In the Footsteps of My Ancestors is my look into one story and my making another. The first is the story of the von Rosenberg family's immigration to Texas, why they left East Prussia, why they chose Texas, and some of what has happened since they made that choice. The second is the story of my attempt at following the route they took from the port in Galveston to their first home at Nassau in Fayette County, my discovery of similarities which go beyond sharing a name, and my seeing again or for the first time some of the others who share this ancestry.
