Welcome on my
I would like to make you share my two hobbies: genealogy and ancient postcards from Saverne.
The first one was generated long years ago by questions
that were asked to some members of my family : who were our ancestors?
where did they came from? After spending many years in doing researches,
in the Archives Départementales du Bas-Rhin
and the Centre d'Histoire des Familles de Guebwiller (Haut-Rhin),
I was able to write down my ascendant genealogical tree.
I discovered also the origins of my name in Alsace, in the 17th century, in a small village called Hochfelden. With some other descendants of the Heitmann families, we have created an association of the living descendants of the first identified Heitmann's.
|The second one comes from my earlier hobby: collecting stamps. Year after year I also collected all ancient postcards from the town where I was born: Saverne. I have now nearby 500 of them. Saverne is a small town located a the west border of Alsace, at the foot of the Vosges mountains. Saverne is also called "Cité des Roses" (City of the roses). I will present you the city as it looked like in the early years of the 20th century.||

Note: everything on this site isn't translated in english yet. I will try to translate the articles I wrote about the Heitmann's origins first. Then the pages about Saverne when they'll be ready in french. I think you do not need the genealogy pages translated. They are understandable in french too.
