Re: Greetings from Germany

In Reply to: Greetings from Germany by Holger Reichard of 221

Hello, Holger,

My name is Patricia Reichard Wood. I live in Madison Heights, Virginia. My family in Virginia dates back to Heinrich Wilhelm Reichard (born April 18, 1870), who came to America about 1888. He married Maria Svoboda (born March 10, 1870). Heinrich's parents were Wilhelm Reichard (born February 12, 1819)and Wilhelmine Holderith Reichard (born March 16, 1836). Heinrich's grandparents were Johannes Ackerman Reichard (born April 17, 1786) and Maria Stroh Reichard (born March 1, 1786).

Heinrich's brother, Adam (born August 2, 1875) had a grandson, Werner Wolf (born 1928) who still lived in Germany during World War II. My father, John Reichard, visited him in or around Heinchen after the war.

We have started a website called and would love to have any information you can give us. I know one of Heinrich's brothers came to America with him around 1888 and settled in Pennsylvania. I see lots of Reichards on the internet, but have not been able to make the connection between the family lines. So I'm looking for information on the Germany family, the Pennsylvania family, and the Virginia family.

Thank you very much.
