December 8th is a significant date in the family tree.
144 years ago Doris and Ferdinand Hahn were married in the magnificant church in Ranchi.
119 years ago their oldest daughter Louis married Karl Nottrott in the same church.
94 years ago the oldest Nottrott daughter, Marie married Herman Feierabend, in the USA, but they went a year later to India about 400 miles south of Ranchi
My parents were expected to get married in 1946 on the same date, but they just couldn't wait, so they got married in October.
However, all four generations spent a considerable amount of their adult life in India. It all started with Doris and Ferdinand. All married 25 years apart.
I will be traveling and visiting India, with my Father. Our primary destination in India is Ranchi, Jharkhand. We will also visit other towns and cities in that north-eastern region as well as other places in India.
