Using the Blog

Every family member interested in updating this blog is welcomed to participate. Anybody can read and post to the blog without any special invitations and we can have up to 100 authors, so let's make this a place to share information. Just email Barb Landis ( and I'll add you to the "invite" list. You can move information around, add text boxes, edit information, change colors, and add photos. This is for all of us to keep up with the planning.

Anybody planning to stay at the Holly Inn, be sure to make your reservations ASAP. Ask for the Schoen family reunion discount when you reserve. There is a musical event at the inn the weekend of our reunion so it will be busy but the owner assured me she would block rooms for us.


UPDATE: We have the caterer engaged, a tent reserved, and we've started a fund for expenses. Can't wait to see you all!

Mike Here

Hi - Just following Uncle Otto's lead and letting you'all know I'm also hooked up to the blog.

*Mom - can you let the group know if this blog is public or only viewable by invitation? If it's public, I would recommend to the group not publishing your e-mail/contact information or it will be harvested.

Reschedule Date to August 7?

Hi Everybody,

There needs to be a change of date in order to allow for Emily's upcoming wedding. Congratulations, Emily!

The latest discussions point to a late July, early August date. Schools are in session by mid-August for some, so I'm suggesting we re-schedule the Schoen Family Reunion for August 7th, here in Gardners PA.

Who wants to weigh in on this?

Our great / great-great grandpa

Found a bio of Fred Schoen in an old Washtenaw County History. It's been scanned and digitized and is available on line. This is our ancestor!
