Re: Julia Acker 1983 Bavaria
In a very mobile society such as America, it becomes difficult to trace one's ancestors. My father lived in Oakland, California, as did his parents; but his grandparents lived in Seattle, Washington--and where their parents originated from is still a mystery to me. Hence, that is why I am searching for my great-grandparents.
Because you live in such a relatively small area; probably most of your ancestors lived in Bavaria, so it becomes simple for you to keep tract of your forebearers--not so in America.
