Re: SHAAK/SCHAAK Lebanon, Pa.
Let me add some names to the info I gave previously.
My father is William Schaak and his father is Philip Schaak.William Schaak was born and raised in Milwaukee.I know that Philip Schaak came to Milwaukee via New York, and that he had 3 children from a previous marraige.All I know about the previous marriage is that there was a daughter named Charlette.
My father's grandmother lived in Medford, WI and I understand that my grandmother(Philip's second wife) used to take my father to see Aunt Vera in Medford all the time.
So your grandmother is my great-aunt, which makes us distant cousins.
