Hello to everyone who is reading this. My mother, Florence Louise Nienhaus, was born here in the UK in 1896 and had many relatives across Europe. I'd love to be able to establish contact with any members of her family.

Hi Diana,
My Grandmother's maiden-name was Nienhaus. She lived in North-Western Germany. She had several sisters and brothers of which many died in WW II. The last remaining sister died earlier this year. There are children and grandchildren in and around a little town called Vreden (http://www.vreden.de)

Birgit hello,

I was delighted to get your message the other day and to know that there are still some Nienhauses (or should I say Nienhaüser!) in Germany - I feared that, when my mother died, in 1967, and then my unmarried cousin in 1985, the family might have died out. I shall have to do lots more searching and try and find out more from Vreden. Thank you so very much for getting in touch.

I hope to hear from you again soon. Your English seems perfect - I wish my German were!

Alles gute,

Diana.

Birgit hello,

I was delighted to find your message when I opened up, and to know that there are still some Nienhauses ( or should I say Nienhaüser)in Germany - I thought we had come to the end of the line when my mother died in 1969 and my cousin (who was unmarried) in 1985.
It is good to know that I still have some family in Europe and I shall try and find out more about Vreden - First of all, to the map.

Your English is very good - I wish my German were.

It would be good to hear from you again.

Alles gute,

Diana.

My Grandfather was Godfrey Nienhaus who was married to Theresa Eyrich. My Father was William Nienhaus. He passed away in 1980. I don't speak German so hopefully you will be able to let me know if there are any descendents of Godfrey Nienhaus.

I forgot to say in my last e-mail that I live on a farm near Winnebago, Minnesota.
