We want to state that the dates & places we have listed for Johannes, Anna & some of their children have not been positively proven, though we feel it is the best information we have at this time. It is not our intention to mislead anyone, so if you find any errors or have documentation proving otherwise, then we would appreciate hearing from you so that we can make corrections. We also have no documentation proving Anna's last name. We just assume it is MINNICK/MINNICH at this time.
