Tommy Schiller Myerchin's Baby Book



When Thomas Schiller Myerchin was born on February 5, 1937, Laura Schiller Myerchin, his mother, created a baby book to celebrate the event. The book became a simple synopsis of our family history, important relatives, meaningful events, as well as an outline of the family genealogy. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, only one book was created. The four other siblings, Philip Rial, John Hector, William Joseph, and Catherine Marsha are thankful that the book was perserved and is presented here.

Notes: About Cemerna or Cemerne and 1878 or 1883

In the Tommy Myerchin Baby Book, Cemerna is listed as the village from which the John M Myerchin, Sr family emigrated in 1878. Cemerne with an 'e' and not an 'a' is the correct spelling. This is no Cemerna, and the village of Cemerne is very close to Janovik, the home of the Vanyos. The Myerchins and the Vanyos would have been very familiar with each other's village.

The John M Myerchin Sr Family came to the United States in early 1983 and not 1878. The Myerchin family worked in the anthracite coal mines for seven years. Paul Myerchin, their son was born in the United States on December 31, 1883. He was listed as being seven (7) years old when they moved to Tabor, MN.
