Wendy, I have sent you an email. I have a lot of info. on the Beckner side of the Family. Just in case you dont get my email, write me at my address. Your Dad is my first cousin. Just as I sent the email I got booted off and I dont know if the letter went or not. The Johan Nicholas Beckner that you see in this forum is your 7th great grandfather. Please let me know if you need any more info. I sent the URL to my beckner site.
