My Alsatian Genealogy
I just discovered your website: getalsaced.com!
It has special interest to me because my paternal ancestors emigrated from Switzerland to Mittelwihr after the 30-years war in the 1600's until they emigrated to Illinois in the 1840's/50's.
My wife and I made our first visit to Alsace (stayed in Mittelwihr) the summer before last. What a wonderful week that was. We met a cousin who shares a common ancestor back from the 1600's who now lives in Riquewihr.
We met a local genealogist who provided a rich tracing of our ancestry through the Alsatian period. We enjoyed the land and the people.
How fortunate you are to live there!
