Obviously this will be just a partial list but as I read back through some of the other messages I thought it might help connect others too. There is a mention in the Bible (Joshua 19:33)of a town Adami near the Dead Sea. Might this explain the Mashad connection? In 1274 the Order of St.John of Jersualem, located in Reidelshofen, Germany, brought workers from Balzano in Northen Italy (approximately 35 east of Switzerland and 35 miles south of Austria)to build their "main Church". Our documented family history traces to Joh Konrad Adami no dates his son Conrad Adamy(i) Born February 21 either 1719 or 20 in NiederWeisel Germany died October 2, 1807. he married Julia Haub, b. 2/15/1718 or 9 d.1/9/1773 If anyone has dates for Joh Konrad Adami,information about his wife etc. please let me know.
