Welcome! Please come in and visit for a while. Indiana Ties is a place for sharing family history.
These pages carry details of family connections that keep growing as research uncovers more roots. So far, the origins of my ancestors are predominantly Germany, or Prussia, or Baden, or Hessen, and so on, depending on the name of the region during a certain era. Some emigrated from Bavaria, Pomerania, Westphalia and other areas in Europe. But eventually all of their roads led to Indiana. Thus, I have chosen to call this gathering place Indiana Ties.
It's rewarding to discover the where, when and how of family through microfilm, archives, books, cemeteries and databases. But just as rewarding are the messages I receive from walking, talking cousins who find me here on my website and decide to make a living connection. I enjoy so much sharing what I've been able to assemble with all of my cousins. If I can help out with a question about a family member, just ask.
Stay a while and browse Indiana Ties using the links at the top of the page. Take a look at the Family Lines and read my Family Stories. You'll find an ongoing dialogue and special features at the Indiana Ties blog.
Remember, your comments are always welcome! If you have an addition to our family history, send an email using the Contact Me page.
Thanks for stopping by.

A Few Photo Memories:
Here are some Niehaus and Weber family photos from the 2001 - 2012 time frame. Can you name everyone? In case you are wondering, their names are below.
The two photos on the top are from Weber/Kuhn family gatherings:
First, on the left, is a sisters photo from my mom's 85th birthday in 2001 - Rosemary Weber Niehaus. She's seated in the front on the right. Seated next to her is her sister, Gin Weber Niehaus. Standing are sister-in-laws and sisters: Emma Richie Weber, Peg Weber Stull, Dolly Weber Holzer and Ruth Weber.
The next photo on the right is of from the Kuhn/Weber reunion in 2011: Ruth Weber, Janet Weber Jenkins, Nancy Weber Gholson and Kathy Weber Brodhacker. Janet is Ruth's niece, Nancy and Kathy are her daughters.
The second row, left photo is from the 2012 Niehaus reunion: Libbe Hickman and Gib Hickman are flanking their mother, Janie Stull Hickman. On the right at bottom is a brothers/sisters photo: Robert Niehaus, Gert Niehaus Isom, Norris Niehaus and Charlotte Niehaus Baxter are happily gathering for the 2003 Niehaus Reunion. I'm glad to have all of them in my family history!
