my husband and I are trying to assess the feasibility of visiting sites with some connection to his father's family, but we don't know a lot at this stage. My father in law would never talk about his family and things to my husband and in any case is now deceased. We would like to find out what we can about the family and pay respects to my husband's grandmothers grave. Of which we only have photos.
Anyway, as we understand it, he was from a town called Hechingen-hohenz. Having googled the location, it appears that this is near or synonymous with the town of Hechingen. Is this right or would Hechingen-hohenz be at quite a different location altogether?
