Mother-in-law here 54 years on green card & we want to travel out of states
Hi, my Germany mother-in-law is here on her green card since she married my father in law 54 years ago. She traveled to Germany twice I believe but all before the passport thing was like it is now. She does not have a passport and we want to travel this summer to Canada, what does she need in order to be able to travel there and in the future?

Thanks so much.

Hello, my mother was born and raised in Nurnburg and moved to Hamilton when married. Her family lived in a large home which I was told turned into a bed and breakfast in the 70's or 80's. I can not find the address but what I do know about it is it was built around 1840. I believe the family was named Schinider. I was told they carried the stone by backpack from the water 2 miles away. It was three stories high and it had a stone gate and guard house. It was beautiful surrounded by forest. My grand parents (Mueller) bought it from them (I think). They also owned a bar Mueller's Café in the early to mid 1900's as I was told. Is there any way you can give me more information on how to locate this building. Thank you, Heidi Keller

Returning to Germany

I have a few questions that I hope you can help me with. I am an American
citizen working for the U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt, Germany. I have
permanent full resident permit status - unlimited, as well as the working
permit. I have worked and lived in Germany my entire life. (My mother was
a German citizen and my father was an American citizen). I pay into the
German social system as required by German law.

My boyfriend is an American citizen who wants to return to Germany with me.
We want to get married in Germany. Here are my questions and concerns:

What is the application called that we would have to apply for, and where do
we apply for it? What visa would he apply for with the intent to get

If we get married here in Ohio, can my boyfriend return to Germany with me before the 90 days period is over?

If we do so, does it still mean he has to return to the United States
within the 90 day period? - I do not know how long it will take to get the
necessary documentation for the German authorities to get married after we
apply for the marriage application there, subsequently I do not know what
visa he would need to apply for.

What kind of documents would he have to submit over there in order for us to
get married?

Would all of his documents have to be translated into the German language?

Approximately what would be the financial cost to us to be married in

Currently we are in Cincinnati, Ohio where I am participating in a
professional development course for the U.S. Consulate, and want to know if
there is anything we can do while still being located here to alleviate any
requirements to be married in Germany, or for my fiancé to get prepared
before we return to Germany.

After marriage, is it so that my then husband would come under my German
health insurance company (DAK), as he would be my husband? I am enrolled
and pay into the german health insurance.

It would be greatly appreciated if you can help us with the above questions.
Thank you very much for your assistance.

Schoene Gruesse,

Jeannette Black
