All Those Grandchildren

Researching the entire family is advised, but we don’t always do it.

I was trying to pin down information on an aunt, Wilhelmina (Trautvetter) Senf Kraft–particularly when she managed to settle in Illinois. It was not until I obtained the christening record of each of her grandchildren that I was able to do that.

There as one of the sponsors for one of her grandchildren was Wilhelmina. It helped me to pinpoint when she had arrived in Illinois.

    Gotcha! Hadn’t quite understood some of the recommended documentations required. Now I understand. Thank u. It is to help to try tying up those loose ends.

    Yes, within the last year I’ve been adding widnesses. Widnesses to baptisms – when available – and witnesses to marriages – when available (only in a few places). It can give additional children or spouses to the original family.
