KALTENBACH - Family Links

Image of the Kaiserstuhl My father Walter Kaltenbach was born in Oberrotweil along with the rest of his family. This is in the Kaiserstuhl region of southwest Germany. He lived most of his life in Edmonton, Alberta, and passed away in 2011.

Siegfried and Doris Kaltenbach and family ran the Vulkanstueble hotel in Achkarren in the Kaiserstuhl. Siegfried Kaltenbach has passed away. Their son Dieter lives in the area, and their son Frank lives in Dresden.

Max and Arline Kaltenbach live in California near San Diego. Their sons Jason and Justin Kaltenbach live near Los Angeles.

Frieda Chies (nee Kaltenbach) and Marcel Chies live in Edmonton, Alberta. Gino Chies and his family live in St. Albert, Alberta.

Otto Calton (nee Kaltenbach) and his children live somewhere in British Columbia. I guess Otto didn't like the Kaltenbach name.

Heiner Kaltenbach and Marlies Kaltenbach have passed away.

Image of Ammerschwir, Alsace Image of Munster, Alsace My late mother Liliane (nee Erb) was born in Illhaeusern in Alsace, France. The Erb family still lives in the area including Illhaeusern, St. Louis, Elsenheim, Riquewhir, and other towns. Here is a short Alsatian story that Lily wrote, an Alsatian Remembrance Day poem that Lily wrote, and a traditional Alsatian comical blessing.

Through the Internet, I met another Kaltenbach who may be a long-lost relative! She is Evelyn Kaltenbach and lives near Whitehorse, Canada. Evelyn works at the Yukon Wildlife Preserve. Evelyn's family comes from the Basel region of Switzerland which is only a few kilometers away from the Kaiserstuhl.
