In Reply to: Re: Whats in the name? by Dale Meisenheimer of 219

The name comes from the town of Meisenheim on the river Glan. It is in the Hunsruck part of the Pflaz. about 55 miles west of Frankfurt. A Meisenheimer is a person from the township of Meisenheim. The name appeared sometime after 1605 in the village of Waldalgsheim. This was the father of Nicholas Meisenheimer from whom all Meisenheimers are descended. I discovered this on my trip to Deutschland in Sept 99.
Herr Schramm of Waldalgsheim has done a lot of research about the family and has quite a descendant list, and says all of us can be traced back to Nicholas.
