Lucky me, I have German ancestors on both my maternal and paternal lines! I am currently researching the names SICK and SELL in Schleswig-Holstein, SCHNEIDER in Hessen and KUNDERS (Conard) in North Rhineland - Westphalia. I enjoy doing German research and trying to remember some of the high school German language that I took oh so long ago.

Found : Black Sheep

I recently found a black sheep in my family, courtesy of my niece.  I have found others who appear to be black sheep, but this one is the real deal!

***Beware parents whose children have cell phones.  You might just be turned into a sheep like my sister was!

  1. I found some difficult information too when I went to the German-language church my grandfather attended 100 years ago in Transylvania. They kept a genealogy of the family and commented on several instances that today would be no big deal (out of wedlock pregnancy) but then required "punishment."
