Beyond History – how it all started …

My personal journey into genealogy:
In 1988, I received a photo of my paternal grandmother who had died during the bombings in 1943. It was the first I had ever seen of her. Due to our resemblance, it immediately caught my interest. I felt a special connection and wanted to find out more about this “young girl”.

The crucial impulse for the intensive research of my own family I received during the early 1990s with an email from America. A descendant of a certain William Bentschneider who had emigrated from Germany to America in 1854 contacted me. It turned out that I had relatives in the USA. Since then, my own research has produced detailed information of over 2,000 persons in my family.
