About me

Location Waukesha, Wisconsin
Introduction I am Kathi Gosz, a retired library director. I am writing an historical novel series about my Rhineland ancestors. I want it to be filled with the details of their daily lives in Germany and later in Wisconsin. I am drawing from genealogical research, from notes taken at workshops, from historical plaques and markers, from conversations, e-mails, and the internet, but especially from local histories written in German which have been accumulated on several trips to Germany. So far I have completed the first book of the "Yesterday's Rhineland" series. It is called "HOUSE OF JOHANN." which was just published on January 17, 2017. This blog offers one way to keep track of the most pertinent information for my writing and to make it useful to other people as well. These posts are copyrighted by the author.
