Hello, I'm Kara Rippstein. I have been researching my family ancestors because we really didn't know anything about the family name Rippstein. I have traced us all the way back to Sebastian Rippstein( my great great great great great grandpa)Gustave Rippstein would be my great great great great grandpa. If you have anymore information about the family I would love to hear it. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. I also have some information now about the family if you would like to hear it. This is so interesting, Thanks!
