Alhough most of my ancestors were already living in America at the time of the Revolution, I have some that stayed in Europe.
I was wonderiing if the Hessians soldiers who were fighting along side the British, were from all of Germany, or just one part. My ancestor's surname was Speck/Specht. The Specks were from the Rhineland Pflaz Germany. They came to American in the 1820's.
I wonder if I could search German records, or ask for assistance in locating Specks who might've served in the Hessian military, and fought in America?
