Hello, cousin! Your grandfather, Peter Adolph Hemmer, and my grandmother, Elizabeth Hemmer Nary, were brother and sister! My parents are Al and Betty Jane(Nary)Szembrot. I remember the reunion you refer to, at Ellison Park, because I was also there! I remember your mom and dad very well; your mom especially was always helpful in answering my genealogy questions. I actually have more information on the MICHEL line of our ancestors than the HEMMER line.My oldest son was living and working in Germany for 2 years and together we met the pastor and secretary of the church in the village of Gabsheim, near Mainz (before German unification, in the state of Hessen-Darmstadt).I have been working at untangling about 300 years worth of church records there! I'm still waiting for a microfilm from my local Family History Center with records from Bliesen (in the Rhineland-Pfalz region, also near Mainz).Please email me for details!
