These are images of land the Schwans family owned in Vreschen-Bokel, Germany. I believe the land came into the family when Diedrich Schwans (my great-great-grandfather) married Anna Aits. Most likely my great-grandfather John Schwans was born here in 1848 and also my grandfather Fred Schwans in 1872. The land remained in the family until sometime after 1881 when it was sold.
These photos were taken in September 2011 on our visit to Germany. Jens and Jane Delger helped us find the parcel of land. Truly one of the highlights of my genealogy life!
