Help at the RatHaus

June 18, 2009

Stephen Honkomp, the man who has been the source of a lot of information about our ancestry on the web, works at the RatHaus in Steinfeld, and we finally got to see him this afternoon. He was a great help with the history of Steinfeld. We bought a big book about the town’s history from him. He called the archives (the number wouldn’t work for Marilyn earlier in the day) and made sure that they would be ready for us in the morning. He told us about the cemetery and assured us that there are Frekings there.
