Why Does This Blog Exist?

You never know what you'll find here - anything with genealogical or historical value is fair game. This blog will be updated as I clean out my office, go through boxes and piles, or find pertinent items at antique shops. In the meantime, I hope you find something of interest here.

Lutheran Zion’s Church, Green Isle Township, Sibley county, Minnesota


This article comes from an old Lutheran church booklet, listing some of the congregations around Sibley county, Minnesota as well as some of the teachings of Martin Luther.  The cover is missing, so I cannot supply the title, author, publisher or year, but judging by the dates referenced in various articles, it was written about 1917.




F. H. Kolbe, 1872-1879
G. E. Ahner, 1879-1889
W. C. Schilling, 1889-1893
H. Lossner, 1893-1899
K. C. Reuter, since 1900
