Thank you for your email.
My father’ grandmother was a Schreiner in Bukin.
We completely lost touch with that side of the family since World War II.
Schreiner is a very common name. Unless this woman’s ancestors are from Bukin (Batschka)
or from Besseringen (Saarland) it would be very hard to trace.

I noticed that you mentioned a Schreiner family in your email. I once knew an Anne
Schreiner who lived on the south side of Chicago and went to Nortwestern University. Any

I just read an article about one of the towns (Besseringen) in the present day
Saarland where the Schreiner side of my family came from in the early 1700’s.
It has the history from the earliest settlements in the area.
It is under :
DIE GESCHICHTE DES ORTES BESSERINGEN
It is near the border of present day France, Luxemburg and the Saarland ( Germany).
There was a continuous struggle between different countries and nobles. It was invaded,
destroyed, suffered floods and wars and diseases. The borders were moved, reversed, split
and shifted. Those suffering the most were the peasants.
No wonder our ancestors left to escape such unsettling conditions.
