I am looking for information on my family with the surname Mertens. My great grandfather was born in Schaffen (West Flanders?)in 1893, his name was Arthur Mertens. He moved to France where he met my great grandmother, Zea Bourla. They then moved to Brussells with my grandmother and great aunt. My great grandfather was a decorated war hero and owned a hardware store at 10 Eisenhower AVE. He had also been the president of a bank. I have some info on them but am looking for more. I also know that I still have family there and am curious to contact them. My grandparents and great grandparents came to America in the 1940s after the war.
