Thanks to the ‘Schweich’ book, we’ve identified 685 German or French ancestors. Also, a Paris contact has sent details of his family tree, one member of which is directly related to our Kahn line. When time is available, and if the brain aches a little less, I shall incorporate new names into the organisational file established on Ancestry.co.uk. Then, we’ll exceed 800 continental relations.
Unfortunately, we still have no news of Victor’s siblings, but we wait patiently and with hope. A contact in Trier suggested that Victor’s siblings (we’re not sure whether they are brothers or sisters) moved to Welschbillig in Germany and settled there. Welschbillig is very close to Schweich.
Needless to say, you’ll know immediately news is received. You’ll hear me celebrating, wherever you live. But in case you’re playing The Grateful Dead at full volume at the time, I’ll send e-mails as well. I prefer Duke Ellington but that’s another issue and I promise not to give you an old-fashioned look commensurate with my age.
Keep looking in.
