Dear Dr. Luxem,
On Oct. 20, 2008, Bernhard Dames, who was helping me with the Luxem genealogy search suggested I contact you directly. I had forwarded to him the translated version of your October 18, 2008 email. For personal reasons he was unable to do further research at that time. Then my mother became ill and I also put my research on hold.
My father's cousin, Carl Luxem Sr. (grandson of Mathias and Sophia (Knechges)Luxem) recently passed on. In reviewing his many notes and correspondence, I was able to learn more about the original Luxem's from the Gering/Mayen Trier area.
Would you be able to help me continue my search for family records in that area? If so, what is your fee?
I look forward to hearing from you. Mathias Luxem was my grandfather's father. Thank you.
