1. Jamie,
    unofficially—meaning I haven’t proved the relationships myself—I can draw my Wieder line back to the immigrant Johan Adam Wieder (1721—1798).

    My Wieders were not Jewish, however. In the records I have, they are consistently of the Lutheran or German Reformed church, both Protestant Christian churches.


  2. Hi, my name us Jamie (Wieder) Sievers. My great grandfather was also Edwin Wieder from PA. Only he was an orphan so any information beyond that we do not have. How far back are you able to draw your family tree and the origin of Wieder? I am especially interested in the Jewish aspect of it.

What do you think?
