German immigrant, Christina Stigler, arrived in the United States with her sister in 1874. Other Germans with her surname lived near her, alternating between Cincinnati and Iowa. No United States sources name a town of origin for any of these individuals. A current descendant’s DNA match suggests a district in Bavaria for the Stiglers origins. Emigration records, historic gazetteers, and church records provide indirect evidence to find Christina’s town of birth.
