Hi Cathy, i believe in your line of Andreas since his Immigration. But where he came from. to my knowledge there are two important Hirschmann lines in the 15th century: the schorndorf one and the weissenburg one. the schondorf line is well known since century, especially through the nobilitation of their coat of arms through emperor Rudolph in 1606.every hirschmann, most of them without any proof are claiming that their roots are in schorndorf. but this is very hard to proof since in the years of the thirty years, the Schorndorf archives were lost through arson.
so my question is still valid: was Andreas related to the schorndorf hirschmanns, and how it could be proofed? regards dieter
