The Migler Family History

Die Geschichte: Der Familie Mägler

By Peter Goldade

Xlibris Corporation, Philadelphia, PA, 2006, 363 pages, softcover.


Discover the Migler family's journey from the upper region of Elass/Alsace into Czar-controlled Russia, and finally to the prairies and plains of the United States. This book is dedicated to the author's grandparents, Anton and Christina (nee Migler) Sander.

The Migler Family History provides historical information about the remarkable journey and the origin of the Migler family. The book contains family genealogical charges and historical data tracing the author's ancestors' migration from the province of Elsass/Alsace to the Odessa region of South Russia (today near Odessa, Ukraine). Elsass was one of the six Catholic mother colonies of the Kutschurgan District. The other colonies were Baden, Kandel, Mannheim. Selz, and Strassburg.

The extended Migler family in the United States is concentrated in the Rugby/Balta area of Pierce County, north central North Dakota. Large numbers of Miglers who immigrated directly from Germany and Alsace are living in the eastern United States.

Also included in the book is the story of the journey of the author's grandparents migration from Russia to the United States. All the data for the family records was retrieved from authenticated archived documents from Germany, France, Russia, and the United States.

The Migler Family History is a compelling account of the extraordinary individuals and families who shaped the Migler family.

He was employed for thirty-four years by a major U.S. Aerospace firm as a Sales Marketing Manager. Upon his retirement, he began to devote more time to one of his hobbies - genealogy. His quest for knowledge of his family's lineage has spanned many years and nations. In his search for the family roots, his travels have taken him to Germany, France, Ukraine and Russia.
