Searching for Our Roots

Dear Friends!

As I research my family history, I am amazed at the stories and the rich history of the church and the community of Wien, and would like very much to preserve and to share the information I discover. Although I have good intentions, you may find that I am very slow in adding information to this site. Please bear with me and I will try to alert you to new information, through notes on the home page.

A Big Thank you to all those who have helped and encouraged the development of this website through kind words, inquiries, contributed information, ideas, and interest of any kind.

I continue to be interested in ideas, information and pictures of Wien, past and present. I am especially interested in posting information (pictures, obituaries, histories) of those early families that came to Wien, the decade in which they came, and their past cities/countries of residence. Stories from Great Grandmas and Grandpa's would be greatly appreciated.

I would be pleased to present links to Family Websites or to Personal Pages that are related to Wien ancestry. Also I am hoping that someone has a photo of the log church built in 1873 and utilized as a school between 1877 and 1897 when the frame school was built in Wien. I believe that some of Wien's residents went to St. Louis in 1901 for the National Eucharistic Congress. I would love to "scan" any memorabilia from that Congress and would like to know if you think someone in your family went. You can email me from this page or from the Home page.

Until next time,

May the Lord Bless You and Keep You!
May the Lord Make His Face to Shine Upon You and Be Gracious to You!
May the Lord Look Upon You Kindly and Give You Peace!
Numbers 7:24-26
