With just six days to go until the release-signing party, it’s time to blow the horn for my friend Linda Gurney of Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans. She’s been promoting my party with almost as much gusto as she plays the piano and clarinet as a professional musician.
And why not? Linda, whose maiden name is the very German-sounding Seiferth poured just as much enthusiasm into the pursuit of her past. She’s one of four area residents who are studying their German ancestry who are profiled in a piece that appears on page 203. The picture of the Neslage sisters at right, which appears with the article, shows a few of her ancestors.
You’ll meet Linda if you come to the release-signing party from 2-5 p.m. this Sunday, Sept. 16, at Al Smith’s Feasting Fox Restaurant, 4200 S. Grand Blvd., St. Louis.
