COMING TO AMERICA

ReadyForAdventure.jpg

This article appeared in the February/March 2013 issue of Reminisce on page 34.  It was one of several articles submitted by readers as their story "Coming to America".  Anna (Schmid) Cunningham immigrated from Erding, Bavaria, Germany and presently lives in the Lone Rock area.  Listed below are the ancestors of Anna.  Notice the familiar surnames and small towns mostly from the district of Waldmünchen, where most of the people in and around the Plain, WI also trace their ancestors.  If you are interested in whether you can trace your relatives to her ancestors, the DVD "Genealogies of Families that Immigrated to Sauk County, WI from Bavaria, Germany" may be of some help.  You can even find a map on the DVD showing most of the small towns of our ancestors in the district of Waldmünchen.  The OFTHS is handling the sales of the this DVD.  You can find more information on this DVD at this website.
