Some like me prefer anonymous to stay humble. I don't want my name to shine! :) but I agree with you. It depends on tone of comment. If comment is mean to hurt then it is used in the wrong way.

Wow you look like on a TV show with an excellent background with a fireplace. It reminds me of fishing TV shows. What a cozy place you live in!

Keep it up.

Hello, this is Ruby, I believe I do have a largest Deaf family and long deaf generation of family on my mother side alone. We are now 5th generation + over 50 deaf inside our relatives on line without added by marriage (my grandmother was first one and now 50 added within 5th genereation). From Michigan to California

Craig Hefner in Kansas apparently have the longest deaf generation back to last 150 years.

The Supplas??? Mine just skip from generation to generation, not consistent.

People would not take you seriously if you do not engage in scholarly research on the largest or longest deaf generation.

I just found this site and am very interested. Although I am not deaf, my mother's parents were, and I have done extensive family research. My mother's father, by the way, was named Herbold. He was one of those nine boys, all of whom were born deaf, that have been mentioned twice in your posts that I have seen. These Herbolds originally came from Rhoden, Germany in the mid-1800s and located in Iowa. The first deafness occurred in my great grandfather, Louis Peter Herbold. All nine of his sons were born deaf. One died in infancy. The boys went on to marry and have children. Some were deaf and some were not. From the research I have done, whether or not the children will be born hearing or deaf is totally predictable. After the third generation, I don't know. I haven't done the research on that. Does anyone know if any such study has been done anywhere?
