Pictures of Louis Kindling's home are found at the link below.
The family is well-represented in the local German-American papers. It's even reported that Louis made over 50 trips back to a town near Berlin to visit his mother, the 51st trip when she was 99 years old!

An old question dating back to the 1930s.
Presumably, Goethe Haus' (now Goethe House-Wisconsin) 30 years of residency at the Milwaukee Public Library - Central Branch was supposed to be the answer?
But that residency never produced a single project related to Milwaukee's historic German immigrant community; not with the Milwaukee Public Library, nor with the Milwaukee County Genealogical Society - another group still in residence at the downtown library.
