My Trip to Scherwiller Looking for Family Ancestors
I traveled there about 20 years ago. My grandmother Ernestine Hugele was born in Scherwiller. My great grandmother Josephine Ernst was born in Chatenois.
The time I was in Scherwiller was an early afternoon and it appeared all of the shops were closed, like a siesta time in Mexico.
I did visit the cemetery and also something like a town hall where I was able to get a copy of my grandmother's birth certificate.
Since that time, I have discovered relatives in this country and there. It was truly an enlightening experience.
I felt I discovered a family I didn't even know I had.
