Re: Weidenfeller, Frank 1917 MI
I root from the Weidenfellers in NW Iowa, (Hawarden, Akron, Alton)and don't know where the IA or MI Weidenfellers may connect in the past. However, being a small world, I was temporarily was sent to replace an ailing manager in Grand Rapids in the Mid-1960' and saw a red pick-up with the name "Frank Weidenfeller, Electrician" parked in the downtown area. Looking in the phone book and found a slug of Weidenfellers, much to my surprise, and most seemed to stem from a small community outside of Grand Rapids. I called one listed in the city and had lunch with him. I forget his name, a younger man, but didn't seem too interested in my inquiries, so I dropped the matter at that time.
We are in the midst of Weidenfeller research right now and have a lot of un-connected Weidenfellers. If our branch can help you further or you can enlighten our search, feel free to write me. We have gotten some good solid contacts in response to these message boards.
