Are we German or French?
I have my family traced back to Pieter Klein in 1575. He and several generations after him before they came to America are listed as being from Stiensall, also Stiemsall Alsace.A few are listed as Postorff, Alsace. I am having a hard time trying to figure out if they are German(which we've always believed) or French. There are so many different records listing Alsace as Alsace, Germany and Alsace, France. I'm just unsure of where exactly they were from. Thanks for any input!
