Zeiler Family Tree
Posted by: Millie Zeiler Date: January 02, 2000 at 18:15:49
  of 85

I don't think I'm much help here. I'm looking around for information myself. My father's name is John Zeiler. He is the youngest son of Nicholas Zeiler of Germany/Russia. My father was born October 5, 1920 in Onoway, Alberta, Canada. His father came to Canada at the turn of the 20th Century with his family. I believe there were 3 or 4 brothers at the time that came to Canada/USA. One stayed in Canada (my grandfather) while the others went to the USA. I don't know how accurate this story is, but this is what I remember of my conversations with my own father when I was just a kid. My grandfather died when I was very young. (I think I was only 3 when he died.) My own father passed away July 14, 1993 at the age of 72. My father had 2 brothers, Alex Zeiler and Henry Zeiler. Henry was killed in World War 2, and Alex died at age 73 I believe in 1973. I am looking around for people who might have information on Henry Zeiler. I'll see if I can gather more information on this in the future. I do know that I have Zeiler relations in Kansas and in Detroit, but I've never met them, nor do I know who they are.
