Sourcerers' Challenge Wise Owl Blue Skies Milestone for 50 sourced profiles
Patricia Roche reached the Blue Skies milestone by sourcing 50 profiles in the September 2023 Sourcerers Project Sourcerers' Challenge.
I saw in my Wiki Genealogy Feed you updated a profile for George Reichert (1883-1955) who was born in Jozefsburg. Jozefsburg was a model community for the Josephine Colonization.

My own ancestors include Reicherts who were from a different Josephine village. Check out my profile for Margarete (Reichert) Członka (abt.1805-aft.1859). Her parents Johann and Katharine Reichert, were likely settlers in Galicia from the Palatinate.

If you go back another 100 years in Jozefsburg, you will likely find more Reicherts!

Good luck.

Patricia, Martin Skillingstad was my uncle. Ole Skillingstad was married to my Grandmother Lorena (Lund) Skillingstad. My mother Was Maxine Peters Skillingstad McMillen. I have a Photo of Uncle Martin in San Francisco, I believe sometime around 1946. I’m 87 years old so dates really don’t mean that much to me. 🤣 I know we were living on 46th avenue when uncle Martin came to visit and that home was purchased in 1945. Any information you would want to share would be available. If you are interested, I can scan the photo and send it to you. I’m living in a little town in North Eastern Arizona. Pinetop

Hello William, Would be grateful for any photos and information about Martin you can share. He seems to have vanished from the family other than his close relationship with Ole and Lorena. I have childhood memories of visits with Ole and Lorena, when they lived in Woodland CA but don't think I ever met Martin.

I can add you as profile manager for the profiles I have created for Ole and Lorena if you would like. Please feel free to add information to any of the profiles for the family.
