I just returned <June 2004> from Germany and discovered my immigrant ancestor's village called Waldtann (like looking for a needle in multiple haystacks - there are many villages in Germany). My gggrandfather, Johann Jacob went to Michigan upon his arrival in 1883. Would like to know any of his descendents. These would be Crandalls and Blairs, from what I can gather as the one son Fred Blumenstock, was my ggrandfather.
I would also be interested in knowing anyone connected to Jakob's father, Jakob Friedrich, his father--Johann Andreas, and his father--Georg Michael. Georg Michael had Johann Andreas in 1790 in Grimmschwinden. I have yet to go to Grimmschwinden to find further information.
I would be willing to share what I have for further information and copies of photographs of my ancestors.
