Early Ancestors in Germany
These Are Early Ancestors In Darmstadt, Leeheim, Arheilgen, Hessen state or province,
I have 10 pages all in German that hasn't been all translated yet.
I'm hoping that if people see these names they will be able to connect
the family branches easier. I may also have errors. I go back to this
from time to time to check it over for mistakes I may have made. And
will do so continuosly until I'm satisfied. This by no means is complete
and must be taken as reference only for now. No genealogy is complete and
totally accurate. So please bare with me!
