I was doing research on members of the Brower, Harbaugh, and Kaiser families in Hillsdale County and I noticed the marriage. Ironically I am less certain of any relationship to Browers in Hillsdale County than to some Harbaughs and Kaisers, but that's a different story.

I am not sure of the relationship or that any exists, but I know that I am somehow related to most Kaisers in Hillsdale County, Michigan. Parents, dates and places of birth and death (I am reasonably certain that they are deceased because they were married in 1916 and must be well over 100 years of age, and of any descendants (whose identity will be protected if living). I am uncertain of Amalie Kaiser is related, as she and Charles could have married in Hillsdale due to some convenience.

It is possible, of course, that Amalie is related to a part of the Kaiser family to which I am not so closely related; the ones to whom I am related include several who married members of a Harbaugh family to which my paternal grandmother was born.

I am not sure of the parentage of Amalie Kaiser.

If I put any information on the web, I will be sure to not include any living persons; I have a cutoff year of 1915 for births, which is stricter thant the mandatory 1930, so that the privacy of living persons is protected. In any event I don't give much data on persons over 91 because if I don't know whether the person is deceased, then it is likely that I don't know much about the person anyway, including former occupation. If my research leads me to persons not related to me, then what the heck? It might be useful to some other amateur genealogist.

There will likely be a Kaiser-Harbaugh family reunion in Branch County, Michigan this summer and I may have some fresh information to provide. Even if it's that these people aren't related it is of possible interest.

Part of genealogical research is finding out what isn't so.

Thanks for the attention.
