I am just begining a family tree search. My father was Franklin Peter Nielsen born in 1920 somewhere around Doylestown in Columbia county WI his parents were Leona Ludwig and Carl Nielsen and there my search ends. From what I understand some of the family settled the area around Doylestown so hopefully I can get some help. I would like to follow the Nielsen name further back then just my grandfather. any Help will be greatly appreciated.

Since I don't have alot to work on. I found a Franklin Neilsen born in wisconsin living with mother Leona and step father Edward Greenway in 1930 in Detroit, Michigan. Does this match anything you already have?

Otherwise, if you can please supply Leona and Carl's approx birthdate or age and birthplace. Leona is not a common name and searches on her might find something.

Are there older siblings of Franklin, that might appear on the 1920 census with his parents?

Thank you
