Until recently, we did not know when exactly, where or how Great-Uncle Hans died. Now we know.
Our 8th and 9th great-grandfather Studebaker died this week 292 years ago, only three days before his 66th birthday.
This week 206 years ago, our 3rd (and 4th) great-grandfather Bücker passed away.

It would have been our (great-)grandmother 105th birthday this week.
