Happy Festivus! (also Lantz family)

First of all, I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Festivus! Time to put up that aluminum pole, air grievances, and of course, the feats of strength.
And if you don't know what Festivus is... well... thats just sad.

I'm going to try and make the Lantz family as brief as possible. hah. thats a good one.

Ok so David Hauck married Anna Lantz

Anna was born in 1809 and her parents were Magdalena Martz (Mertz) and Samuel Lantz

Samuel's parents were Margaretha Sigfried and Henry Lantz

Henry's parents were Anna Kraybill and John Lantz.

John's parents were Anna Milch and John Lantz.

John's mother was Christina. She was born in 1673 and died in 1732.
Anna Milch's parents were John (1686-1713) and Anna (1682-1744)

I have more information on the Martz/ Mertz family as well as the Sigfried and Kraybill family. It will take up another entry though. A bunch go back to the 1600s, and some into the 1500s. Crazy right? The Sigfried family is pretty interesting. If I'm not mistaken one was in the Revolutionary War and recieved a letter from George Washington. Which I think is pretty cool.

Remember everyone, when you're sitting down to dinner tonight air the grievances. Let people know how they've disappointed you in the past year. Enjoy this Festivus for the rest of us!
