I emailed you but haven't heard back as yet and I think that perhaps the message didn't get through.I would be most happy to send a gedcom or data file of all the Ernst Family in this line, going back to Albert Ernst of Halgehausen.It is an extensive file that is the result of paid research and additional information from cousins in Germany and the USA.
Family lore has it that g.grandpa talked of family in both Illinois and Nebraska and we have had a tough time putting that part of our history together.I would also be most happy to have your input on the descendants of Peter Ernst in Illinois.

PS. My father was born in Warsaw, Illinois but the family moved to Milwaukee when he was a young boy.
