My parents were George G. Remm, born Nov. 2, 1901 in Brettach, Germany,and died Feb. 22, 1981 in Peoria, IL, and my mother, Marie A. Schlichtig, born Aug. 20, 1904 in Warthausen, Germany, and died Dec. 1, 2002 in Urbana, IL.
Most of my information about my mother's side of the family came from two sources: the personal records of my Uncle, Franz Schlichtig, shared with me in Warthausen, Germany, and from family records of the Schanz family in Biberach, Germany, on the occasion of a trip I made to Germany with my mother in 1984. I also obtained some information from my cousins, Walter Schlichtig and Fritz Schlichtig.
I was unable to get much information on my father's side of the family from his brother, Alfred Remm, though I did pick up some information from cousins living in Brettach. Most of my information on the Remm side came from records of ny father's sisters, Caroline, Julie, and Hermina, and from Trudy Waldbuesser, wife of Otto Waldbuesser, my father's nephew,and from his Aunt's families, Caroline and Marie Remm, who married Pfledderer brothers, Adam & George, and lived around Frncisville, IN. My father's grandfather (my great grandfather), Georg Gottfried Remm, is actually buried in Francisville, IN. Much of the information on the Pfledderer family came from the research of one of the Pfledderer descendents.
Most of the work of compiling the Remm-Schlichtig Family Tree, has been done since 2004, when I retired, and began to imput the material I had collected years before in Family Tree Maker.
I continue to try to expand the Tree with information of the descendents and their families.
I am happy to respond to anyone who may be related and wishes to share information.
