Welcome to my blog!
My interests are family history, emigration history and travel. As part of my family history I became interested in the emigrants from Dorfprozelten, Bavaria, hence this blog. My ancestor George Kunkel was one of these emigrants to Australia. He married an Irish lady and I told their family’s story in my book called George Kunkel and Mary O’Brien. It is called Grassroots Queenslanders: the Kunkel family which was published in 2003.
In my research I’ve had wonderful help from Georg Veh, the local historian from Dorfprozelten in unravelling the origins of these families. All my posts on this blog are copyrighted to me and as you might imagine have taken a lot of time and effort to research. While I am happy for people to reference anything from my posts, I would appreciate that the reference lists this website and me as the author. Many thanks!
