During that visit I looked at German records on microfilm. This was my first time ever looking at German records of any kind.
Since I’ve returned home, I’ve begun processing my finds and in the process have found new records online.
Why I’m having so much fun….
- I love learning new things
- I’m adding a whole new list of surnames to my family
- I’ve taken my family back another two-three generations
- Researching in a new country is exciting
- I’m also learning some of the German language
In the meantime I will continue to mine the German records available on Ancestry and/or Family Search.
New Names Added to Our Family Tree…so far.
- Von Votzing
