Searching for my history
Posted by: Todd Folmar (ID *****8482) Date: January 03, 2007 at 17:52:12

I would like to trace my family history back to Germany if possible, but I don't know where to start. I can trace back only as far as my great grand father. I see these websites promising all kinds of information; does anyone have any experience with them? Can you tell me which if any of them are any good. Also, there is a rumor in my family of a book detailing the Alabama Folmars up through my grandfather or perhaps even my father. Does anyone have any knowledge of such a book? I am interested in the information; I don't see the need to reinvent the wheel if it already exists. I appreciate any insight any of you can offer. Thanks,
