Hello Kristine, I would have e-mailed you privately through ancestry.com's message feature, but I don't have a membership, so I couldn't do that; therefore, please respond to this message using that feature so that I can talk to you privately (I know, so confusing!).
I saw that you are related to August Maas. I am descended from his sister Emily Maas who married Joseph M. Lena (Line, Liner, Louis, Luy, etc.). I hope that we can exchange information on the Maas family and its relations.
