Donna Budzier is the sole author of The Glied(t)s 1723-1993 and Poeppelmeiers 1804-1993. When Donna was asked for some biographical information for an author's page, she replied, "Nope, my whole life is in the book." I was finally able to get a promise of a picture (which has never materialized) and some remarks from Donna which I have summarized below. (tg)
Donna has done research on the Doennigs back to 1798. She published the Doennig Family Book in 1983 and updated it in 1986. She also has information on the Greifes, Lampes, Oexemanns, Osterlohs, Hoemanns, Panhorsts, Kasiers, etc. Donna used the Family History Center Personal Ancestorial File (PAF) for her work.
Dorene Kaiser has published a book on the Kaiser Family. The information that Donna provided on the Kaisers was researched by herself using the Bramsche Ev Church Records as well as a German house history. Donna has sent a copy of the Gliedt/Poeppelmeier Book to the Family History Center in Salt Lake City.
Donna has also submitted all the information on the German Gliedts, Poeppelmeiers, Breders, Greifes, Westerwelles, Giesselmanns to the Family History Center Ancestral File.
If you are interested in any information on any on the various family lines please contact Terry Gliedt and he will forward your request to Donna.
