i am busy doing my paternal family tree.."Durrheim". Originally with
"umlaut" over the u. I have not come accross any Duerrheim.
I have managed to trace my family back to Johann Durrheim b 1808 Grimm,
Prussia. He was a carpenter (zimmerman)
married to Christine Onbek b. 1808 Grimmen, Uckermark, Germany.
They left Hamburg Germany on the ship "Willhelmsburg" in mid October 1958.
Arrived East London, South Africa 13 January 1859.
If you are interested in this family I can provide you with much more and
would appreciate any info from Germany.
