What part of Germany are located? I have a son stationed at Stuttgart he is married to a local German girl and has two kids.My Great-great-great-grandfather Schmidt immigrated from Germany in the mid-1800's and brought black German Bees with him to the USA.That makes me a 6th generation beekeeper in the States and I don't know how many generations were beekeepers back in Germany.I have 55 years of personal experience as of May of this year.Always glad to see a new beekeeper.
