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.

My Dear German Ancestors,

I know you are out there just waiting for me to find you.  I have been remiss in keeping track of you of late, but I am going to fix that.  I am more determined than ever to discover more about you and your lives in Germany.

I look forward to the hours I am going to spend tracking you down!

Relatively Yours,


  1. I'm sure they understand -- you've been buried by a large stack of paperwork (see your last post) for a mighty long time. ;-)

  2. Funny, I was just thinking the same about my husband's German ancestors. Good Luck!
