Wow, I love the website. Many thanks.
My Great grandfather was from Ferrette. He fought in the Franco-Prussian War and when the Germans annexed Alsace moved to Basel. Married a Swiss women, had 3 children and headed to the U.S. and had 13 more children including my grandfather.
I have always been interested in the heritage. So here is my question.
How will I get along in the area speaking only English? My wife is Swedish but that language will be little help.
I have plans of visiting for several weeks most likely in September.
Thanks in advance.
