In Reply to: Re: Reiffers-Reifers Luxembourg, IA, SD by Paul Reifers of 31

Paul: There is a cluster of villages around Rodershausen, both East and West of the Our.
In going through birth, death and marriage documents I have come up with a number of villages in a cluster. They seem to be moving West, at least some of the Reifers moved on. Some of the villages are: Pronsfeld, Lunebach. Lichtenborn, REIFF, Lutzkampen (Reiffers), Munshausen, Siebenaler, Wiltz.

Nicholas 1805-1867,Mathias, Michael and Philip were all last placed in Rodershausen.
I have a letter from Phillip to Michael stating he had 12 children, who displaced to France, Belguim and some more than likely stayed in and around Rodershausen.

I have been communicating with a young man from Beiler, Luxembourg, by the name of Dan Donkels, who did a lot of research in that area. He would be a real good contact and would probably point you in the right direction. He found where the Reifers residence was from an old document. However, the house has since been replaced by an apple tree. I've been thinking about going over there myself but am getting up in years so had better hurry.

I would be interested in the pictures or anything you can find out. Also, I have a number of documents that I would be happy to reproduce and snail mail to you. Just let me know what names and dates you are interested in and an address of cource.
