Purpose: This web site is devoted to the exchange of information and furtherance of genealogical research into the Weedman family and related lines.


There are three distinct Weedman families in the United States.

The largest group was descended from Christian Weedman, Sr., who immigrated to the United States in 1750.

Another Weedman family has Swedish roots and is descended from one of four brothers who originated in Ockelbo, Sweden. Olaf Weedman was the first of the four to arrive (in 1855) and has the largest number of descendents. Peter Weedman, Jonas Weedman and John Weedman also have descendents here. Many settled near  Galesburg, Illinois.

The third Weedman family is Florida based and has German origins dating from before 1785. Philip Weedman is the progenitor of this line but it has been learned he arrived with a brother, Bernard. Bernard lived in West Virginia and work is being pursued on his line. His family has a number of variant surname spellings.

Other Weedman families are found in Australia, Canada, England, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

A new page has been added to the web site in an effort to determine where Christian Weedman, Senior (aka Christian Widmann) originated. Click on the link below to the ship Anderson passenger list.

Wonder how you fit into the Weedman family? If you will provide some information which would allow us to trace your family back to one of our known lines, we can provide you with lineage and family information. Contact Nick Weedman by clicking on the underlined name and ask for your lineage. I will send a word processing file with your family line to you via e-mail.
