My name is Gus Henry Pfeiffer III. My g-g-grandfather was Henry Charles (or Heinrich Carl) Pfeiffer whose birthplace in several U.S. censuses was Germany or Prussia. He was born on 28 Jan 1839. He was a tinsmith and later became a rancher. In his will (died in San Antonio TX on 7 Aug 1921), he left $1,000 to his brother in Muhlhausen and $500 to his sister Mary Mueller in St. Louis, MO. HIs brother's name was Christel. On his death certificate, one of his sons listed his father's name as H.R. Pfeiffer and his mother's name as Eva or Ena Weiss. Does anyone know of this Pfeiffer family in Muhlhausen?

Just came across something that is anecdotal but interesting. The oldest ancient skeleton I match is a Roman soldier from Munich dated to 300 AD. My ancestry traces to a town named Mudau in Germany which still has remains from the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes. Apparently this was an area where goods would be transported up the Neckar river and then taken over land to Main river as a shortcut. Now the coincidental part, this is the flag of Scheidental which is part of this German town, a Roman soldier!
Hello, I am Harold Hertlein. I did the Y DNA test and you were a genetic match to me. I am looking for some help locating my ancestors who came from Germany. Although I was born and raised in the United States, I know that my 3rd great grandfather came from Germany, and we believe that he was born in 1817 in the area of Unterelsbach, Germany. His name was George Frederick Hertlein. His wife, who was also born in Germany in 1824, was Maria Katherine Biegler.
Although our family has detailed information about George after he traveled to the area of Sandusky Ohio in the United States, we have not been successful in finding out about his life in Germany. We would like to locate where, exactly, George was born, and where he lived in Germany. If possible, we would like to find out about his parents also.
Any genology help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
