hope that my web site will be helpful to you with the few

I would particularly like
Mr René Wendling.
Without him I would be unable to trace back my ancestors
because, as most of the archives were destroyed during the
successive wars which destroyed Alsace and particularly
Drusenheim, the researches are difficult. I thank him to
make his contribution to my alsatian historical culture
especially with his book "Chronicles of
Mr and Mrs Heeren who
helped me in my researches in Wilhemlshaven.
Mr Wolfgang Ostertag and
all the Ostertag/Easterday.
Mrs Monica Young for a
precious help in the german translations.
The American Association
The German Association
And all the cousins who
made the researches in the Alsatian archives
Mr Pierre Perny for his
book: "Drusenheim: Deux destins, le Rhin et les Guerres"
from which I extracted some pages.
Mr Bernd Siebert author
of 'Damals in Altheppens 'from which I extracted the photos
I all translated french
to english and vice versa so I ask you to be indulgent if
you find some mistakes.
