I, too, am working on this same family as I am related to Ridingers through my paternal grandmother. She was born a Hess but is related to Ridingers.
I would also love to get in contact with other family members in order to verify family information. Since this is my husband's account, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Just be sure to put Ridinger in the subject line so I know what it's about. I delete e-mails from those whom I do not know.
