I started getting serious about tackling the German genealogy learning curve. So I pulled out those old scribbled notes I made while talking to my father-in-law. Then I contacted some of my husband's cousins and discovered that they had in fact, done some research on their Kolbe line. Yeah! So now I knew a little more than George's recollection.
I also asked my mother-in-law, Theresa, if she knew anything about George's grandparents and aunts and uncles. She had a little information, but as far as she knew, no documented family tree existed.
So I jumped into the German research, not realizing how exciting and challenging it would be!
