In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

Edgar Miller Streit, Martha E., and Ada B. Streit - Research I did in 2005 or 2006

Let me start by telling you how I'm related to these folks. Edgar and Ada Streit are my 1st cousins, 3 times removed.
Like this:
Dellitt Elizabeth Wilson (me)>my mom>her mom Dellitt Elizabeth Jenkins>her mom Ada May Wingerter (1st cousin of Edgar and Ada Streit)>her father David Wingerter (Ada and Edgar's uncle)>his parents John Wingerter and Barbara Dellitt

Edgar and Ada Streit>Catherine D. Wingerter (David's younger sister)>John Wingerter and Barbara Dellit

First cousins because there is just one intervening generation between Edgar and Ada and our common ancestors, John and Barbara Wingerter. 3 times removed because first cousins not removed are the same generation, once removed are the children or parents of your first cousin, and twice removed are the grandchildren or grandparents of your first cousins, and 3 times removed if they are the great grandchildren or great grandparents of your first cousin.

Obviously, I'm only related to Martha through her marriage to Edgar.

Notice that Streit is spelled a few different ways in these sources: Street and Strite besides Streit.
