I know this is not in regards to the name Helwig, but I was just curious about your last name...Michela...I have a 4th cousin with this last name and I haven't found any info besides that her maiden name is Emily Dudzik(sisters Jenny, Bessie, etc.) and she married a Michela in Chicago, IL and she died at 37 yr. of age from tuberculosis. Born: June 18, 1902, died June 20th, 1939. Just thought I'd say "what the heck" and see if you know anything about where the Michela fam. came from and if she's in your family tree.
