Time Travel and Froehliche Weihnachten

Time travel of sorts. This is my ancestral family (Dad's side) 5 generations ago. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas (Froehliche Weihnachten).

My great great grandfather was a big man, especially for those times. Born in Germany Wilhelm Heinrich Mader, he immigrated to this country when he was young and single. He came alone after the death of his parents. He married Anna Heinlein who was also born in Germany; but immigrated to this country with her parents. They made their home in Chillicothe, Ohio.

I'd love to know what their Christmas's were like so long ago. I know they had a goose pen in their yard and that would have been The Christmas Dinner.

So, from my family to yours.
Merry Christmas

  1. Merry Christmas Sandy! I hope you got to see your daughter this holiday season. Our son and his wife bought a house in St. Louis so I think we will be going there for a few more years! LOL

  2. Congrats on your kids buying the house. That's always exciting. We're enjoying a nice visit with our DD. Got a few more days left. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours as well.

  3. I also Wish them Merry Christmas from the core of my Soul.
