I'm interested in how you know that George was a "Palatine German from Strasbourg or thereabouts".Strasburg is in northern Germany.I am a descendent of this guy also...grew up in NC, etc.Have lots of info, have conversed w/ Olive & seem to be where everybody else is..he came over on the Hero from Rotterdam in 1764.That's where it ends.The information that he was from Strasbourg is interesting to me. I work for a German company and am in Germany 6-8 times per year.I'm generally in the Munich area, but we also have a factory in Northern Germany near Hanover that I sometimes visit.I sometimes have lots of dead time on the weekends especially and have often wondered where I could go, and/or what I could do over there to figure out more.I wondered if going to Rotterdam if there would be records of addresses,etc. for people that bought tickets on the Hero... I really have no idea what to do next.If I could get some ideas, it's feasible that I could arrange to visit some institution, etc. that would yield us more info...I just don't know what to do next.
This is why I'm interested in why/how you suspect he was from that area?
