Family of Siebenmorgen
When I got the idea to do this project, it was to be
quite simple with one page containing
name, birth date and death date for Dad and each of his brothers
After I had completed some of these, they looked too
short of information. The whole project
then took on a series of evolutions. The next generation, I included
a photo of each one and I went with that for a complete set. Some
of these I showed to some of the family and asked for comments
One suggestion came from Lynne Richards. That was to
include a Profile of each for the
benefit of the younger generations who never saw or knew their
aunts, uncles, and or grand parents. I thought it was a good idea.
In writing a life story for each, I can write only
what I know and can recall. It is quite
possible that information important and known to others will be
omitted. I would encourage all to add and correct anything that
is incorrect or omitted. In some cases I will use accounts already
written by cousins. This is the case for uncles Louie and Hugo.
These were taken from Hugo's book "Family of Siebenmorgen."
I hope to obtain stories about aunt Emma and aunt Laura from their
Along with the Profile suggestion, I decided to include
with the birth date and death date of
each, the town and state of the birth and death. I have since
thought that the cemetery where each is buried would be a good
addition. For the moment I am not going to initiate another revision
to add that information.
I was ready to complete this project when it occurred
to me that something was missing to tie
all this together. To provide this I must include Grandpa (Guswin)
and Grandma (Anna). Additional Profiles are in the schedule for
the future, and that is to include the married
partners of Dad and his brothers and sisters. To do a good job
of this I need input from all cousins concerned. Your perspective
should be the same as mine, that is information not only of your
parents but also about your aunts and uncles. I hope to issue
this in a few months.
As with any effort with family History or Genealogy,
it is not possible to complete it and this
job is no exception. Any detail or information missing, is not
missing by intent.
I hope this serves some purpose other than occupying
my time when it is cold or raining
I call this my bubble gum project. The longer I chew
it the bigger it gets.
