Hi Diana, you would have a better chance if you started looking for addresses in Dettlebach, I'm sure there would be services in Germany to do look ups on living people.

I am trying to find descendants of Anthony Schmidt and Margaret Jane Kremer. They were married 1851, Oberheimbach, Rheinland. Anthony was a Vine Dresser and was sponsored to Australia by Henry Lindeman, a wine grower in the hunter Valley. Anthony worked for Henry Lindeman and repaid to him the money he had paid to bring the family to Australia. The family set sail for Australia aboard the "Catteaux Wattel" and arrived Port Jackson on the 9th March, 1855. A son John was born as the ship was berthed at Port Jackson. Their eldest daughter Elizabeth, later known as Catherine was born Germany in 1852, she is my gr grandmother. Four more children were born in Australia,Odilla, 1857-1860;
Susanna b: 1859; Adam b: 1864; Mary, B: 1867. The Schmidt family changed their surname to Smith. there could be descendant's living Clarence Town.
Source of information; Ann Louise Golder, a desendant of youngest daughter, Mary Schmidt.

I have German ancestors who came from "Gerswalde" Germany in 1874, which I think was part of East Prussia. That part of Germany is now in Poland. Can anyone tell me the Polish name for "Gerswalde" now?

I am looking for my biological grandfather, Henry Drake. The only detail that I know is that he was in Vermont, USA around 1957. His daughter, my mother, is Claire Laurendeau. I was told that he came from Germany and was not from the United States. I will ask my mother tomorrow for more information.

MILLER/MUELLER - I am trying to find anything in regard to my Miller/Mueller family members who apparently lived in the Singleton area. Christian (b. 1828) married Helena Kirchauer (?). Any additional info would be most appreciated. Many thanks in advance

Aaron Laurendeau--- Your Aunt Jeannie should be able to give you some information. Aunt Betty
and Aunt Irene were afraid of him for some reason
and wouldn't say anything more. They were probably afraid of losing Claire to him.
