The region had independence for almost a century during which rule was consolidated under one duke and the first known law codes were established.The region was conquered by the Franks once again in the 740s.In 746, all of the nobles of Alammania were invited to a meeting at Cannstatt, where the Frankish king had them arrested, tried for treason, and executed; this eliminated thousands of noblemen of the region and placed the region firmly in the grip of the Frankish monarchy.The Franks had conquered almost all of the western half of continental Europe, excluding present-day Spain and Portugal, by the ninth century and established the Carolingian Empire.A succession crisis led to the division of the empire by three brothers in 843; present-day Alsace became a part of Holy Roman Empire, ca.1600 (by Ssolbergj via Wikimedia Commons; licensed CC-By-SA-3.0) " data-medium-file="https://alsatiansettlersofshelbyandauglaizeohio.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/640px-holy_roman_empire_ca-1600-svg.png?(Photo by Peter 111, via Wikimedia Commons; licensed CC-BY-SA-3.0) Alsace was conquered by Roman troops around 58 BC.
And I asked him to get photos of the one I had spotted that “looked like something.” Andrew got the photos and stated the house was, indeed, a Sears Amsterdam. Last week, I was reviewing all the entries for Sears Houses that are listed on our shared document, and I sorted it by city to have a look at various areas. And……I’ve got more stories to tell you about this house. Auditor’s website, to get basic information on the house, like the year of build, and the sketch of the exterior. With the help of a friend, and my daughter, who is fast becoming a Sears House researcher as well. Now, back to the possible Sears Amsterdam in Delaware. While it now matches up to the Sears catalog listing, it’s not yet documented.
The name Alemmani is also the basis of the word for Germans and Germany in several languages, such as the French words Allemand (for German) and Allemagne (for Germany).
A succession crisis over the heir to the Frankish throne caused several regions of the Frankish kingdom, including Alammania, to declare independence in the seventh century.
In 2014, I made a Sears House hunting trip to Delaware. It was one of those days when my daughter went along as chauffeur, so I could spend my time looking at houses, and not worry about traffic. A Google document created by another Sears House researcher, Lara Solonickne, that is shared among a select few, to help us keep track of all the houses we are finding in various parts of the country.
I knew there would be houses to be found, as I had spotted several Sears kits previously when passing through the area with my husband on our way to someplace else. It was easy for me to enter the ones I had found here in Springfield, my hometown.
