Obama's German Roots?!

2021/08/04 Happy Birthday BARACK OBAMA! 60 years ago today, former US president Barack Obama was born on Honolulu, Hawaii. Barack Obama is said to have German ancestors: Johann Conrad Wölflin, who was born on 29 July 1729 in Besigheim (Swabia) and emigrated to the USA in 1750, was traced as an ancestor of Obama some years ago.

Wölflin’s baptism entry can be found in the baptism register of Besigheim:
