If we go far enough back, there's no escaping it, if nothing else just by comparing the powers of two with the world population.
I seem to have a lot of ancestors named Baasch in Schleswig for one thing, but that was sort of Denmark half of the time. But also a bunch in Schwarzwald named Beha. Then again, the Funch'es might well come from there too, I haven't tracked them down yet.

The Funch's were probably Frisian islanders who got tired of fish and moved to the mainland... ;-)
I've got my ancestors back to 1500 also. Some guy named John Starr in a fishing village in Devonshire; the village is named "Beer", honest! I can actually claim to be descended from Beer...

I thought, if my family's from Germany, then maybe they were Germs. Well, that would be WAY back.
I'd like to descend from some alcoholic beverage too.

It is also interesting how the flavor of things change when people move to different cultures. Like, I was tracing my German ancestors with the name Baasch, for a couple of hundred years, and then several branches of them immigrated to the US. So, whereas before they had (to me) stuffy-sounding names like Josias Hinrich and Friederike Dorothea, same as all their ancestors, they suddenly become "Uncle John and Aunt Freda". Just within the last couple of days I made contact with some far off 4th cousins of mine in the U.S., descendents of my great-grandfather's brothers who emmigrated from Germany around 1900 or so. And their memories and different version of things suddenly brought things to life in a new way.

Another one of your distant cousins here. I assume the 4th cousin you're referring to is Cami, who is my 2nd cousin.
Anyway, it's exciting to find long lost relatives. You do know you were lost, don't you? For some reason it was thought your branch was in South America, don't ask me why. I'll also assume that Cami will fill you in on what you want to know, (not sure just how MUCH you want to know either,) but I probably have some pictures that she wouldn't have and maybe more info.
One question puzzles us. Why didn't John (that's what Johann translates to here,) know about his other siblings? They were all born well before he went to Denmark, any ideas? His brother, my Grandpa Dave (Detlef) was a stubborn ornery German who never seemed to want to talk about such things so maybe they all were like that! Fortunately my sister once did a genealogy thing for school and she got him to open up some and even produced the afore mentioned pictures. Another brother, Henry, lived in the next town. I never even knew what the relationship was till a few years ago.

Ha, that's great. Well, hello cousin!
I'm glad we found each other again, even though I didn't even know you existed. I only got into genealogy a month or two ago, and Johann Baasch's family was a bit of a mystery, and we only had his father's name, and a vague rumour about him looking different from his siblings, and maybe he was adopted. But we didn't even know the names of his siblings.
It was my impression that Johann talked very little about his family. At least there was nothing much that his kids passed on. So I'm not sure if he also just was a stubborn old German who didn't feel like talking, or if he really wasn't in touch with them.
Johann was a stern man, who beat his kids, like his dad beat him. I could well imagine there wasn't particularly good feelings between them. Johann was born several years before the others. Actually he was born 4 years before the parents were married, although the birth records indicate that they were indeed his parents. And the two sisters who were twins were born shortly after they were married. So, Johann was somewhat older than the rest, and maybe felt isolated, or was treated worse because he was born outside of marriage, I don't know.
