RESEARCHERS: Pam Drake (tellpam@usa.net) who has this emigrant in her online WorldConnect database.
SOURCES: Wilhelm's parents' names were not on his marriage record at Sts Peter and Paul but he was found on the Holte emigration list, easily identifiable because he and his bride-to-be were traveling together. An entry was found for them on the FTM cd index to the Germans to America series which gave their ages at the time of emigration. With that information, an entry was found for Wilhelm in the Holte parish baptism records. Wilhelm and Helene eventually moved to MN. His death date there and the information for his children was taken from the online WorldConnect database of Pam Drake. She also had his year of birth and parents' names which made identification certain.
