Hello History Lover

I was born in Watertown, Wisconsin on January 4, 1954, the son of Francis Langer, a Wisconsin dairy-farmer and Gertrud Hofmann, a Swiss immigrant schoolteacher.  I have long been a lover of history and since you are reading this site, I know you are two.

They had are descendants of Matyas Langer Anna Marie Janisch as well…I have Pitterle, Soberle, and Krueizger and more in my lineage. I am forever grateful for the Obit you gave me from Donald Langer as it turned out to be my Great-great-great grandmother Barbara Langer Nee Janisch. I would love to show you my DNA match also with the Roffeis Connection Rosealia Langer Roffeis…a grandmother to Magdalene Maynard.
