Ackerman - NW Iowa - German
Hi.I'd like any info that might be given to me on my family line.I know my family is from Germany, I think an area called Ausvriesland (sp?) where they speak Low German.The original spelling was Akkerman.Evidently myself, all my cousins and our parents all look Dutch so I'm guessing that at one point we were from Holland.
This is what I know.We've had several generations living in George, Iowa although they had come from somewhere more to the south prior to that.I believe they came from Germany in the 1700's.I know there is a Peter Ackerman (Iowa) which is either my great grandfater or my great-great grandfather.
Any info that can be provided would be very appreciated.
