Ma très chère amie Mary-Ann.
Je suis une fille d\'un GI. C\'est quelques mots pour te dire un infini Merci. C\'est toujours vers toi que je viens chercher cette noble compréhension que je n\'ai trouvée nulle part ailleurs. Tu es une mère pour nous tous, même si nous avons le même âge. Nous savons t\'apprécier, tu sais tellement bien nous conseiller. Toujours à mon écoute, m\'aidant à poursuivre ma route, plein d\'embûches et de difficultés pour serrer un jour peut-être un être cher qui me rappellera mon autre Patrie les Etats-Unis. Seule une amie comme toi l\'ayant vécu est capable d\'un tel dévouement pour autrui. Réussir, réunir est la chose la plus belle, mais je sais, je vois je comprends la plus difficile. Ta grande richesse est de comprendre les êtres au plus profond de ce qu\'ils sont avec respects. De tout coeur mes félicitations. M-R .

Dear Mary Ann

Thank you for helping my sister find her American family. I know that has been her dream her entire life. Of course we knew nothing of this. I must admit I had a problem dealing with the news for quite some time. Through many emails I have come to cherish the fact that I have a sister.
I thank you for all your efforts to make her dream come true. She is truly a bright spot in my life.

With love
Jeanette

Thanks Mary, with your persistence you were able to find my granddad.
It only took 2 and half years, I was ready to give up but you never did.
Also thanks for all the translations you did for me. My Dad had all of these
documents in German and I didn\'t know where to start. I highly recommend Mary if you need help. Thanks again for all your work.

I am the grandaughter of Eugene Schanzenbach who is on your site as an immigrant from Binswangen near Neckarsulm in 1864. He had 9 children and changed the surname to Johnson in 1914. Your list also shows a Maria Luisa Gilliare leaving Binswangen same year - 1864 for US. I believe that is who Eugene married altho we have her name in family records as Gilliard. We are searching fro family still in the Binswangen area - any help is appreciated

Ich bin 82 und über 50 Jahre glücklich verheiratet mit einer Frau namens Ute Annelouise Kuhn, geboren 9. August 1938 in Baden-Baden und damals wohnhaft in Rotenfels Murgtal, Ortsteil Gaggenau, bis sie 1957 nach Holland kam. Ihr Grossvater Josef Anton Kuhn ist Anfang 1900 von Stein am Kocher umgesiedelt nach Rotenfels und Ute hat immer in das Haus gewohnt was er gebaut hat.

Ein Sohn von mir zieht den Stammbaum Staal nach. Ich hatte schon lange vor Ihre Gegend zu besuchen, vielleicht dieses Jahr. Ich ware Ihnen dankbar wenn Sie mir einen Start geben könnte auf den geologischen Weg der Kuhns weil ich sehr stark daran interessiert bin.Was ich an Auskunft habe möchte ich Ihnen gerne übertragen. Ich sehe nunmehr eine Rückàusserung entgegen.

Herzlichen Gruss Theo und Ute.

My sixth great grandfather was Andreas Schweitzer born between 1690 and 1704 in Stein am Kocher, Germany. My seventh great grandfather from Stein am Kocher was Mathias Schweitzer born there in 1687. I would love to visit there and find them in the record. Where do you suggest I go and who should I see? I noticed in your web information that you indicated there were Schweitzers in Schefflenz but did not see them listed on your Stein am Kocher list of surnames. Interesting that my last name is Wertz and you indicate there were Wirth/Wurth's in Stein am Kocher. Thank you for all your information and I am interested in hearing from you. My great grandmother Mary Jane Sweitzer was from Berks County, Pennsylvania (she married William Campbell Wertz) and her father was Abram Sweitzer (married to Elizabeth Schaffer) who at one time was the foreman at the Oley Furnace in Berks County.

I have several Kolmels, Hoffarths, Nolds in my ancestry. However I am not 100% certain they are really mine. My problem begins when my ggg grandfather Georg Weidenbacher and his wife Johanna Kolmel came to the US. I have a passenger record showing them coming and I know there is proof that a Georg Weidenbacher left Germany in 1867 with \"Johanna Kolmel, frau, und kinder\". But how am I to know that is definitely the same one. I have as Johanna\'s parents Mathias Kolmel and Helena Maier. Johanna was born around 1819 in Steinmauern and George Weidenbach in 1816 in Steinmauern. I would love to have his parents names and if I am correct on Johanna. Thanks. Peace and Blessings this New Years.

Dear Mary Ann,

Thank you very much for what you have done for my father\'s cousin, Carin. Carin was here in the United States for a month with my Dad in Virginia, during which time they were able to visit us in Florida. I was so excited to meet a relative that we never knew of. To me her story is unique but I know there are others in the same situation, searching for lost relatives. I think what you are doing to help locate them is great. And thank you for being so helpful when Carin was traveling to Virginia, even talking on the phone with my father at the airport when Carin arrived, in the minutes just prior to their meeting face to face for the first time.

In America we have a TV show called \"The Locator\" where they reunite lost family members. Anytime I\'ve watched it I wonder how people feel when they find out they have a relative out there that they have never met or never knew about. If meeting them might feel awkward or uncomfortable. I certainly never imagined I would have the opportunity to find out! But I did have that opportunity and I can tell you that I felt neither awkward or uncomfortable at all. I felt like I had known Carin my whole life, even with the language barrier. In this short time she has brought our family closer together and the relationship she and my father have is very special. I am now planning a trip to Germany next year to visit her, and I am thrilled to be able to do so. Thank you for helping to make all that happen. Carin speaks very highly of you and she feels you have performed a miracle, making possible for her what she has sought after for decades.

Thank You Again and Happy Birthday!
Holly Cerullo

Für mich grenzt es an ein Wunder, was du Mary Ann für mich erreicht hast.Seit 50 Jahren suchte ich nach meinem Vater in Amerika. Ich kannte weder die Stadt, noch sein Geburtsdatum. Mit den wenigen Angaben hast du es geschafft, ihn zu finden. Er lebt zwar nicht mehr, aber anhand eines GEN-Tests mit einer anderen Tochter von ihm haben wir das große Los gezogen. Ich habe eine große Familie dazugewonnen und erfahre viel über meinen leiblichen Vater. Ich danke dir von ganzem Herzen für deinen Einsatz, dein Wissen und deinen ausgezeichneten Spürsinn. Rena

Mary Ann,

It is wonderful what you are doing to help the people who are trying to find their families. You have found for Carin the family that she has dreamed about since she was 7 years old. Carin is my cousin, she has spent the last month with me in Virginia, USA. It has been a wonderful month and I have introduced her to other cousins. She has heard a great deal about her father and her family. She has seen many pictures that have helped her connect to her family in America. Thank you for the help that you have given her! Carin and I have become very close. Thank you again for helping us to connect.

Don Moore
