Family History

Ancestor Johann Jacob Berlin born June 8, 1652, Niederbronn, France. I am looking to visit in May - would LOVE to find out if any ancestral relatives still live around there! If not, I'd at least like to find his grave / maybe some records to take pictures and bring home to siblings.

Anyone born in 1652 would not likely still have a grave standing. Graves aren't personal property that you own for all time.

And if the grave was there, it would be so worn away that you couldn't read it so a rubbing would be necessary.

Records will also be difficult because they were not required by the state so only church records exist when there are church records.

Who knows, you could have relatives still in town. It's not impossible : )

Good luck!
