I am new to this genealogy search thing and am trying to build out/find information regarding my father's family.
My father was John Fuchs, Jr. (No middle name). I believe he was born in McGregor Iowa, spent time living in Elkhorn, WI before going to Korea, marrying Carolyn A. Loose, and settling in the Milwaukee, WI area. His father was John Sr. who was born in Switzerland and returned to Switzerland shortly after my parents married. My grandfather had three wives, I do not know the names of the first two. I know nothing about the first two. Last wife's name was Freida and they were married in Switzerland.
My father passed in 1989 shortly before his 61st birthday. He was born May 1st, 1927.
I know he had relatives that lived outside of Dubuque Iowa. He had another relative (I believe a sister) that had been a missionary in the Phillipines. She passed of Ovarian Cancer sometime in the 1970s and her spouse returned to the states and settled in the St. Louis area.
All other relatives that I was aware of were still living in Switzerland, but I never knew the names of any of them.
I have two siblings, Richard Allen and Brian John. Richard was born October 27, 1958 and Brian was born November 11, 1957.
Any information that can be provided would be appreciated.
