About me

Location Waukesha, Wisconsin
Introduction I am Kathi Gosz, a retired library director. I have written a historical novel, HOUSE OF JOHANN, about my Rhineland ancestors. I wanted it to be filled with the details of their daily lives in Germany. I draw from genealogical research and from local histories written in German which have been accumulated on several trips to Germany. This blog offers a way to keep track of the most pertinent information and to make it useful to other people as well.
