  1. Hi Robert, I was recently referred to your GEDCOM posting which includes LENHARDT from the Banat region. My ancestor Theresia KRONBERGER married to John LENHARDT [1/16/1910] in Lefor, North Dakota. I research in the Banat region mostly in the villages of Bogarosch, Bakowa, and Neuseidel. I am interested in your sources for the LENHARDT line.

  2. John — Sorry for not responding earlier, but the holiday craziness is pretty much over now and I’m beginning to catch up with all the correspondence I have been neglecting. Write to me at rshelfer {at} gmail.com and we can converse about Lenhardts in the Banat. I’d love to share information.

  3. Hello Robert,

    I am a descendant (9th generation) of Johann Hermann Lenhardt * 3. martch 1707.
    There are some wrong dates of birth in your genealogical tree because of the different
    data format between the US and Europe we use day-month-year.

    I would like to talk about this in detail. Please write to me at info@a-lenhardt.de

    Kind regards,

    Dan Adrian Lenhardt
    Nürnberg Bavaria Germany
