The foreward was written by Helen Reisenweber:

"This record of the Hieb families includes the families who have lived during a period of 150 years.  It is especially prepared for the descendants of George J. Hieb, most of  whom are presently living in this year, 1962.

George J. Hieb devoted most of his life to pioneering, as did his father and grandfather before him. Prior to 1812, Weurtemburg, Germany was home to the Hieb families living at that time.

In the year 1812, Adam Hieb and his parents joined the tide of immigration to the region around the Black Sea in Russia, where Adam raised his family. His son, Jacob was the father of 12 children...

When political and social conditions in Russia became to unpleasant for the freedom loving Germans, Jacob Hieb, Sr. decided to engage in a pioneering venture with his family and undertook the long journey to America on May 2, 1874..."
