Hello fellow genealogists,
I have found that prescribing to Ancestry.com has been helpful in finding
information on this side of the pond. A couple months ago, after searching
for years, I finally found what month, day and year, and what ship he came
on for one of my great grandfathers who emigrated from Hesse, Germany. The
year was 1848 and he was listed as Johann Wicher, (although his real name
was Johann Conrad Weiker) but Ancestry had him listed under Weiker. So you
see there are other web sites that are helpful.
Wolf, your German Saxony web site has been very useful to me in the past
and I hope it will be around to help me find Conrad's wife's ancestry in
Leusel, Hesse, Germany. Her maiden name was Weigman.
Sorry that I don't have any suggestions to help you but keep up the good
work! A Happy New Year to you too!

I hope you had a good start into the New Year and I wish you ALL the
best for 2013 !!
Well, Brenda, you hit the nail right on the head !!
This question is being asked over and over again on all mailing lists,
and there is no easy answer for this ...
I just wish we could ALL work together to get some kind of an answer..
A few years ago I started to assemble a few researchers:
But unfortunately, there was not to much response to it
and the web site kind of died...
Is there any way to get this alive again ??
I can't do everything just by myself and I need your help..
We should ALL work together and share our experiences
good and bad we had in the past..
We need everyone to pitch in !!
Of course, as always, there are a lot of options to accomplish this..
We could put the website: http://wiki-en.genealogy.net/German_Researchers
to life again.. Or we can start a new database on our homepage:
http://www.germanyroots.com/ or we can go to our new website:
http://www.germanyemigration.com/ and start something entirely new...
I am looking forward to any of your ideas and wish you all a good night !!
Sorry, I am not posting to give your answer but am posting that I too am
very interested in a reliable, honest researcher as I am at a dead end
my GG grandpa there.
Hope we get some good leads !
