yes, same family; my parents were both born in antigo, as well as older sisters. my dad was from a family of 8, son of francis xavier and catherine wahleitner gallenberg.

in the late 1800's, my grandfather moved over to antigo from the white lake / kewaunee WI area, dropping the "er" from the name. all the relatives in antigo use 'gallenberg' while the ones to the east stuck with the 'gallenberger' ... we've done SOME research but not nearly enough. plan a trip to munich area this spring to visit the family village.

what's your story?

I've just started the research on my husband';s
side, was there a Leonard Gallenberg?
I'll pin my husband down, and get information
from him. He's not going to believe this!!

if it's the same line, leonard was my dad's youngest brother; he had kids margie (my age), lenny @ 47-48, another boy and a younger girl, lucy, i think.
is that right?

yes, it is small...our family wasn't always the best at staying in touch; my dad has been dead now over 12 years and the last sibling, our aunt Dot who lived in alaska, died last january. i have a cousin who is now in indiana, and we are probably the closest of any, because we had some common friends as teenagers and his ex-wife was a woman we knew first. i couldn't even remember when i saw lenny's family last; i seem to recall, however, when marge married a guy who worked at the same place as me ... he worked in the print shop at the school board... that HAS to be nearly 30 years ago, i'd say. my siblings don't even do a very good job of staying in touch; since our mother died 7 years ago we make sure we see each other at christmas but that's usually it except for 1 sister. do lenny's siblings all see each other?

lenny's family sees each other somewhat regularly
his mother was quite sick this past year and
needed surgery earlier this month. Lenny wondered
is your father, Ed?. He's trying to remember
you. He says this is bringing up memories!.
How much information do you have on the Gallenberg
family?. I just started on it, I always teased Lenny
and told him I was going to trace him all the way back
to Hitler!!!. He teases me about tracing my native american
side back.Lenny is also wondering where you
are living now. You would'nt want to put that
in this message as this is posted for anyone
to read. my e-mail is
