The name RIEN is unusual in the U.S. If you are visiting this site because your surname is Rien there is a large probability that we are related. I have never met or even communicated with a Rien I am not related to. If you share this name, why not send me a note?

My relatives are from Western Minnesota and originally from central Germany. I have other relatives living in New York and in Oregon.

Yes I know the name means "nothing" in French. Very amusing.
