My ancestors were among the many of immigrants to Milwaukee who spoke German. I've been very lucky in some aspects of my research--namely that my grandmother inherited a plethora of documents, photos, family stories, and other information about our German ancestors. She has since passed these on to me. (Danke schoen, Oma!)
I've also been lucky in connecting with "distant cousins" who have supplied me with additional resources and data for these often elusive ancestors. With this blog, I hope to be able to make additional connections and discover what more about my Milwaukee Germans.
