Hello again Margarete,
My US cousin has located an immigration record in the USA. It states that John P Heinz and his wife Susanna and 8 children, sailed on the "Maria Louisa" from Antwerp Belgium, in August 1842 to New York. The name on the record was mis spelt as "Hens". Could you advise me if there are records available in Germany or Belgium that may expand as to where their original village may have been?
Thank you in advance Margarete.
