Carolyn, when my mother was born, she was given a gift from a Siewert.  I
don't know if it was a neighbor or relative.  My Mother's maiden name was
Meier (Meyer in Poland).  Her father was Frederick Meyer born
in Weisendorf, Russia/Poland, on 4 Mar 1886.  His father was Ferdinand
(Ferdynand Jan) Meier born also in Wiesendorf, Russia/Poland on 14 Jun
1859.  His mother was Louisa (Ludwika) Wilhelmina born in Skrzypkowo,
Poland (Near Lipno, Poland) on 19 Jun 1861.  I know nothing of those

However there is a Paul Siewert who lives in the Minneapolis/St Paul area.
 If you think their might be a connection there I could direct you to Paul.
 His wife unfortunately has AD.  She was from the Venturia, ND area.
