You misread my project goals. My Colonial USA Deutsch project is open to
descendants of german speaking immigrants who came to the colonies
pre-Rev War. There were German speaking Swiss and German speaking French
Huguenots. Read the project description and goals again.
As to the other German project, I encourage Ed Martin to proceed with
it. He can take in Germans from everywhere and everytime period. You
should address any concerns about his project to him.
I'm moving forward with my Colonial USA Deutsch project. End of thread.
