Hi Julius,


Thank you for posting.👍


As for the Umlaute: I have an iPhone and when

I tap on the vowels and keep my finger on it, a list

of different versions of that same vowel appears, including

the German Umlaut.


If you have any questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

This is a great list. While I know some of the basic family names getting all of the relative relationship names will be indispensable. BTW, my schwiegermutter is a wonderful and loving woman. Please consider putting a positive sentence in for this vocabulary word.

Tschüss
