Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy research on and off since 1994. My research has my family origins back to the late 1600s in Germany and the Alsace region of France. The early 1800s took both sides of the family to the Gluckstal and Kutschurgan colonies in South Russia, now known as Moldova and Ukraine. The late 1800s to early 1900s again brought both sides of the family to North and South Dakota and scattered across the West.

I'm currently located in the Charleston, SC area.

Surnames of interest: Schilling, Martel, Wahl, Keszler, Erck, Schlosser, Thomas.

Particular interest in documenting female ancestors.

Accuracy is important. Please notify me of any corrections that need to be made to any of my memorials, especially those that do not have a photograph and were entered from a database.

Thank you for this. Hopefully, I can someday visit the areas the Russian Germans first settled.

Hello there,

It looks like you inadvertently posted a different Meier tombstone photo on this memorial. Could you please remove it?

Hope you are enjoying your day.

Wondering about the discrepancy of the birth year. Photo indicates 1880, entry, 1889. And, to complicate matters further, his draft registration reads 1882.
