I'm just starting to research Rote roots. I'm looking for relatives in Fulton and Montgomery Counties of New York State. I have a wonderful son-in-law who I'm trying to do this for as a birthday present.
So far I have a Charles Rote who was listed in the 1920 census of Montgomery Co. as born in 1883 and his wife Mary: Three sons: Volgert 1907, Everett 1909, Gerald 1911.
This is a Volgert Jr. born in 1931
My son-in-law's grandmother was Roselinde Rote born about 1935 who I'm trying to connect to one of the three sons listed above.
