    21 feb 1997 Familytree of Richard F. Lamping (uncle of Kenneth), Wisconsin
    17 feb 1997 Familytree of Kenneth Lamping, Wisconsin. Sent 17 jan 1997


    Early 1996 I was in Rotterdam, scanning the CD-ROMS of the LDS-Church (Mormons), I found a lot of Hungarian and Romanian Lampings. Nice to know, but difficult to find more information I thought. Wrong!

    The real search started in september 1996 when I received an Email message from Kenneth Lamping writing me that his grandfather Frans Lamping came from Hungary. I wrote a few letter to genealogical societies in Germany and via a database of FOKO (Research Contacts) I got hold of the name of Hans Wikete and Werner Weissmüler. I made some short phonecalls and wrote them a letter to get more information. Werner Weissmüller sent me a few pages with material. And in my letter to Hans Wikete I ordered the Familybook he composed of the catholic churchtown Großjetscha where most of the Lampings were born. Practically all the Lampings which I found on the LDS CD-roms are found back in their sources.

    Using these sources I found a LAMPING and a LAMBING who are the origin of all the others in the socalled Banat area.

    It is still possible that Henricus LAMBING is a son of Dominicus LAMPING.

    Dominicus married Joanna Fenner and she had at least 10 children from 1745 till 1776, when she was 58 when she got her last child. Incredible. It seems rather strange. But that is what other researchers found and wrote down. Dominicus LAMPING belongs to the first group of emigrants of Großjetscha, as the place was founded in 1767 and his first child Michael Lamping was born there in 1768.

    Researchers and the villages they cover.

    Großjetscha is the place where the first Lampings lived. Descendants met other nice girls and boys in other towns like Sackelhausen, Kleinjetscha, Billed, Orczydorf and Gertianosch.

    Hans wikete, 	Großjetscha
    Johan Gehl	Billed. They are going to create a computer database which covers the era 1762-1950.
                            This will be ready in 1997. A little patience.
                            It is all about money Mr. Gehl told me. They wished to do it for all
                            the places, but there was not money enough. So they said we are going to do
                            it for our place first.

    Are there any descendants left in Hungary?

    I think so. Between roughly 1850 and now there is a gap, which can be closed supposed there are some old descendants still living in Hungary.

    Old information

    For a long time research on this branch was a little to far from my bed.
    But then I got a wonderful message from Kenneth Lamping, Usa at October 2, 1996.

    Kenneth Lamping,, son of Ronald Lamping is probably one their descendants.

    Hi my name is Kenneth Lamping, thanks for your inquiery. I have printed out the how to help page and give it to my father Ronald Lamping. He thinks he can get you the info you need. My grandfather on my fathers side is Frank Lamping and came to the usa from Hungary.
    As soon as he gets the info together I'll send it through.
    chow till then.

    There is a family named LAMBING, The P became a B. Until we have
    found the parents of Frank LAMBING, it will stay a question
    if they belong to the LAMPING family. In the USA I found about 160
    telephone numbers with the LAMBING family name.

    Chuck Moran writes, 22 feb 2001: 
    The arrival date of the family in North Dakota is not correct, since they didn't arrive in the U.S. until 1893. Also, they moved to Portland in 1919, not "in the 1920's", after Anna Maria's death. [The discrepancies are due to information that my cousin gave for the Stark County book. She was trying to remember what her mother, Katie, had told her. Katie was the only one that stayed in North Dakota.]
    There are few male descendants of Franz to carry on the Lambing name, since only two of his sons had sons. However, there are at least three "producing" male Lambings in the line that I know of. Where it will go from there, I don't know.
