    Dear Ann,
    my name is Annette Schukraft, née Hodel and I’m going to turn 50 at the end of the month. Just like you, I’m doing a little ancestry research and while looking for hints of my great-great-grandfather Johann-Leohnhard Schott, I’ve just discovered your blog. Now I’m very excited because I’ve found out that we have the same ancestors and so are related somehow. I’m a descendant of J.-L. Schott and his second wife Eva Jakobina Allinger. Johann Dietrich Schott, a son of these two, is my great-grandfather.
    Part of my family still lives in Großgartach and me myself I was raised there. Me and my siblings were baptised in the evangelical Lorenz-Kirche (church) in Großgartach at that same fond that’s on your photo.
    My parents have been sacristans in the Lorenz-Kirche for a long time, that’s why I have a special relation to the church, which stands in my hometown. It filled me with joy seeing all these beautiful old pictures of Großgartach. Due to the fact that many of my ancestors were winegrowers, also my parents, I love the landscape of the vinyards at the ‘Heuchelberg’ and therefore we’re often going hiking there (we live nearby in a little town called ‘Schwaigern’).
    You look very nice and I would love to hear from you!
    Here’s my e-mail address: aschukraft@web.de
    Best wishes,
