Zinnel Family Genealogy Forum
Walter Bernhard Zinnel was my grandfather, I've just gotten into geneology and was excited to see the information posted because that took me much further back than I had previously had - Wilhelm was as far back as I had for the zinnel's but Johanna Bluhm's family I had back to the 1700's.
Grandpa (Walter) was born in 1901, late in the evening of Christmas. He moved from Nebraska to Fort Wayne Indiana and worked there until retiring. He died in 1987 at the age of 85.
Walter married Lena de la Motte, my grandmother, and their daughter was June Delores Zinnel who married Arnold Hartman (mom & dad).
There is a book called "Blue Skies over America" detailing the history of the Bluhm family which includes three or four pages on Johanna and Wilhelm - I can fax you copies if you have any interest.
