in the next year 2001, Manebach (a small mountain village in the Thuringian forest near Ilmenau, Germany) will celbrate the 650th anniversary of existence. Kammerberg was a small village nearby (included into Manebach 1922).
In the 19th century many families emigrated to America for economic reasons, some of them settled in Findlay/Hancock.
The following names are known: SCHREYER(SCHRIER), HAMMERSCHMIDT, K"UHN(KUEHN), HORNUNG(HORNING), HEYN, KOBE.
Are there any information about descendants of these families and family history? Have anybody knowledge on mask factory in Hancock originated from Manebach?
