Re: Detroit, MI & Stratford, Ontario Gerbig family

Hi Megan,

Do you know when your Gerbig (Gerby) family came across to either Canada or to Michigan? Do you know any other locations where the elder family members lived? Do you know of anyone who may have old postcards or pictures that may provide clues about the family movements?

I am trying to figure out if this Gerbig family was connected with the Canadian Gerbigs that came over during the American Revolutionary War. Otherwise, this family may have come over in the early or mid-1850's or with the others who came to Michigan and Wisconsin in 1879-1885.

Please let me know if you can figure out any other particulars.
