The Diehl Family Gathering Chicago 2009 / 2010

In August 2009 ten (10) Diehl cousins from Sweden visited Chicago. There was a very well attended “Cousins Picnic” at the home of Caron and Bruce Brennan in Villa Park in honor of their visit! Over 50 people were in attendance. Many of the cousins had not met before or had not seen each other for many years.

We had a big family tree poster on the garage wall so we could figure out how everyone was related!


More Visitors!
In April 2010 four cousins from Finland arrived in Chicago and gave us a good reason to have another party! Franciska and Goran Sundholm along with Markku and Tarja Kedrin received a tour of Diehl family locations in Chicago. They also met many US cousins for the first time at a gathering at the home of Donna Primas and Glenn Hill.
