Visiting The House Where My Great, Great, Great, Great Great Grandfather Lived in Germany


This wasn’t my favorite photo of the year, but visiting this site in Hagnau, Germany was a highlight.  My ancestor Jacob Raber left this home in 1836 for America when he was 5 years old.  The exact generation and date I couldn’t confirm since my genealogy book is packed away in America somewhere!
