  • Dear Dr. Splittgerber,
    My name is Robert Norman Splittgerber. Out of curiosity I’d signed into Acadamedia to see what other Splittgerbers out there might be up to. And so I discovered you. There may be a family history going back to the late 1800s connecting us. My Great Grandfather Otto had relatives who settled in the middle northern states. Otto & family lived in Wisconsin. He died in an industrial accident. He left three children: Meta, Helene and Alfred, my Grandfather. I know through my Uncle Robert that there are Splittgerbers scattered around, and I would be interested in exploring connections. If it isn’t a bother, kindly e-mail me at And congratulations on your accomplishments. BTW, my Dad studied violin at UN, and I was born in Seward.
