the family came from Germany to American (Philadelphia) in 1743. While
doing genealogy I found the family descendents in a small town in Germany.
Through the internet I contacted them. And to our amazement they knew of
the family that went to AMERICA.
An announcement was made at the church, and some kind people looked up the
marriage records from the early 1700's.
The descendents still live in the same house as they did in the 1600's.
It was a worthwhile experience.
