My uncle Lawrence Kyriss, deceased, formerly of Troy,MT. told me that, I believe a William Kyriss visited him many years ago, and that Anna Berg was related to him.Lawrence went to call upon this Kyriss, but a neighbor told him that he had moved and didn't know where too, so I decided to see if I could locate this family, and really appreciate you contacting me.My line of Kyriss are descended from Johann Michael Kyriss (1697-1735). I have a Kyriss record from him,and his descendants, researched by Dr. Ernest Seiter and sent to me in 2004, 13 pages.
Can you tell me who your grandfather and great grandfather are??I hope to learn how your line and mine are related.So nice to hear from you.
