Aufderheide Family Genealogy Forum
I am researching the AUFDERHEIDE name in Australia. My ancestor, Magdalena Catherina AUFDERHEIDE (b.1820) came to South Australia from Harpstedt with her husband Thomas Augustus CUTTING who was a Lieutenant in the German Legion, in 1851. They had one daughter born in Harpstedt (Ellena Eliza Christina). For the same period I have come across a Christian AUFDERHEIDE, son of J Friedrich AUFDERHEIDE. I think Christian may be her brother and although I have his and his fathers naturalisation papers etc, can not prove this. If anyone is researching this name in either the Harpstedt region or Australia, I would love to hear from you.
