Introducing a new part of our DDFA website - The Wittgenstein Corner researched and written by Ardis Dreisbach Grosjean. As Dreisbachs, we are very connected to the district in Germany known today as Siegen-Wittgenstein and which includes the area (county) called Wittgenstein. Yet many of us have very little idea of where it is, its history and indeed, of its importance the our family. Ardis Dreisbach Grosjean wants to fix this by providing a series of short articles about our homeland.
This website is being retired. This one is too old to get an SSL Security Certificate and people are being told that it is an unsafe website. That is not true. Our site is SAFE. But it is old and cannot be updated. So we are moving to a new website:
Heinrich Imhof, a distant cousin of many American Dreisbachs, has produced a much-needed and well received book: Hoffnung auf ein besseres Leben. The full title in English is: "Hoping for a Better Life; Emigration from Wittgenstein to America in the 18th and 19th Centuries". Written and published by Heinrich Imhof, Bad Berleburg, 2018.
