    My great great grandpa was from Germany.

    I'm almost done with our family tree and found out the small town of Schlechtingen is/was named after our family :) I just can't find any information on the town to really verify but would love to hear stories of Germany and people's family.

    How do Germans who live in

    and are citizens of Germany feel about Merkel turning the country into a Muslim colony? Germany is not a small country, but it's too small to absorb a million Muslim immigrants in just one year without being permanently denatured. Look at http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015...
