Surnames: Grill Kump
This is my grandfather who immigrated to Michigan, born Mar 17, 1863. He had 3 sisters, Vendeline, Minnie who died in 1941 near Vienna, Veronica born 9/4/1868 & migrated to US & married, Johann born 3/18/1870, and brother Franz. Their parents were Mathias Grill and Veronica Kump. I cannot find any information on these other three children any where nor on my great-grandparents. They were devote Catholics, all six children attended Catholic schools, & spoke English. Vendeline became a teaching nun at Holy Ghost or Spirit Convent [was translated as Villa but think it's Convent]. I cannot find this location either. Somehow, I'd truly like to find this genealogy and have been trying for years. Anyone have a clue where I can look for Mitterdorf, Gottschee, Steiermark, Austria? Getting nothing on them but know the names are RIGHT. Would appreciate help. Thanks.

Hallo.
My name is Vibeke Seldal and I live in Norway.
I have a girl named Vendeline, and I have tried to find out what the name Vendeline meens and where the name comes from.
Do you now something about the name?

Thank you

Do you know if your John Grill married a Sophia Schmuck on Oct 21, 1901 in Cleveland, Ohio? Offspring may have been a son Joseph Grill who may have married Beatrice Ward, and a daughter Cecilia Grill. Sophia Schmuck was also from Gottschee. Thank you.
Kindest regards,
Kathy

Sorry, but my John [Johann]Grill was born on March 18, 1869 and married to Margaret O'Donnell o Nov. 17, 1909 at Guardian Angels Catholic Church in Manistee, Michigan and then moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan. They had four children: James Walter [became a priest], Harriet, Donald and John. I have found them. Was your John Grill born in USA or in Austria? There were other members of the Mitterdorf Grill family migrated to US in the late 1800's as I've discovered - Matthaus [Matthew] born 7/15/1850; Maria Vendeline born 7/1/1852, was nun in Vienna; John of God, also called James born 3/4/1854; John "Paul" born 6/25/1856; Franz born 1/31/1859 who did not leave Austria; Marye aka Minnie, married Stephan Hoppeler - was born 4/19/1861 and died in Feb 1940; Mathias [my grandfather] & his twin, Franz-baptized & died - born 3/20/1864; Veronika Grill 9/4/1866; Alois born 3/8/1867; Johann cited above, Andreas born 6/26/1870 and last Anatasia forn 1/24/1873. These are my grandfather's sibblings and I found most of the kids other than the oldest few in Michigan and Wisconsin, but none in Ohio. Sorry that I couldn't help you more but this was a very interesting family - Grill and very musical, linguistic, kind and hard working - highly educated and I've found registry to nobility in Europe.

Hi Vebeke,

What I've learned about the name Vendeline is Germanic and that it's also used as Evaline, Eva, Eve and is another name for Wilhelmina. [of the Netherlands] born in 1880 and Queen of the Netherlands. It is the female spelling of William - or in German: Wilhelm.

You've given your daughter a beautiful name.

Sorry, not the same Matthias Grill - great-grandfather was a Matthias Grill born 10/25/1820 at Mitterdorf #11, Tschermoschnitz, Gottschee, Austria and married Feb 14, 1849 one Maria Kump forn in Stalldorf, Tschermoschnitz, Gottschee, Austria. My grandfather was one of 13 children, and was born to them on Mar 20, 1864 at Mitterdorf #19, Tschermoschnitz, Gottschee, Austria and who migrated to Michigan in 1880's via Philly, PA. Keep trying as you'll find them, I promise. I found my family and it has been an amazing discovery.

Thanks, Beverly,

And I did and need to supply them with all the information which I've found on my family, which I supplied to another cousin who has much of it up on his site: http://martinancestry.com/getperson.php?personID=I296&tr...

Thanks for letting others know about the link to the Gottschee organization.

My husband's grandfather came from Norway~ Thor Roseland (might have spelled Roiseland) and we would like more info on him. Can you help me at all?
