    Greetings from Florida (USA)

    Hello! My name is Rachel and I'm so happy to have found Skadi! A little about me: I was born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan (USA) and moved to Florida when I was 12-years old. I am of Transylvania Saxon descent and interested in exploring my roots and learning more about the traditions, customs, and the area in which my great-grandparents are from. They emigrated from Hundorf (Hohndorf), Transylvania to the USA in the early 1900's at settled in the Detroit area. Though I never had the chance to meet my great-grandfather before he passed, I do have some vague memories of my great-grandmother. Their son (my grandfather) went to Romania in the 1960's to visit family that was still left behind in the old country, but he had to be met at the border because he was not granted entrance into the country. Due to his ill-health, he was never able to return before he too passed away. Our remaining family has since lost all contact with any remaining relatives. It is my goal to one day be able to visit their homeland and maybe, if I'm very lucky, be able to locate a relative or two. I am very aware that since 1989 many of the Transylvania Saxons have left their homeland for Germany.

    Welcome to Skadi forum, we have a few other Transylvanian Saxons here. Hope you like the forum. Sorry to hear you have lost all contact with your family in Romania, maybe you could re-connect the bonds.

    Welcome.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele
