Your offer of help is quite generous, and I wonder if you could help me as well.
My grandmother, Augusta SALZMANN, was born in Germany on 14 Apr 1862.She emigrated to USA and was married in New York City in 1887.Her marriage certificate states her birthplace as "Kurhessen".Older family members remember being told she was born in what sounded like "Salzburg".
Did a town with a similar sounding name exist in Kurhessen in 1862?And if so, is the SALZMANN surname common in that area?
Thank you for any help offered. Dorothy Colwell firstname.lastname@example.org
