About Our Family Research

My complete family lives in the Odenwald, between Bensheim, Lindenfels, Winterkasten and Gadernheim (Lautertal), along the "Nibelungenstrasse" (Street of the Nibelungen). My Grandfather is born in Gadernheim and died in the I. World War.
My Granduncle tells me some historic family stories. A lot of his Granduncles emigrat in the USA. I´m related with Kaffenberger in Elmshausen-Wilmshausen and Grün in Bensheim.
He offers me some informations about the name "Katzenmeier": it comes from "Katzenbuckel".(There was a man Meier, who comes from the hill Katzenbuckel).The "Katzenbuckel" is a part of the Bergstrasse, near by Bensheim.
