Valerie and Debra
Andis research pioneers:
Cheska was incredibly giving and helpful to so many of us.
She took many people under her wing and guided them through so many obstacles
in Andis research. With every new researcher that came along and asked the same questions,
she answered as if it was the first time she'd been asked.
More than one person can credit her with giving them the bug to dig deeper.
We celebrate her spirit and generosity. Wouldn't she love this?
Norm Andis, Darien Andis, Richard Andis:
Their correspondences were so helpful in the early stages of researching Wilhelm and Matthias.
Lois (Andis) Bakewell:
Her published works assisted in the early stages of research with Wilhelm and Matthias.
His "Billy Bowman Bugle" was a published newsletter that helped many of us take great strides in connecting Andis/Bowman families together. He would be thrilled by this website.
