Jon ffrench thanks for the information.I know Kunselsau very well Hillsboro sent me a book on German Pork Butchers in Britain and one of them was actually an ancestor of a friend who lives in Untermasholderbach and he called his cousin who was directly related to him and we had a get together and i passed the book to him he was overjoyed with it all.
