Thanks for all your help through the last few years. I just inhereted nearly a thousand photo's of my great grandfather Fred , my grandmother Emma, there children frank, albert, fritz, carl ETC, along with ton's of historical document's , family crests , and a in depth family tree back to germany. I must state to you that Bertha was not part of my mielke family in rib lake wisconsin . Hard to imagine 2 mielke families in one tiny town unrelated. I am sorry to inform you she was not even a great aunt to my gradfather clarence. Good luck in your future searches.
