I just joined the group. I just started to do genealogy research seriously, but
I've collected bits of information for a while = novice.
I live in New York City. My native language is English, and I speak and read a
little German. My husband is fluent in German. I am intermed/advanced in using a
computer (not so great at the techie side) and my Internet experience is extensive.
(I'm a librarian.)
We have dates for great grandparents in some lines (some back to 1700s), but no
info in other lines.
The family names I am researching are:
BODENHEIMER - >from Darmstadt late 1800s + early 1900s, earlier >from Biblis.
LEWISOHN and SCHAMES- Frankfurt, family of Fanny
LEWISOHN (late 1800s) married to Ludwig SCHAMES art dealer of Frankfurt
GUTMANN- Julia, married to Jacob MAYER of Frankfurt, came >from Stuttgart, father
Julius. We have no other information.
GUELDENSTEIN of Sontheim (near Stuttgart) and Buchau, now Bad Buchau. Some of
these came to US in the 1800s.
