About The Research

Research began in July 1999 and found its way into written biographies as a way of sharing research with family members. In 2001, a wonderful collection of old family photographs surfaced along with original documents dating to 1864. Internet images of German villages, churches, and maps along with German village history books rounded out the research, telling each ancestor's unique story in words and pictures.

This research is an individual project with the exception our Robrecht ancestors, whose research was greatly enriched by the efforts of our cousin, George Meister of Munich, Germany, and his sister, Anne Meister of Arlington, VA, who are descendants of Elisabeth Robrecht's brother, Anton Robrecht.

I hope you enjoy reading about our German ancestors as much as I enjoyed writing about them!
