Rebecca's Roots: German Genealogy

Follow the links on this page to experience the travels of my German families as they emigrated from various parts of Germany to the U.S. and gradually spread westward. There is a separate page for each surname, which includes a brief family history. You will also find a page about German emigration, a map of Germany showing where each family originated, and where they settled in the U.S. Be sure to view the family photo album too.

Please note that this is a work in progress, and all lines are not thoroughly documented with sources at this time.
