Re: Jewish Ackermans
I hope I didnt come across as either anti semetic or unsympathetic to a person wanting to get in close touch with thier past. One of the most wonderful humans I have had the good fortune to know passed away in september. My mother in law was jewish and her family were Russian Jewish immigrants. I have met many members of the family and they are and were wonderful people. My father in law was German.They adored one another and the memory of both of them individually and as a couple is inspiring.
I think we all get drawn to Genealogy because we have a yearn to link with our past.
I have a distant cousin named Ackerman who lives in St. Louis area. that is the reason I was at the Ackerman forum.Maybe you already know but the name Ackerman describes a person who clears land . This is according to a German co worker.
Doug and I share commongr gr gr grandmothers.
I think the advice to keep studying documentable evidence will be the most helpful.Good luck to you and happy huntingJohn
