      Hello Gordon,
      I am from germany and live in "Rhineprussia". I am searching for the
      decendents of my ggrand-uncle Peter Kiebel. He emigrated to US in 1857
      and was born 1838. He came from Rhineprussia. Rhineprussia was a part
      of the Kingdom of Prussia. Today Rhineprussia is called
      Rheinland-Pfalz county (Rhine = Rhine river). If you go to:
      you see an old map, 1850, of germany.
      The main city of Rheinland-Pflaz is Mainz with a main univerity.
      I try to find out more about "Doetsch" name.

      Many regards from the sunny Mainz,

      Mechthild Becker
