This webpage is dedicated to sharing Strickert Family History Information. The focus is on the descendants of Johann & Christina Strickert who immigrated from Weggun, Germany in 1856 to Perth, Ontario, Canada, & then after Christina's death to Scott City, Kansas.
[See "Memories of Johann Strickert: "Strickert Canada Home" page]
In 1856, Johann Friedrich Strickert (born Nov. 1, 1806) began a journey that took him from Weggun, Brandenburg, Prussia to Perth County, Ontario, Canada and eventually to Scott City, Kansas where he died August 11, 1895. Traveling with him were his wife Christina (born Feuerhak), originally from Wichmannsdorf, Germany, & five sons: Carl (age 22) , Johann (20) , Friedrich (17) , Wilhelm (15) , and Christian (12) . A married daughter, Christine Wilhelmina Hoppenrath, stayed behind in Germany for a decade before immigrating to Chicago. Leaving behind economic hardships and overcrowded conditions in Germany, the family found that America was indeed the land of opportunity.
Weggun Church Records
See "Weggun Baptism records" for Strickert Baptisms from 1787 to 1856.
See "Weggun Church Records" for other events prior to emigrating.
A rough estimate would suggest that there are several thousand offspring living in the USA, Canada, and other countries today. Just scroll through the various Family Tree pages (one for each child of Johann and Christina) to see all the names.
We will also include a section "other Strickerts." I would invite all Strickerts to share their family history information. Hopefully, this will be a project always growing and expanding. Come back and visit us often.

My Family History Novel:
Several years ago I wrote a family history on Mary Strickert, my mother's family, in the form of a novel: The Lorelei (Publish America: 2002), available on Amazon.com.
I learned that any printed history, when published is already out of date. The format of a web page will make possible an always expanding history.
