I have completed my full line on the Steinmetz family back to the 1500s in Germany. The family came from the village of Heimkirchen,Rheinland-Pfalz region and there are still Steinmetz people living there today and I have their phone numbers! Along with millions of others, they left for the Volga area of Russia, where they lived and died. They fled because of persecution and scattered across the midwest and western states. Our line ended up in Hardin, Montana, and I am having trouble finding more information on the females in the family. I am making no headway on the Bangerts or Hersteins. Associated names would be Bell, Metzker, Hohl, Reichel, Grauberger,Muller(Mueller), Goedel, and Barthel. If any of you are descended from this line and can help, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 406-656-9783. Thank you.
