French or German
by: Suzele

Hi Paul,

Your ancestors were French citizens and also at certain times German citizens. But they were definitely Alsatian.

Alsace is a funny little region that is quite different than the rest of France. I really should create a product for all of you doing genealogy to give you a really good idea of what Alsace is and what it means to be an Alsatian ; )

I wonder if that's something that would really help you get a feel for your ancestors...

Let me know!
