My name is Brigitte and I am trying to do some research or find family in Germany. I am American born but my mother and her entire side of the family before her are from Germany. My Grandmother spent some time in an orphanage from what I understand but never really spoke much of her German life. I have her birth certificate, along with my mothers, her sisters and my great grandparents. That is all that I have to go on for now though. Are German records easily accessible on here? Her maiden name was Keller and her mothers maiden name was Weyerhauser. I also have maiden names of Helmbeld and Sprenger. I will say that I am at a loss and not sure which direction to go. Several years ago, my great Grandmother, Josephina Keller (Weyerhauser), passed away and I know that I have cousins there that handled her belongings. I would just love to know more about this side of family and it's history. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
