On Saturday October 06 2018, George Heinzenknecht from the United States left the following message for Marianne Heinzenknecht:
"To Marrianne Heinzenknecht, My Great, Great Grandfather, Georg Heinzenknecht born in Bavaria (possibly Lichtenfels) in 1833. At the age of 47 he and his wife " Maria", son Georg (age 16) and I believe a daughtetr embarked on 21 August 1880 aboard the ship S. S. Zeeland from Anywerp bound for New York City. So far I have been unable to identify the birthplace of my Great Great Grandfather in Germany nor any of his ancestors (he was a lithographer) From the records of the city archives of Lichtenfels I note there was is a reference to a Georg Heinzenknecht, a fisherman on the Main River in 1580. I would so very much appreciate if you could help me to identify My Great Great Grandfathet's background lineage. Very truly yours, George Barrie Heinzenknecht ( my son is Forest and one grandson is another George Heinzenknecht"
