Re: Proud to be an Ackerman!
I'm told that we are German as well but have yet to find one. I have found a possible Dutch or German by the name of Stehpan (not Stephen) Ackerman that arrived on the St. Andrew ship from Rotterdam Netherlands in 1738 to PA. I have also found that Akerman/Ackerman probably orginated in Great Britain. But don't know much about that yet.
