Rieck Family Genealogy Forum
My parents were born in Winona, but we've always pronounced it "reek", so I guess we aren't name doubles (that hyphenated name of mine would've ended it anyway). I'm a Christine, actually, but usually go by Chris.
My Great-Grandfather Wilhelm RIECK was born in 1836 in Pommern and came to the USA in 1865. There was a story about one of a pair of twins (perhaps my grandfather's twin) being scalded & dying. My brother Ron has been chasing down the geneology & has all the details; have you corresponded with him at all? If not, I can put you in touch with him.
My own Dad was born in Winona in 1916 and died last April. He and my mother moved to Milwaukee in 1940 & there are five of us 'kids'.
