Kathy, I have been away from genealogy for a bout 5 years and am just getting my feet wet again.
I have just recently moved, and a lot of my stuff is still packed up, anyway.................
I was able to connect with a few Englert several years ago.It seems there was a family near Des Moines (mine) and another in Iowa City which is in a nearby county.There is an Englert Theatre there!!!
I never was able to connect the two families though. As uncommon as Englert is, it seems to me there must be a connect.
My father was Frederick, born in Idaho His father John, born in Iowa His father Louis born ??? His father Adam born??? Nothing after that.Searching at the Family History Center in SLC, I copies a lot of Englert documents from Germany.My life changes shortly after that, and I never did get to go through them like I would have liked to.
Somewhere in all my stuff, I believe there is a reference to some of the names you mentioned.I also have a connection to the Milk(s) family w/ Englert.
I you would like to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, it might spur me to get into this again.Thanks for your response to my message.
