Philip and Mary Kathleen Hasheider of Sauk City have been awarded the 2013 Genealogy/Family History Book Award for their family history, "The Michael and Caroline Bremel Family of Wisconsin: Their Ancestors and Descendants, 1779-2012."

About the Award

The award is given to the author of a genealogy book that best documents the history of a Wisconsin family and, in the opinion of the judges, made the most valuable contribution to public understanding of Wisconsin's past during the preceding calendar year. The award is presented in conjunction with the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society.

About the Book

"The Michael and Caroline Bremel Family of Wisconsin" tells the history and genealogy of a German-American family. The family lived in Posen, Germany, in the late 18th century and moved to Wisconsin in the mid-19th century. The descendants of the Bremels traced the history of the family from the mid-19th century to the present. The volume is a thoroughly documented, well-illustrated and carefully indexed account of a prototypical Wisconsin family.

A panel of judges from the Wisconsin Historical Society recommended the authors receive the award. The Wisconsin Historical Society's Board of Curators approved the 2013 Genealogy/Family History Book Award.
