April:

I think the name of the place you are mentioning is Zweibrücken (=ZZ-VEYE-brew-ken) which is just east of Saarbrücken on the French border with Germany.

Brücken just means "bridges", so Zweibrücken means "two bridges".

German Genealogy Home Page - http://www.rootsweb.com/~wggerman/ - Click on map of Germany’s 16 Bundesländer (states) and German areas in 7 other countries. Find that elusive ancestor in Germany - a good German research site

If you do not know exactly which state your German ancestors came from, but you know the town or city name, try GEOserv - http://www.genealogy.net/gene/www/abt/geoserv.html - 5000 listings of German cities/towns

European Countries - http://s700.uminho.pt/europa.html - click on map of most countries in Europe (including the Balkans) - Find out a bit more about your ancestor's country of origin.
