These pages contain info about the homes and coal mines where the Heck Family lived and worked.  Records for the ship used by the first Heck Family are also here.


On the left is info about Nason and Du Bois.  The family farm is located north of the Nason City Limits.  

The Du Bois Mine attracted a lot of immigrants including the Heck family.  It's real name is the Kuhn Mine.

The graveyards located in Du Bois and Nason contain the remains of some family members.  There are others we have never found.



The Heck family immigrated to the US using the SS Noordland. The ship records are included here.

Germany was run by kings in those days.


Ever wonder what grandma meant when she said you were 2nd cousin once removed with someone you knew.
