Nice to hear from you.
Since I posted that message Ralf Bucherer and I have been corresponding and sharing information. We have also discovered another cousin who lives in France, and sharing information with him.
Do you know the town your grandfather came from? We are working our way forward from the late 1600's and we haven't gotten to the years when the grandfather of any living person might have been born yet in the Ferenbacher line. We are working on the Ferenbachers of Schuttertal Parish (towns include Schuttertal, Seelbach, Litschental, Koubach, Steinbach). Some of the Ferenbachers there were originally from Triberg. There are lots of Andreas and Franz's in the line.
If you think you are conntected, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will give you the link to a site we use to share information.
I look forward to hearing from you
