    Mark, a few years ago I had some research done by someone from ProGenealogist which took my husband’s Weaver/ Weber line back to a 1756 Protestant baptism in Wurttemburg. At the time, I could not afford to have the researcher go further, although he told me there were older records available. Now, due to an almost exact DNA match to someone with a different surname, but from the same town, who has records going several generations back beyond mine, I’m interested in going back a few more generations. Do you have a set number of hours minimum research charge?

    I am trying to find the area in Prussia that my husband’s ggg grandfather, Louis Graben, came from. I understand I need to know the town or at least the area to start searching. How do I ind that? He came to the US ca 1855. I cannot find him as yet on any ship listing. The family says he stowed away in a pickle barrel and I am starting to believe them. Family legend has he came through NY; worked his way south in railroad construction. He married in Spartanburg, SC and moved through Carroll Co, GA into Clay Co, AL. Where he came FROM is one of my main brick walls.
