Preservings – No 17 – December 2000
by Katharina Kehler Bergen
My father, Peter Schulz Kehler was born in Ebenfeld on January 1, 1896.
Peter was the eighth child in a family of 14 children. Two brothers and one sister predeceased him in infancy. His siblings were born between 1885 -1904. Growing to adulthood were Maria, Jacob, Gerhard, Aron, Johan, then Peter, Susanna, David, Heinrich, Elizabeth and Cornelius. Peter’s birth place was the farm located just north of the Mitchell ball park.
Peter was a small baby weighing a mere three and one-half pounds, so he was told. Incubators were unheard of but with intuition and ingenuity, bricks were warmed in the oven to surround him with warmth. He survived and grew to be a slim, dapper-looking man in his younger years.

Each Wednesday, Syd Reimer and Glen Kehler, two Berliner Kehlers cousins, have met for lunch, usually at Applebee’s. Many Berliners have joined them from time to time.
To fight the mid-winter blues, come join us for lunch with the Berliners. As you well know, this lunch will align itself to be spirited and vocal – if not downright gabby. They’ll never stop talking and when they have nothing more to say they will go on talking for the sheer pleasure of it. The air will turn into a whirlwind of words and laughter. Let us know if you will be coming – email email@example.com
When: Wednesday, January 18, 2017
What time: 11:45am to 1:30pm
Where: Applebee’s Grant Park, 1150 Grant Ave., Winnipeg, R3M 2A6 (Map Link)
Co$t: Your lunch off the menu!
Merry Christmas, Berliners! May you find much joy in celebrating Christ’s birth!
The Chortitz Church Heritage Committee is please to announce the third annual “Christmas at Chortitz”, an evening of German and English Christmas carols. You are invited to attend this festive event in celebration of Christ’s birth, with special music & Friedensfürst.
