Hi Dovie, Just reading your message re the Riegers from Baden Baden Germany. I have posted a message to Norbett Rieger asking if he has any info on the Riegers from Bempflingen as this is where my great grandfather was born before coming out to Australia. My great great grandfather was Johannes Rieger born 1st July 1832 in Bempflingen and died 14 May 1878. His parents were Johannes Rieger and Anna Maria Appelbach. I have no dates or places of birth or death for his parents. My G-G-Grandfather married twice: 1. Friederike Cllass b21 Feb 1833 in Kleinbetlengen d10 December 1868 Bempflingen married 16 August 1859 Bempflingen
2. Anna Maria Kuhnfuss. b. 12 February 1847 Bempflingen d. 20 November 1912 Zubengin married 13 July 1869 Bempflingen My great grandfather David Rieger was the youngest of 4 children from the second marriage and came out to Australia where he lived until death.
If you have any information that can be added to any of this info it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Vanessa.
