Hi Julie, I had no luck finding your email. If mine shows up, please feel free to use it.I find it easier on both of us. Nicholas Schroeder, my 4th great grandpa,had another son, Charles(born 1827)who married Agnes Hohenbrink. This is my line. William Maag's daughter, Mary Catherine Maag (married John H. Schroeder) is anotherof my lines.I am have a line from Johann Kaufman(my 3rd great grandfather, born 1823). Is he the earliest Kaufmann you have? Do you have Albert Maag's wifes maiden name? And do have have any further than G. A. Kahle (my 5th great grandfather, born about 1765)? Thanks for your posting.
