I spent time in my ancestral Wisconsin town the last couple days. I have 3 sides that have or had over a 100 yrs each in the town of Lyndon Station, dating back to 1881 with the Wentland/Wendland families, then the Rettammel and finally Podrasky families.
Even my other surname connection-Maas lived in the town for over 30 yrs. So I guess I have ties to this small town. Though I was not really raised there, I have spent every year of my life visiting or spending weeks as a kid there during the summer living with Grandparents, Great Aunt’s and Uncle’s. It is where the seeds and interest in Genealogy all began over 40 years ago.
