In the 1850’s one branch of the Moschel family emigrated from Webenheim, Germany, to America. In 2001 a Webenheim resident found the website of a distant American cousin and emailed, “We are family.” That email introduction led to American and German cousins working together to uncover the family history through five centuries, two continents, and two world wars. This is the story of that history and of the newfound relationships which culminated in a reunion in Germany after 150 years of separation between the families.
