My wife's great grandfather, Frank SCHARWATH was born in Borana,
Germany in May 1825 and emigrated to South Louisiana about 1852. His
wife, Elizabeth EMLING was born in the same town in Jan. 1851 and
emigrated to the U.S. about 1867.
My knowledge of European geography is very limited. Can someone tell
me where Borana is located and if it still exists. Further, is there
any way we can determine information concerning the ancestors of the
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
