Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Hi Darrel, sorry it took so long for me to get back to you, your message was sidetracked for a couple weeks on my wifes laptop, if your married I am sure you can appreciate that! I would love to hear more about your findings as well as Mr. Dietz. I actually think that Mr Dietz's brother contacted me a while back. You can see my work at: http://the5tolls.tribalpages.com/, the Pagel section is only a part of the total history, but because my mother's maiden name was Pagel, it is very close to me.
Any thoughts, corrections, pictures, stories or comments, would be greatly appreciated. I really reached a dead end with Christian Pagel, no idea of who his parents were at all. I have heard stories of how the Red army came through and burned and destroyed so much late in the war, that very little information survived. I sure do enjoy looking for it though! So thanks again and I hope to hear from you! Bill
