What does one expect if you return to one of the Germany Villages of your ancestors, 300 years after their departure? An Oompah Welcome Band as below?
Or a retired hair dresser who just happened to be visiting her hair salon? In my case I met and talked to Mrs. Liesel Nabinger, a cousin many times removed, at her Nabinger Coiffeur (Salon) below:
Frankenstein, Saarland (94)
On June 4, 2010, I traveled to Frankenstein, in Pfalz on the Rhine, Germany, where many of the descendants of my earliest ancestors still live. Mrs. Liesel Nabinger and I are related through Johaan Heinrich Konrad Nabinger, who died in Frankenstein in 1762, and today Frankenstein is still the residence of many members of the Nabinger Family.
