The majority of the
Frielinghaus research is being done by myself along with help from my mother, Ethel
Frielinghaus Geisheimer, her cousin Arthur Frielinghaus. We live in New
Jersey, United States. Research is being done in other countries as well:
Hans-Helmut Frielinghaus - Germany - Frielinghaus
Nils Frielinghaus - Gemany
Derek Frielinghaus - South Africa
FRIELINGHAUS in GERMANY
The surname Frielinghaus means
"free peasant or free farmer". I have obtained, from the Family History Center, over 400 records of Frielinghaus' in Germany. The majority of them come
from Westfalen, with a few from Rheinland. Vorde, Hattingen, Brechten, Sonnborn and Schwelm are
the towns most often mentioned. Other towns that had Frielinghaus families in them were,
Dortmund, Brommern, and Witten. The prevailing religion was Evangelisch, with a few being Catholic.
I have yet to make a connection between the Frielinghaus' in America and the ones in Germany.
