You two amaze me. The time and effort you have put into providing the family information to all of us is incredible. I know others have been involved also, but without your ongoing efforts to keep us all in the loop, the reunion would not have happened - and now a website.
I love it. Thanks for all you have done
You are very welcome Ilene! We thought that writing a book and getting it published would be a good way to go. But with all the struggling we did for a short while trying to have tele-conferences and then getting around to doing our parts, it just didn't seem to be working. So, now we decided that maybe this is a better way to get the info out to all who are interested and then you and they can contribute to this site. It will be wonderful! We love you!
WOW!!! I can't believe what I am looking at. What a wonderful thing you and Sherry are doing. I haven't had time to read everything, but I WILL! I just wanted to let you both know how interesting and exciting the site is and let you know how much we appreciate all that you have done.
Love you, Dee
My great grandfather, Abraham Eberhardt Zundel, died March 15, 1925. (not Aug. 18, 1970). This is a fun website. I enjoyed reading about your remodeling and the letters. Who owned the home after Abraham and Abigal? Thanks for the info.
Thank you for pointing out my error on your Great Gandfathers death date. I have fixed it to reflect March 15, 1925.
As to your question about the home, Maria and Steven Louis Zundel owned the home after Abraham and Abigail.
THANK YOU! You are really accepting the responsibility to share the secrets of the Zundel Family home. Just know you are appreciated and an inspiration to those of us who, also, have records we need to organize and share.
I am so impressed by all of your hard work--on this website and the home. I can't wait to read all of the letters and to see what more you come up with. We are all greatly blessed from all you have accomplished! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
Fantastic job! Count me in when you need help. I don't think I told you about my finding a relative of one of Abraham's mission companions. I was reading his missionary journal that Uncle Wayne gave to all of us. In it I kept reading about Baldy Watts. We have friends in our ward named Watts. I asked Steve if he had a relative that was named Baldy Watts. He said It was his great grandfather. Upon further investigation he found that he had served a mission to the Washakie and I believe his journal mentioned Abraham Zundel. Small world.
Wynn and Sherry,
Thank you so much for all your hard work. I am Abraham Eberhart's Grandaughter Toni Ann, daughter of Myron Abbott Zundel. I am so excited to discover this site and more about my Zundel history. My family would LOVE to visit this homesite someday soon if possible. Wynn, are you a brother to Rod and was your grandparents Rosel & Ceila? .... The ones who had a dairy farm, - complete with fresh milk, lots of cows and horses? If so, I have fond memories of visiting my uncle's farm once a year . I'm Myron's youngest daughter, but if you are this 'Wynn', you'd remember by older brothers Mike and Jim and Sisters Vicki and Chris.
Again, thank you both for your amazing service to our family!
I am interested to get information about Theodor Zundel who was an Engineer from Germany. He was in India around I World War & was imprisioned. He worked with weavers (hand - looms) in Mangalore, India.
I am descendant of John Jacob Zundel and have always been moved by Him and feel a connection to him. I read and re-read the family book often. I like the posts on the house of Abraham. I would like to acquire more information about John Jacob if it is available,
I loved seeing the old stonework. That is quite a project Mitch. If we come through this summer on our way to Illinois we will stop by to see your progress.
Mike and Ilene
Hi, Wynn! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to maintain this site. Sarah Emily and Andrew Joseph Josephson are my great-great-grandparents. Lately I have felt an indescribable need to learn about the lives of my ancestors, and I came upon your website tonight and I've been reading and looking at pictures for almost two hours now (it is now 2:30 am.) Thank you so very much!!!
My name is Louis Wynn Zundel and my wife is Sherry F. Zundel.
