Overview

January 15, 2000. The message has been posted on the message board. "Would like to locate other Theinerts..." It would take 8 years to get a response. "I think this is your family!" What happened after that is beyond words!

A piece of our journey is a story about history and how history lives. It takes us to a place where the past becomes a part of you and you become a part of the past, through the bloodline passed down through your ancestors, to you, to us, to many others. This is a story about how two somewhat distant cousins met on the Internet and grew to become more than family. It is a search for the past, for now, and for the future. Inside these pages are our stories and they are your stories. There's something about these people and their lives that still touch us, still mold us and make us who we are today. We might not know which piece of us came from whom exactly, but we are a part of these people and they are a part of us. We are also a part of each other, even as distant family.

This book documents Johann Karl Gottlieb Theunert and Johanna Rosalie Mennig, emigrants from Prussia to the United States. It follows their descendants through 8 generations to the present day. It contains photos of the family, their birth/marriage/death records, the location of their grave stones and photos of their graves (if we have them). It also contains some rather interesting newspaper articles we have found on the family, stories about our journey in researching the Theunert family, as well our best attempt to piece together their immigration story.
