Looking through the old faded photographs of my Habben/Ufkes ancestors I couldn't help but wonder who these people were. As I began "Searching" for more information and more photographs I discovered an incredible group of people.
"Seaching - The Habben/Ufkes Families" was not designed to be a historical document, but rather a collection of the stories that have been handed down from one generation to another. Primarily it is a collection of old photographs that I have obtained from cousins.
The photographs have been restored and colorized to bring them new life. Many of the photographs are well over 100 years old.
This series of "Searching" includes the children and grandchildren of two brothers and two sisters - Rolf and Christina (Ufkes) Habben and Habbe and Annebken (Ufkes) Habben. Sixty-three people have been included in this collection.
This is a beautiful book measuring 13x11 and 320 pages of wonderful family photographs. It will be a family treasure for many generations to come and is suitable to be displayed on your coffee table.

A few years ago I aquired a passion for genealogy research. In doing so I wrote my first book called "Sincerely" , a story about my uncle who was killed during WWII. I am in constant search of family history and photographs. In February of 2008 I began a series of books I have named "Searching". These books encompass my various family groups and are primarily collections of old photographs that I have restored and colorized. Each series covers genealogy information and stories that have been passed down from generation to generation.
