I'm Shawn Wittman, and my great grand mother in Germany was Maria Weigel. She was married to Wilhelm Schnickmann. Then they had my grandma Waltraut Schnickmann, and her 2 brothers and sister. Her 3 siblings were old enough to go through WW2, but my grandma was a teenager in the middle of it. Than in 1946 she met Reuben Wittman and had my mom when she was 18 in 1947. Then at 20 she came to America. I wonder if we're distant relatives.? If you have any questions let me know.
