From the Inside Flap:

"When I first started researching my German ancestors I thought I would be able to go to the library and find a couple of books on village life and on the history of the region from which my ancestors came. What a shock, I couldn't even find a good book on German history in English! Since I only read enough German to read the old German records, the books written in German were too hard. Over the years I've run into small pieces of history here and there, but nothing substantial. So I think your book is a winner!"
            --Kathy Bonnell

"YES!!!!  This needs to be published!!  Thank you for sharing it with me to read. It was not dry like many history books are. It was so enjoyable, and one learns so much from it, without realizing how much one is learning from it. I'm hooked!!!!!"
 
            --M. Danzeisen

"Your book was really very enlightening.  You have done a remarkable amount of research and your narrative helps paint the 'real life' picture of how the facts and details impacted people's lives. I honestly had no concept of the challenges my ancestors faced. Many, many thanks for your efforts.  For those of us interested in the details of life from this part of Germany, this resource will give our families a small window into our ancestors' world."
