History book about Rothenrain, near Oberbach
Posted: 11/06/2015 - 9:53 am
A friend / colleague in Germany is working on a local history book about the village of Rothenrain, near Oberbach (in Bad Kissingen, Unterfranken, Bavaria, Germany). He would be interested in hearing from Americans whose ancestors emigrated from Rothenrain (probably mid-1840s or so). The village was one of seven villages and hamlets taken over by Germany during WW II and used as a training area (inhabitants were relocated elsewhere). 
 
If you had ancestors from Rothenrain, please contact me and I will put you in touch with Walter Koempel in Oberbach.
 
Thank you.
