Zöller/Zeller Reunion Update

I have some sad news to report, based on information from The Courier Mail, Paul who had done so much work on this family and organising the reunion died in October 2013. So if, like me, you were emailing or phoning to no avail this is the explanation.

In respect for his commitment to the family’s history, there has been a decision to go ahead with the reunion. We will all meet, as planned, on Saturday the 16th November 2013 from about 10:30am to approx 2:30pm at Williams Park, Cecil Crescent, Highfields (near Toowoomba).http://www.crowsnest.info/natural-attractions/parks-and-reserves/70-other-highfields-parks. There are several entrances to the park but we will convene near the Cecil Crescent entrance. There will be blue & white balloons and a small Bavarian flag to mark our location.

This is a self-catered event so please bring whatever you require to eat and drink on the day. There are BBQs if people are feeling they would like that option, and a playground for the kids.

I will bring various maps and photos of Dorfprozelten for descendants to inspect so you can see where the distant rellies originated.

Can you please bring: 

  • your family’s food and drink
  • camera if you want to take photos
  • old family photos
  • your family’s stories

We look forward to meeting you there.

I’ve been asked by Paul Davis aka TravelingMan to publicise a reunion of the Zöller/Zeller family descended from Franz Ignaz Zöller and Catherine Beutel. Also descendants of Franz Joseph Xaver Zöller, brother of Ignaz, whose children Joseph, Caroline and Mary Rosalie, all came to Queensland, living in Chinchilla and Toowoomba/Drayton respectively.

Paul is the contact for the reunion so please contact him directly on the email or mobile below. Alternatively you can leave a comment on this post.

We are proposing a get together for all the Zeller descendant of Franz Ignaz & Catherine Zeller and also Franz Johann Xavier Zeller in Australia to be held on Saturday the 16th of November from about 10:30am to approx 2:30pm at Williams Park Cecil Crescent Highfields (near Toowoomba)
We are endeavoring to get access to a nearby Scout Hall in case of rain but the park has some tables wood bbq’s, shade and toilet facilities but would suggest you bringing fold up chairs and a picnic lunch as standard.
I am endeavoring to set a computer and scanner and would be good if you could bring any photographs you may have with you.
Feel free to pass this on to any Zeller descendants
An idea of those who are interested would help also, we will probably ask people to attend with name tags showing who they are descendant from and who they are of course
