten Personen mit dem Familiennamen Olding wurden in Landkreis Osnabrück gefunden; der Name kam 44 Mal im Telefonbuch vor.

Die wenigsten leben in Kreisfreie Stadt Duisburg, mit 1 Telefonbucheinträgen.

What was your best Genealogy Moment during 2009?

Randy Seaver asked, Thomas MacEntee answered and now it is my time to tell you what was my best Genealogy Moment during 2009?

I think the best thing in 2009 was the story how I discovered the Olding relatives in Kentucky, USA.
It started when I researched all the Olding from the church-books of Liener, Lindern, Germany – I joined all the pieces together and used further sources to complete the search. The chronicle of Liener showed me that there where three brother who immigrated to the US around 1880 and the years after that …

Would be great to find them! I started a search with some other helpers and found some census records in Covington, Kentucky, USA and made a match. I found these emigrants …
After some additional research I found a findagrave.com site with pictures of headstones from the descendants of the emigrants. I made connection to the owner of this site – and, YES! I found Jack Olding – the cousin 3rd grade of my mother-in-law.
With Jack, I have found a really hugh bunch of Oldings in USA.

A really great adventure :)

All my blog posts about the Olding‘s!
My regards to Jack and the rest of the Olding family in Kentucky!
