Welcome! Please come in and visit for a while. Indiana Ties is a place for sharing family history.
The families in these pages are predominantly of German heritage. They emigrated from Bavaria, Baden, Hessen, Pomerania, Westphalia and other areas in Europe. Eventually, they all migrated to Indiana. Thus, I have chosen to call this gathering place Indiana Ties.
I enjoy uncovering the details in archives, books, cemeteries and databases that tell these family histories. But just as rewarding are the messages I receive from living cousins and the chance to learn and share with all of you. 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 link above. Or you can find links to the most recent blog stories in the right column below.
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. Happy family searching!

A Few Photo Memories:
Here are some Niehaus and Weber family photos from the 2001 - 2012 time frame. Read below for the identifications of these nice folks.
The two photos on the top are from Weber/Kuhn family gatherings:
First, on the left, is from 2001, my mom's 85th birthday, 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.
The bottom photo on the left is seven Niehaus cousins in 2003: Norris Niehaus, Charlotte Niehaus Baxter, Janie Stull Hickman, Larry Niehaus, Alberta Stull Hickman, Marie Kirn Dallesandro and Gert Niehaus Isom. The last photo is from the 2012 Niehaus reunion: Libbe Hickman and Gib Hickman are flanking their mother, Janie Stull Hickman.
All the super people above are integral to our heritage!
