Calling All Klopfensteins

And, speaking of Allen County, Indiana, a worldwide reunion of the descendants of Elmer and Lois Klopfenstein and allied families (including other Klopfenstein branches) is set for 20-21 June in tiny Grabill, Indiana, ten miles northeast of Fort Wayne and about the same distance west of the Ohio state line. "Not just a family meal" but a "planned program" is promised.

I'm impressed that Rootsweb's Worldconnect project shows 9495 entries under the surname. Even allowing for many duplications, there surely could be enough Ks around to multiply the normal population of Grabill by several times.
