I was wondering if you are related to Katharina Ast who was married to Jacob Flamann. I believe she would have been my 2x great grandmother. My dad (Randy Flaman) also had a cousin living in Germany named Rick Rumpel who passed away a couple of years ago. He did a great deal of Genealogy with our family. He is related to Tiefenbach family – my grandmothers family. I am actually trying to learn German to help with reading documents and I have always been interested in all things Germany. I live in Lethbridge Alberta but my dad is originally from Regina Saskatchewan and area.
Feel free to reach out.
