I am trying to connect w/ John Minke who posted a querry in 2001 about Hermann Minke and Mary Renz.
My great aunt is Mary Renz (b. 2 Aug 1892/d. Jun 1983).She is the daughter of Michael and Katrina Renz.All three immigrated from Germany to Union Hill (Union City), NJ in 1894.She later married John(?) Minke.They lived in N. Bergen, NJ.
I would be interested in learning more about them and their family. My father's family lost contact with them a long time ago.
