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.

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!
