I have seen some comments about different kinds of Germans, my grandparents used to maintain there were High Germans and Low Germans (mostly referring to the language), and we were the Low ones. All of my Dad’s ancestors and family spoke German in the household, in commerce, in religion, and in education there in Illinois, until WWI tensions made them decide to make it all English with an Illinois accent, and Beckmann became Beckman. Skipping the country when he did, he missed out on the annexation of Schleswig-Holstein, the Austro-Prussian War, and the Franco-Prussian War, with the high litelihood of not surviving any of that. Germans in the USA loved their culture, but had no love for the nobility and their harsh military discipline. .

Thank you for the information. I’ve been able to track almost every ancestral line in my family back to the days of Robert the Bruce, but my attempts to find the German line stop with my great grandfather who immigrated in 1878. Either he changed his whole name, with the exception of the sirname Heinze, or he doesn’t exist in their traditional records.
