I just wanted to write to you again (also hope you received my first =
e-mail as I didn't have it labeled right) and thank you again. Going =
through all the responses that I received, I was overwhelmed with all of =
yours. You were most generous with your time and I appreciate all the =
info and suggestions. =20
I have worked some with the ELCA micro film tapes on some other =
research. I have rented their films and researched them myself. What I =
did not know is that they would do a research for you for a fee. Since =
the films are $15.00, I may check into having them do the search for me =
and see how much that is. What I would hope to find is an indication of =
when she (and my grandfather Peter Martinus) came to Chicago and from =
My biggest thing with Petra is that I know she immigrated in 1890 (or =
there about) but I am not sure exactly where she went. Some family =
members said she went to Superior Wi to be with her son Ole Berg. =
Others indicated that she went to Chicago. Since there is no 1890 =
census to fall back on, I don't have a way to find that out. So we know =
that she went to Chicago by 1900 (according to the census) and lived =
there until her death. I also know she did die in Superior and was =
buried in Chicago. Her son Peter Martinus Berg is my grandfather. I =
have found him in the 1910 census with my grandmother and their 3 =
children. =20
I have done extensive research on this family and just a couple months =
ago, I visited their homes in Norway. I am now working on closing the =
gaps. =20
So again I do most sincerely thank you for your kind interest.
