German SIG #Germany Major Breakthrough - GRUENHUT / GRUNHUT (u umlaut) #germany


Hank Lobbenberg
 

MODERATOR NOTE: German words spelled with the umlaut (two dots over
a vowel) please spell the word as shown below. This will help
people searching the archives for that word will find it.
A search for "GREUNHUT or GRUNHUT" will not produce results if the
name is written "gru (umlaut)nhut". A link to the SIG archive search
engine is included in the footers at the end of every GerSIG Email. ====>

Over the past weekend I finally completed a puzzle in my Lobbenberg family
tree. A few years ago, Peter Rohel sent me a link to the gru (umlaut)nhut
line. [ GRUENHUT / GRUNHUT u umlaut ]
My mother was Betty G. but I was stymied in my search for ancestors. The
link he sent connected my father to a sixteenth century man and then further
back.
Through contact with a third cousin, Fred Greenhut, I was able to add his
ancestors to my tree and discover that a brother of his great grandfather
was my 2nd great grandfather.
This breakthrough means that my parents were very distantly related.
