2. [BAVARIAN-ANCESTORS] PFORTZ was it ever part of Bavaria or Alsace-Lorraine? [1]
Hi all, After spending several hours with some maps, I give up! Here is what I have: Church documents from Germany that give the location of birth for my STEPHANY ancestors as a town called PFORTZ. Also, I have church records from the US that give the same name and indicate that it is/was in Bavaria. My cousin told me that the name was changed to MAXIMILIANSAU. According to my modern gazetteer of Germany, this town is just northwest of KARLSRUHE, just WEST of the Rhein river. Using older maps from 17

Pete My 2nd cousin Rose Mary Dietzen of Harrion, WI, married a man named Alois Probst in 1949. His ancestor John Probst, 1808-1885, was born in Brandten, Eastern Bavaria.

Florence Mass transit, if you use the various mass transit systems in Germany and also most of Europe they operate on the honor system. On the various trains and subways that we used in 2005 there is no one checking your ticket when you get on the train ect. You purchase your ticket at a vending machine or ticket counter, then when you get on the train you validate or get your ticket stamped. You don't have to get your ticket stamped or even buy a ticket, there is no one checking when
To jan, Jan you wrote about Platt Deutsche but what caught my eye was Oldenburg. I have one account of family history that says my gg grandfather came from Oldenburg, Germany. However he arrived in New York City on Oct 21, 1853 and at that time there was a Duchy named Oldenburg plus at least one town named Oldenburg. He spoke High German and was Roman Catholic. His name was Jospeh derner, birthdate Jan 8, 1814, married Theresia Merkt from Spaichingen (confirmed birthplace), Germany probably

Katherine, Completely off-topic, my apologies, no offence intended: Without intending to become political, in my opinion, this is one of the basic differences between NAFTA and EU. Just before Christmas 2007, we have included the 2004 accession EU countries in the Schengen system, means scrapping the direct border checks between the old EU countries (minus UK and Ireland) and the 2004 accession countries (e.g. Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, C

How sad that we never thought to ask our ancestors, where they born, immigration, brothers, sisters etc. I am at fault here also. Even he ancestors kept little record of their forbearers. But I guess before the Internet, we knew little of how to search and probably thought we couldn't trace anything.

Hello - My husband and I just spent eighteen days in Germany this past September/October. We rented a car and stayed at hotels that were probably three or four stars. Because we opted to stay in decent hotels, we were very careful with our eating expenses as well as our "touring" expenses. For food, our hotels normally provided us breakfasts ... which were more than adequate. Lunch was usually on the run (either 'fast food' or a cute little cafe). For dinner ... well, many times we would visit the l
