Special Delivery!

Today, Ryan is the lead in the Duvall Church Christmas program. So Ryan (and Josh and Katelyn) go to school here, but this is not the school program (which was a week ago), this is the Sunday School program. Ryan was hand-picked to be the lead in the play, which is pretty cool. So he performs today at the 9:30 and 11am services, both of which we'll be attending.

I was also a Magi in the 1st annual drive-thru Live Nativity scene down at the church on Friday night. Suzi helped with the stage makeup for all of actors. There were about 30 people in about six different scenes from the Christmas story. There were also two live camels, some goats, donkeys, mules, etc to round it out. About 300 cars came through that night, which is pretty good on a Friday night for a little town like Duvall. I'll try to get some pictures up later...

I am the oldest sibling of a Zube clan from Chicago. Is Zube really your last name? What nationality? There are 9 of us with the last name Zube, 7 female, 2 guys. We have 18 2nd generational kids, but only 1 with a Zube last name. Hope I am not intruding on your personal turf.

No, Zuber is my last name, but zuber.com was taken the many years ago I got a domain name. Zube is just my nickname :)

bye,bye,ZUBER, not a true ZUBE. I am telling all my sisters and brothers on you, but good luck to you, we all need whatever we can get....by the way, are you a Steelers fan? That is all that counts now. Guess you know I live in Pittsburgh. Love ya anyhow, anyone who calls himself ZUBE can't be all bad.

I see that you aren't posting as of late, but great nickname! It's mine, too, as I happen to be of the last name Zube sans the R variety. :)

I wish I knew who anonymous was, cause I'm from a Zube clan in Jersey and somewhere along the family tree line, our great-grandfather lost track of 9 siblings after moving to America!

Zube Girl: That story sounds similar to the "Zuber" story I've heard also that there were 9 siblings that came to America from Baden Baden, Germany, and went their separate ways. Perhaps we're related after all :)

My apologies! I hadn't checked back in a while, and just found this again. That is so strange!

My great-grandfather moved over from Lithuania. One of my cousins went to Lithuania, and was told by the people there that Zube is not really a Lithuanian name. Most likely, Zube is French, and the Zube's escaped France when they were persecuting protestants.

Anyway, that's about as much as I know! My Dad's family still isn't that great at keeping in touch, so if that speaks for the past Zube's I'm not too surprised that we don't know much about our history.

Quite a number of strong personalities, though. It is pretty bizarre that your family's story is so similar to ours!
