In our genealogy research, I have been able to gather extensive information back to Johann H. We learned from his Civil War records and a marriage record that he came from a place called
Leutkirch Baden-Wurttemberg in Germany.
I am excite to continue research but now need to learn how to proceed as it is different from the resources we used for our American research.
Love to hear if anyone has looked for ancestors in Germany or other European Countries!
