Ristau grandfather - update
Posted by: Toni Ristau Date: April 03, 2001 at 17:53:28
  of 64

Found information regarding my grandfather's brother, Otto Ludwig Ristau, birthplace shown as "Kleinwald". My understanding is that Cleinwald means "small forest", and it's actually a region, not a village. And -- it may be located in southwestern Germany, near Saarbruchen(?) So -- the family may have originated in southwestern Germany, not in northern Germany. Any help on the location of "Kleinwald" and possible Ristau associations there would be greatly appreciated -- post info here, or send to Thanks
