Well it is 2014 and probably a year since I last posted. At this point my genealogy has been slow but with some progress on my written book about my family. Still in early stage but have added various biographical comments about my uncles and aunts on Rettammel side. Also gathered some new information from Beyond History group out of Hamburg, Germany regarding my great-great grandmother Louise Felix and her parents in former Prussia. Also in last year some contact was made with various 3rd, 4th and possibly 5th cousins on Rettammel sides. So I guess not slow but progress being made.
