Dear Mr. Balyer:

I am very interested in this Wilhelmina Steinbricker. If you happen to have any more information on her I would love to hear it.

I have been trying to research my own grandfather and so far it's a bit of a brick wall. It seems he never told anybody in my family who his ancestors were and the clues I have are sparse.

The best I have is a hypothesis that my grandfather was the son of Adam and Wilhelmina Steinbricker-Kistner (daughter of Wilhelmina Steinbricker). I have unearthed tantalizing tidbits about Adam and Wilhelmina (Minnie the younger) but so far no smoking gun.

If you have anything at all I'm all ears.

Jim K
