I would like to better understand my family's history, and their historical context in St. Gallen between the mid-19th to the mid-20th centuries.

The "context" might include: photographs, details about employment, oral history, social network, etc. I would like to hear from living relatives or friends that are interested in corresponding. A list of my great grand father's siblings follows. My hope is: this is a large enough set of names to establish a connection, and/or to begin a conversation. I have the names of earlier generations as well.

My great grandfather, Johann A. Hofstetter, was one of five children. He emigrating from the canton of St. Gallen to the U.S. about 1909. Johann's occupation was stitcher (embroidery). In Jun 1911 he married Rosa Ida Stieger. Rosa might have been born near the city of St. Gallen. The Stieger family is well documented in this forum, from Oberriet.

Embroidery is a theme in my family's story. I'm also researching early embroidery machines and the embroidery industry.
