My Kranawetter ancestors came from Neukematen, Austria, about 30 miles South of Linz.
Theresia Kranawetter (my great, great grandmother) came to America, about 1853 with her son Joseph Kranawetter (My great grandfather)
Her father was Matthias Kranawetter II and her grandfather was Matthias Kranawetter, Sr.
In 2001, 25 American Kranawetters visited Neukematen and we had a wonderful time and met numerous of our cousins. We hope to return to Austria in 2006.
If anyone thinks they might be relatives of mine, please contact me. We would love to meet you in 2006
