My grandmother was Lois Gottschalg McAllister, daughter of Olga Pivniska Gottschlag, seventh child of Matthew and Anna Pivniska. I have her mother's obit and am going through some of her family history. Would love to share info. Until finding this I knew little about her side of the family, she had such a distressing childhood she rarely spoke of them.

Dear Pivniska Cousin, So very happy to hear from you. I don't have a lot of information, but will share what I have. When I was growing up I kept asking my Dad about his family. Because his parents split up when he and his sisters were kids, he didn't know much. The only thing I found about Olga was that she was my grandfather's sister. My Dad only knew about Rose and Mary. I have obits for Matt and Anna and if you give me your address I will make copies of all I have and get them into the mail for you. I live in Chico, Calif. My name is Mary Pivniska Wiebe.. 67 years old. Sincerely, Mary
