I am trying to track my ggmother ancestry. I have a "fraktur" with a birthdate of Dec.18, 1887 from McCook(?) Nebraska with reference to Rusoland(?) and Brumenthal. Her parents were Phillip and Katharina Magdelena Voelker. Do not have any information earlier than this - no idea of parentage or siblings. Anna Maria married John Seibel and had several children including my grandmother, Freida. Voelker spelling was also known to us as Foelker and Felker.
