I would like to invite you to our upcoming program Monday, July 31 at 7 p.m. at St. Jacob’s Lutheran Church in Anna, Ohio. The program is free and open to the public. While this will mainly focus on the German villages of Scherzheim and Lichtenau and the immigrants that settled in Anna, we will talk about the situation in Baden, Germany during the mid 1800s that led so many to come to America. There were are few families from these towns that settled in Pusheta Township in Auglaize County. VISITING GERMAN COUSIN TO PRESENT TALK ON ANNA’S GERMAN ROOTS ANNA, OH – An ocean apart, distant cousins Jörg Bertsch, of Scherzheim, Germany, and Erin Pence, of Anna, Ohio, are uncovering Anna’s German heritage on both sides of the Atlantic. The two will present a talk on “Anna’s German Roots” during Bertsch’s visit to the area. Bertsch will share information and images about the German villages of Scherzheim and Lichtenau and the circumstances that led so many Germans from the Baden and Alsace regions to immigrate to America. The program is presented by the Anna District Historical Society in partnership with the Shelby County Historical Society and will be held Monday, July 31 at 7 p.m. at St. Jacob’s Lutheran Church in Anna, Ohio. The program is free and open to the public. The presentation will focus on why so many people left the regions of Baden, Germany and Alsace, France during the 1800s to start a new life in America. Beginning in the 1830s, the land surrounding Anna, Ohio became the new home of many German immigrants from the villages of Lichtenau and Scherzheim, Germany. Many area families can trace their roots to these two towns including the surnames Accuntius, Bertsch, Billing, Eisenstein, Finkenbine, Fogt, Hansel, Harman, Heiland, Kah, Knasel, Leiss, Losch, Ludwig, Martz, Meyer, Pfaadt, Schiff, Schilling, Stengel, Rohr, Timeus, Wenger, Woehrle, Zimmer and Zimpfer. The Elsass, Hagelberger, and Altermatt families emigrated from the Alsace Region of France, just across the Rhine River from Lichtenau. These families settled the farmland in Dinsmore and Franklin Township in Shelby County and were founding members of St Jacob’s Lutheran Church in Anna. The two are also looking for photographs of people who would have been born in Scherzheim or Lichtenau, Germany and immigrated to America. Images would likely date from 1850s to about 1900. They are also interested in any family stories about the journey from Germany to Anna or documents that tie the early citizens of Anna to their homeland.
