I have a German bible with the family of Abraham Siemens in the register. The information is written in German and contains the following names; Margaretha Siemens with a date Jan. 14, 1893 Newton Kansas, Helena Siemens Mt. Lake, Minnesota, Maria ( Janzen )Siemens with the dates 1863 and Jan. 30, 1889 Mt. Lake, Minnesota, Heinrich Siemens with the date Jan. 30, 1889 Mt. Lake, Minnesota, Abram/Abraham Siemens Mar. (Miri)15, 1884 and July 21st, 1861. I can make out also the name Janzen. I don't know if the dates are deaths or births, I am looking for someone to translate it for me. The Bible was given to my grandmother ( Sarah [ Ratzlaff ]Friesen ) by one of her friends ( or relative) in Minot, North Dakota area or could be from Mt. Lake, Minnesota. If anyone has any information on this family, I would appreciate your help in finding out if this family is related to the Ratzlaff family. Thanks!
