What is your connection to Germany, Austria or Switzerland?

I can trace my roots back to Michelfeld-Baden Germany in 1610. Before that it gets a little murky but we are originally from Kreulingen Switzerland where there is a castle on the shore of Lake Constance which bears our coat of arms. I hope to travel to Germany & Switzerland next year to visit the places we are from.

Do you speak any German?

No, I am listening to a CD in the car but it is not sinking in yet! :-)

What neighborhood or suburb do you live in?

Northwest side of Chicago near Harlem & Irving.

Do you have ideas for events to attend or places to go?

Edelweiss is near where I live and I have only been there once logn ago. From what I remember the food was quite good and there was music. Oktoberfeest would also be fun. I think there is one in Lincoln Square. Maybe a class on learning to make Spaetzle? A German beer tasting? Is there a German history museum in the area?

Introduction

With a maiden name of Seeburger my German heritage is pretty obvious! I am interested in mearning more about German culture and language.
