I am looking for information on my grandpa's family and any history that they would know bout family members. My grandpa's name is Robert Gerhardt Yanda; he was born April 14, 1926. Married Geraldine E. Gillessen on May 3, 1947 and had 6 children, 5 girls and 1 son. They were from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. From what I know of is that he has 2 brothers and 1 sister, Richard , Ray & Carol.
Anyone with any info please contact me @ shinckley@verizon.net. Thanx :)

I just found my parents family bible and thought I'd post some more info for anyone that can help. Its not much but it says that my grampa's parents names were Ray Yanda (May 20, (dont know year) and Eda Yanda (dont have maiden name) born October 21 (not sure on year). If that helps anyone else please let me know. Thanx! :)

Surnames: Yanda, Woloszyk
My husband's cousin, Lillian Celia Woloszyk, married a Ray Albert Yanda, who was born on May 20, 1899.
It was her second marriage. Could it have been his second marriage, too?
They were living in Washington State when they died. Lillian was a native of Wisconsin.

Im not sure but could be only if ur Ray had a son named Robert (my grampa). I can also ask my mom to find out somehow from her mother.

I believe you struck gold. There are a number of family trees on ancestry.com, with varying pieces of info. They show Ray with that birthdate, born in Cedar Rapids, Linn, Iowa, and a 1971 death in Washington.

If the trees are accurate, he was married (at least) twice, once to an Edith (Eda) L. Behrmann and once to a Mary from Lithuania. Lillian could well be Mary or even a later marriage, since they both died in Longview, Washington.

Ray and Eda had 5 children, Richard Dale (born in 1936) and Robert Gerhardt (born in 1926) and 3 others whose names are not listed (commonly done for privacy reasons because they were alive when the tree was posted.) This seems to match what you have in your original post.

Richard died 3/14/2012 in Wauwatosa. No death date shown for Robert.

Raymond was the son of Wencil (Wesley) Yanda and his first wife, Dottie Mae Harris. He had some siblings.

Hope this helps!

Were there other clues in that bible?

If not by marriage, at least by a common interest. :)

Does your mother know if Anna Mae was Ray's daughter?
