A distant relative has sent me the birth record for my great-great-great grandfather, who was born on 15 May 1799 in the tiny town of Offensen, kingdom of Hanover (modern-day Germany). This is one of those unexpected things that you don't expect to ever happen, basically because Georg came over in the late 1820s and his family bible was last seen somewhere in West Virginia years ago. But then, someone came across my genealogy website and sends me an email.

Georg Ludwig's birth record.

My mother was very pleased to see the picture of the church that the family attended. "Very pretty," she said.
