The Eichwald family of Kassel, Germany and the Braun and Felsen families of Romania, Hungary, and Poland were the focus of our research trip in 2012.
Much more information about this trip and genealogical findings is available on the trip blog at: http://eichwald-braun.blogspot.com/ . The blog includes family trees, family stories and photos, historical information and useful links, along with our day-to-day trip experiences and discoveries. Geneologists and historians may find useful information for their own research.
A comprehensive list of the families and towns relevant to the Eichwald, Braun, and Felsen families is at the bottom of this page.
I invite you to communicate with me to build our family trees and share information. Email at: Jeanette@jeanetteshelburne.com
