German Web Sites
From September 27 to October 10, 2001 some of the Association members visited Germany with a focus on the areas we believe our ancestors lived, visiting Altona by land and sea (the point from which they embarked), and attending the festivities and witnessing the signing of the partnership between the Town of Markham and Nördlingen. The fall 2001 newsletter contains details and reflections on this trip.
Below are links to web sites of places and areas that were visited.
