Hello Rudi, I am may be able to help.I am a great grandson of Guilhelmus Bernardus "Willie" BARTHEL.I am also trying to find more information on this family.The only information I have is from Jacobus down.Perhaps I can assist you with the lower end if you can help me with the families prior to Jacobus. Willie Barthel Married to Mary Simmons, born 8 Dec. 1883 in Slater, Iowa.
Listed are the children of Willie: -Delphine(Son) -Norbert(Son) -Lucille(Daughter) -Paul(Son) My grandfather Married to Viola Finneman, born 11 May 1924, Beach, North Dakota. Paul and Viola's children: Robert (Son) Juliann (Daughter) Marina (Daughter) My mother Darlene (Daughter) Sheryl (Daughter) Ronald (Son) -Sylvester (Son) I am sorry I don't have all the dates of birth/marriage/death.I am currently working on that and will advise. My grandfather can probably help as well.He is still in contact with some of the Barthels in Minnesota and Canada. I am currently living near Kaiserslautern, Germany, stationed here with the USAF.
