Cheryl - as for AHSGR - I am not a member. I never deal with them directly. I tried a long time ago and I got absolutely nowhere. I work with Doris and we help each other. Right now the translating on the 1858 Kolb census is in corroboration with Brent Mai, who is going to publish a book on it. He is involved in setting up a Germans from Russia Museum in Portland. I can probably help you faster than Doris can - she helps a lot of people and is on call for help constantly - I'm not. ... Judi

Hi again - my son Michael did all the research on the Christel-Manweiler families in Tacoma. He isn't helping me anymore because he is knee-deep in engineering/math studies right now. I have all the Manweiler and Christel cemetery photos and obits, but I need to know who your parents are in order to know how I can help with more information.
I met Lydia Dermer Christel in i956 - I was going to Stadium HS at the time, and my mother was quilting two quilts for my sister and I. She had a group of ladies from the old neighborhood over to help her - my Grandma (Anna Elisabeth Kanzler) Adler, Grandma (Anna Elisabeth Adler) Miller, Mrs. Fred (Amalia Miller) Cook, Mrs. Georg (Anna Marie Adler) Koch, Mrs. Henry (Emma Koch) Miller, Mrs. Georg (Maria Elisabeth Kanzler) Lesser, and Mrs. Adam (Lydia Dermer) Christel. I learned to quilt from these ladies - it was really a lot of fun.
I am the daughter of Fred A. Adler and Mildred Miller - Judith Alice, born 4 Mar 1940. Right now I am doing translating for the AHSGR for the Kolb Village - births, deaths, marriages, and currently the 1858 Census. I have lots of information available to me in actual documents. I work directly with Doris Evans, Kolb/Frank Village coordinator and 4th cousin on the Adler side.
Just let me know how I can help you, and maybe you could fill me in on the holes in my Christel research. Michael and I have been researching the Germans from the old neighborhood for 10+ years...Judi

If this is your family, you will find their son Carl Schreiner is married to Amalia (Molly) Adler. She is my dad's sister. This family also lived across the alley from my grandparents, and when Harold Schreiner was wandering the neighborhood, Grandma would feed him and provide him with some newer clothes. I know this family quite well.
