Please join me as I present a small part of my most favorite photos in the gallery. These pictures are from visits to my ancestral villages in Germany, the Province of Alsace, and Ukraine. In taking these pictures, I tried to capture the undeniable beauty of these quaint picturesque villages. Each of these visits provided a glimpse of the life into our ancestors. Additionally, the period of my visits allowed me to immerse myself into the local culture. The most gratifying aspect of my visits to the villages was realizing that I was able to walk the same streets and view some of the same sites that my ancestors had experienced centuries before.
