I have a question about your statement. Were they from Wittenburg, Germany or Württemburg, Germany (Wuerttemburg)?These are in two different regions.Wittenburg is in the north-east, where my family comes.Württemburg is the name of a state, Baden-Württemburg (They used to be two different regions) that lies in the South-West.
My family is the Rinke's that came over during the time of the Civil War, Christina Rinke and twelve children.They resided in Warren, Michigan. Their great children own the Rinke Car Dealerships in Michigan. I have more detailed information if anyone is interested.You can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
