Hello, my name is chris gerhardt of medicine hat alberta canada. I am trying to find information on my great grampa.

So as i said i am chris gerhardt of medicine hat dad is ken gerhardt of regina, saskatchewan canada...........and my dads dad is jacob gerhardt from melville, saskatchewan canada.

Now i am trying to find information on my grampa's dad who is carl gerhardt. I do know he was born may 25 1886 in wollynein , bargstko, russia and he was in the army. Now appearently he defected out of the army and came to canada on a "cattle ship" and then in canada he married whilemina schick and then they had 9 children. I also know carl had 7 other siblings. Basically i would like to find out when carl came to canada, in hopes that it might lead me to find out information about his dad and mom.

Can you help me? if not do you have any suggestions. Thanks, chris. Email me back at
