Confession time: Anyone else feel like it’s a bear to try to scroll thru pictures on your phone? Since there are so many images from our three weeks in Germany, I decided to work on one piece at a time. Today, a little glimpse into the ancestral aspect of our journey. It actually started the day we landed in Frankfurt, because I do have ancestors from that city… Last name Kniss (Knise) if anyone is interested. It’s harder to feel a connection in those big cities, but I did find one quote that I appreciated:
Next on our ancestry tour was Wachenheim an der Weinstraße. This is in the wine region of the German state of Rhineland-Pfalz. From what I was able to determine via Ancestry and a valuable piece of family documentation, my husband’s ancestors, Philipp and Katharina (Mueller) Muenster, lived here, along with their son Friedrich (Frederick, who came to America) and other children. This is a beautiful town, like many we passed through in this region.
