Where in Alsace is Anton Florang from?
by: Suzele

Hi whoever you are,

The good news is you have a relative from Switzerland, so you can go searching there for documents.

At least it's a small country!

But you will have to look in at least 60% of it. I'm assuming Adele stayed in the Germanic part ;)

As for Anton, where was he born?

Where did he live?

In Alsace I mean.

You really need this info if you want to make any progress in your family tree here in Alsace France!

Good luck and happy hunting,
