Not all of the photos are of the villages as this scene of the
Heidelberg castle lighted at night shows. However, some of our ancestors

camera carrying tourist. Many different styles of buildings are to be seen
in Germany. Many of the First Colony people came from this area.

has a beautiful setting but other villages do also. This was just over the
border in the former East Germany.
