I have found this man, Hans Monhardt from Telephone directoies and have written to him twice.I also found his web-site and see that he must be a powerful industialist.I wonder if these addresses are his work address and his staff may not be passing my letters or maybe because of the Anthrax scare they are not opening overseas mail they do not expect.However, since my last name is the same as his, you would think he would be curious.I also found a website with nice color photos, but could not find an email address for him.I will try again and let you know of my progress.
Your last post was so helpful.I would imagine that I should concentrate on Trulikon and find the emails or addresses for the County Clerk, if that is the term or the Historical Societies.I am very hopeful as there have been no wars on Swiss soil, so everything should be intact.If I send the information I have already compiled and let them know that I am interested in finding the wedding dates and birth dates to get back to further generation, I would assume that is what they need.
Do you think that I left anything out.How do I find the right office, what terms would I use to find the emails or phone numbers so that I can re-start my search.
My husband and his family are so excited that two of the families Monhardt have responded. We have seen photo's of the town Monhardt, Germany and the family is very excited and grateful.I have also applied to Genforum give the Monhardt name it's own forum.
All of your suggestions are welcome, thank you again.
