Thank you for the response. I did some online searching and found out about your valuable work but apparently there is no online database and your research is not available in print or CD form that I can tell, so how does one access the information you have uncovered? The ancestors I wrote about all died after the 1930's. It's now only Margarethe or Gretchen that I know virtually nothing about.
What you are doing is a monumental and ongoing undertaking
but it's the access to the information that I don't quite comprehend...especially for someone out of the area.
