January 1, 2006:
We received some sad news. Over the holidays, Norman Krischke passed away. If you have navigated around this website, you will know that most of our material was derived from Mr. Krischke’s personal research into the Noel’s of Newfoundland, and that our Noel genealogical links would have been impossible without his contributions. Anyone who ever had the opportunity to read his report, Gather Up All The Noels, came away extremely impressed.
We were able to get a copy of Mr. Krischke’s obituary from the online edition ofThe Victoria Advocate (Victoria, Texas, USA). Click here (pdf document) to view the obit.
Memorial donations may be sent to the Schulenburg Public Library Fund. Follow these links for more information:
