@Gwywen: What city will you be living in? Apparently all Denkler's(my family name) come from some small town outside of Münster. I'll have to get the details when I get there. I can't wait. I might even research and write a paper on the history of that area as it pertains to Westphalia and Germania proper. The place is full of Universities. Tons of research material to dig endlessly through.
I'm moving to Bad Bentheim. My roots are from somewhere around Osnabruck, my father has researched our family's genealogy until the late 1600s or something. Looking forward to return to the Heimat
I hope you'll be able to find some links to your roots as well.
