I’ve been wanting to know more about the parents of Hulda WACH (i.e., my third great-grandparents), but have only had a few pieces of information: the surname and the mother’s first name (Amelia). I’ve talked about this brick wall a few times here on my blog, and in fact, just wrote about it a few days ago for Randy’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun post.
Had I entered the information from the death certificates I collected a few weeks ago, I wouldn’t have needed to write that information in the last post. Why? Because I found Hulda’s brother’s death certificate…and it lists the names of the parents, including…wait for it…Amelia’s maiden name! So I now know that my third great-grandparents are Henry WACH and Amelia WIETZKE. Woo-hoo!! Making progress. Happy dance!!
