Gertie Family

Updated February 1, 2002

About Our Family Research

My Aunt prior to her death was able to tell us her mother's family (Elizabeth Eakes) immigrated from the Volga Valley in the late 1800's. Her father (Frank Gertie) arrived by himself in 1911 from the Volga Valley via Argentina where he left his parents as his father was denied entry to the US in 1905 on the direct emmigration from Russia.
We are attempting to locate any relatives. We are not aware of Frank having any siblings but when he immigrated he stated he would be staying with Uncle Jacob Franke, North Street, Topeka, Kansas. Did Frank's father Jacob have a sister married to a Franke? or was Frank's mother's maiden name Franke? To our knowledge Frank's mother's first name was Anna Maria, surname unknown.
