Rieker's from Bergdorf, Russia, SD, CA
My great-grandparents were Friedrich Rieker born 25 Jul 1884 in Bergdorf, Russia & Katharina Merkel born in 1884 in Bergdorf Russia. I believe Friedrich's parents were Johannes Rieker & Christina Ahl married on Nov 25, 1881. Fredrich & Katharina had 10 children one of which is my grandfather Ferdinand born 9 Dec 1917 in Eureka, South Dakota. I am looking for any additional info. on my great-grandparents, their parents and on down the line. I am just starting to research my ancestors. I have had some great info. passed down by someone very helpful, & would love to get much more. I appreciate anything anyone can pass down to me.
thanks so much!
