The Ratzenberger Attic has moved from Ratzenberger.net to Ratzenberger.org as it migrated from Expression Web to WordPress. This new site is now launched although there is still some construction in progress. You will still be able to access The Ratzenberger Attic via Ratzenberger.net, but please plan on switching to Ratzenberger.org as at some point I will likely drop the .net domain. Also, please excuse some inconsistencies as I polish the site.
Why “The Ratzenberger Attic”? It’s amazing the types of things that you find in the attic, old photos, interesting artifacts from bygone days, old programs, yearbooks, etc. My genealogy research was the original impetus for the construction of this web site. Slowly, my love of baseball crept in, mostly focusing on my baseball quest. The website’s name reflects these basic themes that have evolved: genealogy research and the historical recollections of my baseball quest. The kind of things that you might find in an old trunk in your attic.
To see information on my family tree or information on the Ratzenberger surname in general, please go to my Genealogy pages. Maybe you can help me identify the pictured individuals on my Who Am I? page.
If you have an interest in Baseball, you’ll want to check out my Baseball pages (you can also click on the photo at left). My baseball interests and exploits are detailed there, including my Baseball Quest and my favorite team, the Mets. I also have a blog, The Baseball Stadium Connoisseur, where I discuss my travels and baseball related topics that I am interested in.
