Surnames: GEIGER
I have an extensive database on many Geiger families and would be happy to check for Cora Geiger. Can you give me approximate dates for her and where she lived? Was Oscar Kulp Fink her husband? Any information you could give me would help me to see if she is in my database of Geiger families. You may also want to check my Geiger Webpage to see if you can find anything of interest there. The URL is listed here.

Oscar Kulp Fink, Cora Geiger

It has been a long time since we exchanged Billet data. Do you have any significant new data? Have you seen my Billet book published in 1998? Available at HSYC. Would like to hear from you again.
