We just had a family reunion of Ganschows in San Jose, CA. I did find out that the first one of our line here in the USA was Johnn H. C. Ganschow. However I also know there are three Ganschow villages in Germany. I didn't know any had lost their lives in the Holcost durin WW 11. Very interesting. We were told by our parents that we had come from Holland at one time. Not proven yet. Thank you for the information.
