This is the first time I've ever done a blog.  I guess this makes me a novice, but I hope this blog is a catalyst for something great.  I would have to give credit to Josh Geppelt.  He is "guilty" for starting this all.  While searching on the internet, Josh came across my sister's Facebook site.  His inquiry to see if we're related, started a list of questions about our family.  As we tried to answer his questions, it became apparent that we need some sort of website to comment on our family and trade info.  I don't know if this is the best way, but its a start.  We invite all to add your comments, and we'll do our part in keeping up with the postings.

I'm excited about connecting the entire Geppelt family here in the states. I will for sure forward this on to all of my "immediate" family.

Looking forward to connecting with all of you.

I am assuming James (in the picture) is Otto's son. Gary,
my husband, is Elmo's 2nd son. Neil died in 2006. Lyn, his sister, lives in Alaska.
We have 4 boys, Andy (29), Josh(28), David (21) and Mark (18).

Elmo's sister, Jeannie, has done some research on the family and I have that if anyone is interested. If you have any info I would appreciate it.

Thanks for setting up this blog. It will be fun getting in touch with all the Geppelts.
