Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the 1980's I started researching my Linn ancestors (without benefit of computer) but got busy with my sons' activities and put it on hold. In 1999 a cousin got me involved with my Steinberg ancestors and I have been going full speed ahead ever since.

Upon graduating from the University of Illinois my father obtained employment in the State of Washington, far from any relatives. My ancestors (after entering the USA)settled in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Jersey - I want to experience first hand where and how they lived so I travel the country obtaining data, meeting people, seeing the sights and tramping cemeteries. I missed the "cousin experience" growing up and think that is why I enjoy genealogy so much -- meeting new cousins (who cares if they are 1st or 10th cousins)and sharing our family histories.

I am researching Linn, Gibson, Weir, Scott, Polk, Steinberg, Koerner, Mitten, Bennett, Switzer (Swisher), Slonaker, Shaw, Goff, Townsend, McCarty and Whitehead, Miller, Schroen, Glabe, Schafer/Schaefer/Shafer. I am also reseaching Dishon, Deshon, DeShon, Deschamps and Herrold for my two sons.

RE: Henry and Conrad Kuntz Baptism
Hi Jan - just looking at old emails. Did I send everything you wanted about the Kuntzes? It looks like I did send the baptismal record??? Was there something else? Karen

Do you have his obit? I just ran across it while I was looking in an old newspaper. I saved it in case you want it. Thanks, Pam

Henry Kuntz
Hello,
I found baptismal records for Henry Kuntz and his twin brother, Conrad, both born to Joseph Kuntz and Barbara Meister on 18 May 1861. Baptized 14 Jul 1861. Sponsors Henry Waldschmidt & Conrad Meister. I didn't find a death record for Conrad.
