Hello, I am helping my friend, Megan, find her Herman family roots.Her grandmother Margaret Herman was born in 1923 in Milwaukee Wisconsin to 15 or 16 year old Gladys HermanEstimate Gladys's date of birth as 1907 or 1908.Megan has narrowed this down to 3 possible Herman families from the census records for Milwaukee and Chicago.
Margaret Herman was put up for adoption with the Children's Aid Society who worked with the orphan trains.She was adopted by the Frank Russell family of Platteville, Wisconsin. Margaret Russell (her adopted name) had some health problems along with her daughter. Her granddaughter Megan has been searching for years for this Herman family not only for medical information but to help her connect to her Herman family tree. Any information would be helpful. Please contact her at megan nicholson
