I work on family history since 1979 investigating my ancestors from the former Eastern Parts of Germany, as well as from Schleswig-Holstein and Denmark, and from Westphalia and Waldeck. Additionally I collect all namesakes "Loefke" (including similar names). My main fields of research are:
1) The investigation of all families from Wiedenbrück - as well as some rural families of the former "Amt Reckenberg" - from the Middle Ages up to ca. 1850. At the moment I concentrate on the 16th and 17th century;
2) the edition of still unpublished sources about Wiedenbrück and the "Amt Reckenberg".
