Hello and thank you! It does indeed look like you found Bertha's parent's names. I know that the information about Bertha in your first post matches everything I have about her. Bertha is my great grandmother. I am very excited to know her parents' names because I have been unable to find them. And it looks as if her father died in the U.S., which I would not have known. My dad, who is 89, knows nothing about his grandparents, Albert Scherf and Bertha Brinkman, so I have been trying to find out about them. Thank you so much for helping me.
