Please e-mail me with your correct e-mail address; I have tried twice to send an e-mail to you, but it keeps coming back. Nussbaum, Germany is definitely a Franzman ancestral town. I forwarded your posting to the twenty or thirty Franzmans in the US and Canada I am corresponding with- in hopes that your history links up with that of someone in our group. In any case, youwould be considered as part of the Franzman group whose ancestors came from the area around Bad Kreuznach, since Nussbaum is about 10 to 15 miles west southwest of there, as I recall. Herb Franzman of Canada has been trying to get in touch with Franzman relatives in Australia- do you know of him? He will probably be trying to contact you also, on receipt of your posting. Welcome to the group!
