These family names seem to originate in the Eifel region of south west Germany, in the area north of Trier, to Bitburg and Prüm, and west to the border with Luxemburg. Placenames like Niederraden, Daleiden, Grosscampenberg, Outscheid, Sengerich, Sevenig, Dahnen, Leidenborn, Dasburg, Falkenauel, Karlshausen and Machtemes Mühle come up in the records. I have located Machtemes and Machtmes family data in Germany, France, Luxemburg, Canada, the USA and Australia. The purpose of this web page is to allow any descendant to learn more about their ancestry, and to allow family members to contact each other. It is my belief, based on research, that the most frequent occurrence of this surname is now to be found in America. I will post data I have collected, and  I invite any descendants to contact me and share their data - vital statistics, stories, history, images, documents, web links etc. I intend to post data for deceased people only, unless permission is granted. Please contact me with information, comments and suggestions. I look forward to meeting you online.
