Once again it will soon be June, my favorite month to visit our Novinger and Nabinger Homeland, the Rhineland-Pfalz region of Germany, on the border with France.

Frankenstein, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany

This year my wife, Tracy, and I are fortunate to be visiting Hermann and Else Nabinger who live in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, a city located on the west bank of the Rhine River, across from Mannheim, Germany. Hermann Nabinger and I, and most if not all of the Novingers in the United States, are related, as direct descendants from our common Nabinger ancestor, Hans Jakob Nabinger, who was born in Asweiler, Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany in 1630.

Hermann & Else will be taking us to visit the villages and cities in the Pfalz, or Palatinate, Region where the Nabingers originated and still live to this day. Hermann & Else’s photo appears below and we wish to thank them in advance for sharing the history of the Nabinger Family with us.

Following our visit with Hermann and Else, we will post further information about our Family’s history on this blog site.
