Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Tom,we are related!! My great-great grandfather is the same Johann
Gustav Porath from Wayne County, MI. His son, Herman Wilhelm Julian Porath is my great-grandfather, his son John Porath my grandfather, and my father, Herman John Porath. I have our entire family tree back to Johann, but have nothing on them in Germany. You say they are from Pomerania, where exactly is that. Who are your father and mother, grandparents, etc.? Please respond, thanks!! Jill Porath Iacopelli
