First generation of families born in the United States.

I was born in 1932, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Alex and Mollie Kaiser, both of whom were born in Grimm, Saratov, Russia. They came to the United States in the early 1900s and married in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. My brother and I grew up in Milwaukee, but spent a lot of time in Fond du Lac with my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. When I was in high school, we moved to the St. Louis area for a year, but then we moved back to Milwaukee.

My father was a salesman for Rueping Leather Company for many years, and when he retired from there, he opened his own shoe store. I used to help him in the store on weekends and during vacations.

I went to Wheaton College in Illinois and graduated in 1955. After a couple of year teaching, my best friend and I decided to move to California. I taught in the Los Angeles School District for 1 1/2 years before I married my husband, Clay T. Miller Miller-33356, and moved to Orange County where I taught school for a number of years.

We raised two girls who are now grown and have children of their own. I am working with one of my daughters to document everything I can about my family and the time they spent in Grimm, Russia.

Hi Ruth,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Hi Ruth,

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used.

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.

Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
