Wow, I kindof stopped searching last year so I am so glad to hear from you......I passed all my tree info onto my mother, Nancy (Jacobs) Mayer, but I do remember a Paul Sellin in the tree. I have the most prized Sellin artifact in my possesion, and I want to share it with everyone I can. It is a freak of decension that I have it, but when the Sellin's crossed over to America they brought an iron cross that they prayed over for a safe voyage......I have the cross and I understand from my family lore that there is also a bible that accompanied the cross. My great, great, great, ? grandmother Marie Sellin was only 4 years old when they came over. I will forward a picture of the cross as soon as I can figure out how to get your email address beyond the format. I am sure the bible of lore has information in it to trace the tree further.....but nobody can find may be in MN (where my family is from) or possibly Utah (my grandmother thought so, for no factual reason).
