I visited Hegensdorf in July of 1995 to have a look at the village where my Wördehoff ancestors lived. Since then I have discovered other people on the Internet with ancestors from this same tiny village. We decided to gather together our resources about Hegensdorf and make this website. As time goes by we will be adding new things. We also would like to encourage others to build similar websites for other small German villages and towns where your ancestors lived.
