Please join our Dueber-Hampden Watch Work Facebook
While I have been on a self-imposed hiatus from my blog, Greg Farino from Michigan is researching the Dueber family tree and we hope to get something put together on the family history. Currently, Greg is helping out with the Dueber Hampden FACEBOOK answering questions from fans and new collectors, and all the time adding new information about the Dueber Family and its history.
So if you have a question do feel free to drop over to our FACEBOOK page. Click the link on the top right-hand side of our blog to become a friend.
I know Greg will be happy to help answer your questions.
