MessageThis is a wonderful, informative site and commend all involved for putting this site together! My G-G grandparents were Johann Carl Bernstein & Magdalena Jeremias Bernstein, who brought their family from Lehn, Germany in 1869 on the ship "Bark Galveston" and settled in Serbin, TX. Johann's parents were Christian Bernstein & Maria Zieschang Bernstein in Gross Kunitz, Germany.
I'd love to find out who Christian's ancestors were, but it's difficulty. Any suggestions to point me in the right direction would be appreciated. If any of you are also descedants of this family, I'd like to hear from you at

MessageMy wife Charlotte Stempel Byrd is the 3G granddaughter of Christian Wilhelm Stempel who is believed to be the person who began the Iowa Wendish migration from Drachhausen in 1847 to Fort Madison, Iowa. We have been corresponding with Cathy Petersen for several years. She is an amazing resource. Currently we have several of Christian Wilhelm Stempel's original letters from before and after the immigration being reviewed for translation. Any information on the Stempel family before and after this time period would be appreciated especially going further back into history.
