Re: Bergner family photo album found
Thanks to the improved census indexes at Ancestry.com, I managed to find the right BERGNER family a couple of months ago, and I should posted then. The family in the album is that of Louis and Augusta BERGNER, who immigrated in the 1860s from what is now Germany, and were settled in Wisconsin by 1870 (mainly in Shawano Co.). Like your ancestors, they enjoyed a prosperous life, with business interests in lumber and grain. In the early 1900s, some members of the family relocated in Everett, Washington.
The 1930 census index shows several young BERGNER children in Shawano Co., and by using an online phone directory I was able to speak to one of those children. It turned out that he has a niece leaving very near me, and I was able to give her the album.
Now that you have reminded me, I'll notify the others who responded to my original posting.Thanks!
