About this Site

Updated 15 September 2012
by Bill Schrier

A major purpose of this website is to document some of the genealogy of our family. There are is a lot of material, which Bill Schrier will add over time. Much of the material is photographs, obituaries and other documentation. One major item missing is family stories and rememberances, which need to be preserved. If you have anything to contribute, including links to existing websites, let Bill Schrier know and he’ll post it on the Genealogy portion of  the site. The Genealogy will include information about these families related to Robert and Merce Schrier of Traer, Iowa: Schriers (from Traer, Iowa), Srajer, Rottinghaus, Thorson, Viehmeyer, Solil, Kadrmas, Boyle and Griffin and perhaps others as the site evolves.
