Some one not part of this listserv has asked a question about a specific church. If you can help him out (Dale Albrecht) please respond to him at dalemarc at telusplanet.net

    I have looked at a few notes and I found out that my dad’s mother Magdalena Betsch had an older sister Katherine who married a Harter and then when widowed married a Kercher and had children from both those marriages. She had a sister Rosie who married a Blum. I think for brothers there was an Albert, George, John and Peter and one unnamed boy born in the US . Other sisters could include and Ema who had two boys of her own and Alieta but I really know very little about any of these people. (Horst Gutsche - this side is Bessarabian German from Jakobstal) (This is the Polish German side and there is some kind of relationship with Ewald Wuschke so there should be some information in the HSGPV library at Trinity Lutheran in Edmonton - Horst Gutsche.)
