I am currently researching my family's history as an anniversary present for my parents 41st wedding anniversary this year. I am having some trouble with my maternal grandmother's side of the family.
My great grandmother was Dorothy Louise Blank b November 9, 1892 in Brooklyn NY and died April 1983 in Tampa, Florida. She married my great grandfather Harold Herman Banker b. May 21, 1894. I have no idea the date of marriage. They had two children, my grandmother, Florence Mildred Banker b May 25, 1920 and my Harold Herman Banker, Jr., b June 30 1918. Through death records, I discorvered he died December 10, 2007.
I am trying to find out who my great grandmother's parents were. My grandmother used to tell me that she believe her mother was named after her own mother. SO that would mean my great great grandmother would have been a Louise Blank. I have no proof of that so the name could be completely different. My grandmother also told me that she thinks she was born around 1870ish but was not certain. I have no idea what her father's name was nor when they were married. I had not had any luck whatsoever in my searching.
Any help whatsoever is appreciated more than I can express. Maybe we are searching for the same person. Thank you!
