I am writing this for my husband, John Gantner. He has few living relatives to help him with his genealogy. His father was William Joseph Gantner b. 08 Mar 1909, d. 1962, married to Mildred Dorothy Petersen b. 07 May 1910, d. 1952 -- no marriage date, lived in Chicago, IL and Wisconsin area. William's father was John Gantner, born about 1874 in Austria/Hungary/Germany or Romania. William's mother was Josephine Frank, also born in those same 4 countries somewhere about 1878. No further information is known by any living relatives. Mildred Dorothy Petersen's mother was Thea Richelsen b. abt. 1889 believed in IL and d. in 1962. Midred's father was Edward Petersen b. abt 1887 in German, d. date unknown. My husband was only 5 when his mother died and his father didn't share anything before dying.

Hi,

My name is Orsolya Gantner and I live in Hungary. My grandfather was born in 1899 in Arad. Arad at that time was part of Hungary, but after the I. World War it was given to Romania. This was when my grandfather escaped to Hungary and two of his brohers and a sister went to the US.
I am not sure if this is related in any way to your husband's family, I just thought I would let you as this may help and inyour message yuo mentioned HUngary and Romania as well.

Kind regards: Orsi
