aunt Sigrid ALTROGGE from Belle, who by handing over a farm history and old letters, prompted the passion

to investigate the family history.



all family members, especially my parents and my aunts Rosi ZIMMERMANN, Ilse DÜLLMANN and Lisa RÖWE,


- listened, remembered and answered my questions,

- rummaged around old paperwork and photographs,

- made certificates and photographs available,

- my cousin Andrea, for the thought and book exchange as well as encouraging pats on the back when

   searches came to a halt.

This site could only emerge for I could trust on my husband and son's patient support in technical

and translation matters.


All this is not to be taken for granted!



If I forgot someone please pardon me.

Small solace: This site will be updated and improved regularly.



A mind once formed finds naught made right thereafter;

A growing mind will thank you evermore.
