Carol's picture

Hi, Wow great site . I love it...Im Carol (Bowers) Cairns.My family are from upper Michigan. A couple of years ago my aunt gave me this book by the name A HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF HANS BAUER, BOWER, BOWERS AND HIS DESENDANTS. The dates started 1670 to about 1950's. Lot's of History starting from BAUER's immigrants from Switzerland to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Kansas And Iowa. I have a few pictures. It also tells of how the name BAUER was changed thru the years to BOWERS. Anyone interested please contacted me
Would love to hear from anyone that may have same blood line or is interested in the book.............
