I have a cousin living in NY City.His name is John Her- bert Klink born in Mannheim Germany. He came to America in 1954 with his mother Kaethe Klink ,maiden name Bante after his father died in 1951 in Mannheim Germany.
At the moment I am trying to find out where my granfathers were born and in which part of Germany. To this day I am back to 1794.What exited me most is that in a church book from 1854 I found a inscription that one family member emi- grated to America.Because it is written in old German I could not read everything, but hopefully I solve that problem.
If anybody out there ist interested about more infos he can email me.
