Surnames: Galles Getslaff Hamm
I'm looking for any info I can find on my great grandfather and grandmother Albert Nicholas Galles and Celia (Getslaff) Galles. Their daughter Jane who married Francis Hamm is my paternal grandmother.

Both lived in Wood County, WI until their deaths in 1978. I'm not sure if either lived in other places before that, but I'm thinking they were in central WI by 1920ish around the time my grandmother was born.

I'm new to researching my family, so not much info to exchange yet, but willing to coloborate as much as I'm able. I'm still in WI, so I might have better access to some records once I have more to go on.

Just a short update on what I'm finding on these lines of my family tree.

From the 1920 Census:
Wood County, WI

Vol. 98 E.D. 192
sheet 3, line 86

Galles, Margaret age 44 birthplace - Wisconsin
Edward G S 21
Sylvester O S 19
Margaret D 18
Albert N S 20
(all the children's birthplaces are listed as Wisconsin also)

vol.98 E.D. 192
sheet 2 line 79

Getzlaff, Fredrick age 56 birthplace: Germany; citizenship: 1880
Minnie W age 48, birthplace Germany
Lillie - 23 D Wisconsin
Eric - 21 S Wisconsin
Celia - 18 D Wisconsin

also listed

Getzlaff, Flora birthplace Germany living alone, 651 10th St. S. Grand Rapids, Wood County, WI

I'm pretty sure Flora is related somehow because the address given is the same one given for the Fred/Minnie Getzlaff family in the 1930 Grand Rapids, WI directory of citizens. Not sure if she is an aunt or grandmother or??

Still welcoming any input anyone can give. Thanks

You are related with me. Your Grand-father was a brother of my dad's. I knew him very well. He is a part of my direct line.

I'm sending you an email now Jerry. I tried to send one earlier, but it sounds as though you did not receive it. I'm very anxious to hear from you, as I'm still stuck on this branch of my tree.

I have only one vague memory each of Albert and Celia as I was only about 4 yrs old when they passed away.
