I am doing research for someone stationed in Afghanistan, and have narrowed down
one family line, surname Schwarz (any spelling), to Ransbach, Bayern. There are
two places in Bayern called Ransbach (at least), and I am not sure how to decide
which one I want. The family emigrated to Cincinnati, Ohio, circa 1900 so the
more modern (after all those wars) records and search sites are not going to be
helpful, nor can I find theses people on either the Castle Garden or Ellis Island
The names are:
August SCHWARZ, wife Mary GUNKEL (August born 7 Mar 1836, Anna born 21 May 1849)
Anna LINK, daughter of August and Mary, married to Charles B. Link at the time of
emigration. Anna was born 2 Nov 1866/7 and Charles was born 31 Oct 1865)
Can anyone offer any suggestions as to how I should begin this hunt in Bayern? My
German is less than minimal.
Any advice would be deeply appreciated.
