Meeting the Muesse Family
A highlight of Marie’s third trip to Germany was meeting more Muesse cousins in Weidenhausen, which is celebrating its 700th birthday all during the year. Today’s events started with a special church service followed by a visit to the home of Heinrich Muesse and his family.
We met up with the Muesse family later at the party held on the festival grounds. Photos from that party to come a bit later, after we recover!

It was a wonderful day in Weidenhausen for the 700 year Celebration, and Sunday began with a church service. I had not yet the Muesses, but as I came into the church I grabbed a seat beside a nice-looking couple. After the service, I learned I had sat beside Gerd and Claudia Muesse, my cousins ! The Muesse family was as excited to meet me as I was to meet them. Our families trace back 350 years ago to the same farm in Rinthe, Grosshans, which burned down and no longer exists.
The Muesses are good friend of Herr Imhof, who was kind enough to introduce us.
