The KRIEGERs of the Kraichgau Region of Germany

The Kraichgau is a region between Stuttgart and Heidelberg just west of Heilbronn. The two important locations for those of us who descend from Johann Casper KRIEGER & his wife, Ann Christina HOFFARTH/HOFFERT, the immigrants to America, are: Schwaigern, Germany where the HOFFARTHs/HOFFERTs lived, and Kleingartach, Germany where the KRIEGERs lived.
