1.1 My Paternal ancestors (in Germany):

  • AHLERS from Hamburg, Germany, with ancestors in Mecklenburg-Schwerin, specifically Hagenow and surrounding area.
  • SCHLÜTER from Kammerlanderdeich, Germany, with ancestors in Plön, Bornhöved, Schleswig-Holstein and surrounding area.
  • WURTH from Feldkirchen, München and originally from Altenheim, Baden-Würtemberg, Germany and surrounding areas. Here is a 'Hoch Adel' link via the Röder von Diersburg and Von Leiningen-Westerburg families to medieval royal genealogy.
  • KUNZE from Berssel, near Wernigerode, Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany and surrounding areas.
