We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

  1. One of my ancestors, Maria Johanna Pletschette, married Franz Flammang in 1792 in Colpach, Luembourg. Her marriage record says she was from Hostert, a village with a few Pletschettes that were related to those in Neunhausen. I have been unable to find her birth record or information regarding her parents. I tried to look at the Pletschette Family Tree website but it apparently has a problem and is inaccessible. Do you happen to know a resource for searching this family that you could recommend or of someone I could hire in Luxembourg to do some research? Thanks, Barry McCombs

    1. Dear Barry, I just came across your post today. I don’t check for comments very often. I don’t get too many. I am so sorry but I don’t have her in my database, and I don’t recognize her. And I don’t know anyone that does research in Luxembourg. The information that I do have is posted on Rootsweb for all to access for free.
