Hi Chris, It's been quite a few years since we chatted about the Nischbach's (2000-2001).
Since then, there was a familienbuch (FB) published for the village of Neubeschenowa, by Hans Grimm. It turned out to be the motherload for me.Up until then, I thought my family had been from Obad, or at least, resided there.I purchased the book on a CD.
Iknow that when we corresponded, we felt there was a link, but we couldn't place it. I wouldn't be surprised if your family isn't found there as well.
I saw that Jody McKim made a post in response to your inquiry. She is the administrator of the DVHH site that she referenced. I subscribe to that group as well. It has been such a blessing of support and information. I really encourage you to join. I get the message in digest form so that it isn't overwhelming
Right now, with Christmas upon us, I'm busy, but I am going to see if I can see something on the CD that might apply to you.
