I was born in Schwäbisch-Hall Germany after WWII. My father was Antonio Jose Cruz, or known as Tony J. Cruz to those who knew him. He enlisted in the U.S. Army just after his 17th birthday where he lived in Walsenberg, Colorado, and later served as an American soldier stationed in Germany during the end of WWII. He married Emma Maria Leykamm, who lived with her family in Schwäbisch-Hall, a small town located in the Kocher river valley in the north-eastern part of the German state of Baden-Württemberg.
In the spirit of collaborating with other genealogists, I enjoy being contacted by cousins. So if you would just like to say "hello," or if you have a question, please feel free to contact me. So far, I've heard from some of my 1st to 28th generations of cousins. What an enjoyable experience!
If I am managing a profile that you would like to manage, please let me know. I am glad to have you involved and more than willing to turn over profile management to you.

Thank you for the Family Star badge. I am always inspired by WikiTreers like yourself! Thank you for sending the link for ancestors from 2,000 years. It has been very informative!

I got notification of your posting. Unfortunately, the relationship goes through the Lyon pedigree. I posted some things about the Lyon pedigree which is considered to be bogus. I recently bought a copy of the Lyon “ genealogy” and it provides no proof whatsoever that the American New England Lyon Family is related to the Scottish Lyon Family. I would not accept any midieval pedigree posted on the internet without a critical review of all the data.

Nice to meet you cousin. I knew I had some French and Netherlands ancestors. Hoping to find more and more as I continue along this journey.

Thank you ever so much for contacting me with this enticing information! After a quick start out the gate in WikiTree, I've taken on a great deal of work and have not delved into the amazing resources available. You've pointed me in an incredible direction. Huge thanks from your 24th cousin (once removed)!
