Above is a map of the area just south of Darmstadt where much of the German tree comes from. I used our newly found ancestor, Johann Peter Oesterling, to make a pinpont – which the map did automagically on the town of Fränkisch-Crumbach, where Johann Peter Oesterling was twice married, and I think the map is also current to his dates. You can see some of the other town names that are associated with this part of the tree.
You can see Darmstadt in the upper left corner, so if you look at a full map of Germany or Europe, you can get a sense of the area’s placement in the larger scheme of things.
