My husband is Gary Berton Kirckof, from Ottertail Co, Minnesota.
His father was Melvin Berton Kirckof, wife Grace Norstebon
Grandfather was *Bert* (Englebert?) Kirckof, wife Orpha Harris. His family is from Belgrade/New Ulm MN area.
Great Grandfather was Gustav Kirchhoff and his wife Pauline Witt(note name change between the 2 generations)
Great Great Grandparents was Wilhelm Kirchhoff and Kristine/Kristina
There seems to be a tradition in the family where the first born son has a *BERT* somewhere in his name.
I've always wondered if his family has any connection with Gustav Robert Kirchhoff, the famous mathametician.
