PETER STEINMETZ, Dietel Russia, Montana

Here is an update on information concerning Peter Steinmetz who left Germany to farm along the Volga River as did thousands of other Germans. We purchased the Pleve chart tracing Peter and all his descendants and were puzzled by the listing of his hometown in Germany as Heimarg. Help from respondents to my first query gave us the correct name: Heimkirchen. A friend visiting Germany brought information about the town, a map of the tiny village and names from the phone book of Steinmetz families living near by. We hope to take Peter's line backwards in time in Germany now. Please respond if anyone out there has already done this, or if you have suggestions on how to proceed. Thank you. Laura Steinmetz
