Hello Leah Chance!
In respect to your posting of 7 May 2005 asking for a translation of a previous board message and a new
contact adress for Mack descendants, I would recommend
to search the mail list archives of the Rootsweb mail listhttp://searches.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/listsearch.pl
and when the page comes up enter amrev-hessians
That's the name of the mail list, and you will be surprised
what a wealth of information will be at your finger tips.
The name MAHR has been discussed in almost every year,
as well as the names of thousands of other Hessian soldiers
who made that fatefull decision to remain in America after
the Revolution was over. Just to get a general overview,
click on http://archiver.rootsweb.com/AMREV-HESSIANS-L
and you are really back in history class.
Trusting that this will help you (and other readers)
I am respectfully yours
John Helmut Merz
