Searching for any information on my GGmother, Ida Berger, who was born in Peoria Illinois in 1872, daughter of Alexander John Berger and Marie Elizabeth Prescott. She had a total of 7 daughters, from 3 husbands. My grandmother, Hazel Janssen, was born during Ida's first marriage to George Janssen.

Sherry, do you think your grandmother, Ida, could have had a brother Frederick? I am looking for a Frederick Berger in New Holland, Logan County, Illinois, and he would have been born possibly in the 1870s.

I have recently been wondering about my family tree. My name is George Richard Janssen II both my father and grandfather were George Janssen's and my 18month old son is a George. Can you help me get started on an understanding of how to do this?
Thank you,

Response to Cathi Knollenberg

My ggrandmother, Ida Berger, had 15 siblings that I have the names of, and none were named Frederick. They were all from the Farmdale, Tazewell, Illinois area.

Ida would have been my great grandaunt. My line descends from her brother, John Alexander, who married Mary Embree. I would be interested in any info you may have. Please contact me at merrywether77 at hotmail dot com. Thanks!
