From the Desk of President Barack Obama

7-7-2016 letter from Barack Obama to Schmidt Reunion

The first of our Iowan Schmidts to come to America arrived 135 years ago. Our Schmidts may not have had a reunion every single year since 1881, however family has always been the bond that binds us together. Though we have branched out to eighth, ninth, and even tenth cousins, we share a love, respect, and generosity toward one another as if we were all siblings. Thank you to the President of the United States for recognizing us and our reunion!
