It is nice to hear from someone on my Mom's side.
Have you ran into Steve Shaluta on this website?
He has a lot of information too about my Grandma Hickel's Mom and her family.
Feel free to check out my tree on my Mom's side which would be Hickel too. What information I have came from my Mom - she had written down a little about each of Grandpa Hickel's siblings. I find that very interesting it was almost like going back in time. Do you happen to know about the wherabouts of any your cousins. My Mom and her three brothers would be your cousins right?! Where do you live? Hope to hear back from you my Mom will be very happy to know that she has had heard from a cousin!
