I had to remove my 5 family trees for 2 reasons:
They were very far behind and I have to update them. Second, it appears that many people just copied the information without offering to share their research with me. Some of these lines went to the 1600's and were traced to 2000. I started this in the 1970's from a copy of a document presented to my g-grandparents, by the Nazis (with a seal), that documented 3 generations to prove that they were not Jewish. I often wondered what would have happened if the parish had a fire prior to this and the records were destroyed?
So here are the surnames and areas until I can republish the trees updated and in a safer format.
Some Direct Surnames: Schuessler, Wolff, Weis, Kraus, Burkhardt,Rittger, Nebel, Oberle, Christ, Korb, Stegman, Buettner, Happel, Lang, Wissman, Vormwald, Heun, Sherf, Zoeller, Bickert, Ebert, Eurich and their variants.
In Eichelsbach,Rossbach, Sulzbach, Kleinwallstadt, Aschaffenburg, Obernau, Dornau and surrounding; Bayern, Germany.
