|I am attempting to collect all instances of Behme genealogical information, in order to try and trace back the Behme roots in Germany. So far, the furthest I can trace is Julius; I hope by contacting other Behme researchers I can discover my own ancestors. Please sign the guestbook with the names of the Behme ancestors you are researching, and be aware that Genforum has a Behme Forum to post in also.|
