This is a loving tribute to my grandmother, the person who got me started on my family history journey. My grandmother ("Gram") often mentioned to me that I am "German, English, Slavic, Irish and French." It seemed important to her that I know that. The German side of her family came from a mysterious place called "Prussia." Prussia might as well have been Atlantis because there is nothing more fascinating than coming from a place that no longer exists. For years, I wondered about Prussia. Gram passed away in 1981. Years passed and I never forgot what Gram had said about Prussia. There was always a curiosity about it. So it began, in the year 2000 - the search for my family history! My passion is sharing my family history and helping others with theirs. History belongs to all of us!
