Nicholas m. Mary Flam abt. 1850+. I have their family info on p://

Nicholas had brother's; Simon and John L., all lived in Rosen, MN and surrounding areas. My line lived mainly in Ortonville, MN.

I have no information on Simon or John Karels family, but would love to connect with their descendants to get family history.

My name is Sarah Karels and found your message on here. I know its a little late past your initial post but I thought I would give you a little information.

I am from Ortonville but my dad's side is all from the Rosen area. John L. (Nicholas's brother) would have been my great-great-great grandfather. His son, Simon, married a Marie (Mary) Schnase in 1881. They had twelve kids and their son Frank J. is the next in my line. He married Clara Stoick and they had six children.

Their son, Raymond, is my grandfather. He married Mildred Spors (which is a really big family as well!) and they had twelve children. There son Frank was my dad. He passed away in 1997 from a car accident.

I recently just started with my ancestry within the past 6 months or so. It seems never ending though! I have so many places where the branches could just go on and on! I'm pretty sure I'm related to almost everyone in the Rosen area!

Hi Sarah, I have the family tree updated, but it's not online, I am locked out of every updating that tree.

Your grandfather knows my family, he contacted me 10 yrs ago and then wouldn't answer my emails - maybe you can ask him why! with the work Ray has done on the tree, you don't need to do anything!!

My mom comes up to the Karels reunions when they had them, her Godmother, Adalaide is turning 90-something so she is thinking of coming up for her b-day. If you know everyone in Rosen, then you must know the Amundson's? Harry and his dauther's Chris or Laura? Carla Amundson? Phyllis Stade? My mom's mom was a Karels, mom came out there for a summer as a teen so she knows everyone. Lots of Karels contact me due to the webpage. Anyway, my mom was closest to Lorraine and Francis Hoffman (both Karels girls) in Bellingham, I was out there as a kid and early teen. one of these days I need to get up there while Mom can introduce me, but she is hard to get along with, haha.

anyway, my home email is and I'm on facebook also. thanks for emailing!
