I am looking for information on the Papke family. Christian Papke married Wilhelmina Blok, and they are my great grandparents.Their children were Emma, Otelia, Bertha, Amelia, Carlina, William, Gust, and Gustav.
My grandmother was Otelia (Tillie)Papke (4/24/?? - 5/16/43) and married Frank Zindel (4/6/1875 - 1958?) from Germany/Grand Rapids.
My father is Howard Zindel.He had brothers and sisters named Lucy, Dorothy, Minnea, Beatrice, William, Dorothy and Mickey, all brought up in Grand Rapids, MI.
I have no information on Wilhelmina Blok or Christian Papke other than their children's first names.
All of my relatives lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan.I was told they immigrated to the US from Germany, but I am not sure of that.
If you have any information, I would appreciate receiving it.Thank you for your time.Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
