Hello, Geb.

I am not from Deutschland. My ancestors migrated to Pennsylvania from Germany in the mid-1700's. Some came from Bremen, some from the Schwarzwald, but the ancestor of my last name came from Alsace, which was part of Germany at the time. In fact, the village where my primary ancestor came from still speaks German, despite the fact that it is now part of France.

I would like to go to DE some time, especially during Octoberfest!
