Hey phil it's me. Yeah our name has german connotations, and dad's mother's (our maternal grandmother's) family are the guys who live in Switzerland. That much I knwo for sure. I also know that our maternal grnadmother was actually born in America but moved to Germany when she was aged 6 or something yoiung like that. She was born in a leap year, so if that rings a bell in any other Ahns out there please let us know, as this could be a promising lead. So technically we are quarter German Phil! Dad always said that there were alot of Ahns in Denmark, especially in the capital (Copenhagen?). I don't know if he was just repeating what someone had said by looking through the phone directory or if he went there at all personally. And by doing a google search the VAST majority of Ahns seem to be of korean origin. Another potential clue is that it seems that at least on of the male children in each generation ahs been given the middle name of "Martin". You got it in our generation, dad in his, and before that it was Frederick Martin Ahn, and before him Joseph Martin Ahn. I am sure that these should ring a bell in someone's mind somewhere. Dad says he doesn't know of anyone before Joseph Martin Ahn, but based on that I am thinking that it is the trend/tradition etc etc.
