Even though I have been researching our family's history for quite some time now, it still amazes me that I can learn about someone like Johann Jonas Wolf. He was born 280 years ago and yet, I have learned about this man who is in my direct line, when and where he lived, his military service and his children. At times when I wish I could learn more I sometimes have to sit back and be happy for the things I have learned already.
