This is the ongoing site for information for the Hughes/Boehm Family, its ancestors and its descendants. It is my sincere hope and prayer that family visiting this site might consider sharing information, pictures, and family anecdotes not yet published here. My primary purpose for building this site has always been and will continue to be "restorative and giving" I simply want to bless my family and continue the work started by family members like William Dryden Boehm, Margaret (Smith) Boehm, Clyde Mac Pearce, and Oline Strand. While I've recently stumbled on some fascinating "famous relatives" my focus is still on those strong men and women of faith who made it possible for me to enjoy the quality of life and the freedom I currently have.
All pictures, art, writings attributable to and or inspired by my living family members is used by permission, protected by copyright and not for profit.

As with any "hobby" I am not a professional genealogist and don't even consider myself an amature in the field. I just love my family, the whole sprawling extended messy lot of you. So if you see mistakes, have additional or conflicting information or even spot spelling errors, please do not hesitate to contact me. Correction is one way we all learn. Peace.
Our inheritance is not limited to what is handed down to us genetically from our ancestors. Our inheritance can be what Christ provided for us if we believe the Word and expect it to work.

We are incredibly blessed to announce the wedding of our older son, Fred Boehm to his beautiful wife, Kathryn Elizabeth Durante of Vanderwagon NM. The couple were married on May 6, 2015 in Albuquerque, NM by Fred's long time youth Pastor David Eiffert. Katie is the daughter of Dava (Techlenburg) and Augustus Durante.

As of Mother's Da, 5/11/14 I am currently working on uploading/updating the Boehm Family page here on this site. William Dryden Boehm and Margaret (Smith) Boehm have shared some amazing information on this family and although we haven't been able to find any Boehms prior to the 1850's - what we do have is truly a legacy. I am humbled to share it here. Keep visiting for more details, information and pictures.
A special thank you to my father, Ron Hughes' cousin Wayne Braun for sharing his extensive collection of photos for the Rindahl Strand families. I have uploaded a few new pictures on pages and hope to share more of these pictures as time permits in weeks to come.
I have also been contacted by the Baukol Family and am very excited to speak with them further about an amazing legacy project they have under way on the family homestead farm in South Dakota.
If you would like to see a topical page, spotlight an individual, family group, surname or historical item - please let me know. I am always searching for ideas to build this website. Leave a comment in my guestbook letting me know you were here or contact me at email@example.com
