My name is Martin. I am German, 38 years old and live in 'Bergisches Land', a nice and green area in the middle of North-Rhine Westphalia in Germany. The 'bergisches Land' consists of the towns of Wuppertal, with Barmen and Elberfeld, Solingen and Remscheid, and many other smaller towns.
I have been researching my ancestry for many years. My experience has made me many connections to other family researcher all over the world. It is exciting for me to get old foreign documents and to try to decipher them.
