My wife is a Giertz and I have been trying to find her family roots. I have come upon an Edna Giertz in the census records that is related to my wife's family. In the 1892 census for Orleans County, NY, in the town of Shelby there is:
August Giertz 28 b. USA farmer
Anna Giertz 26 b. USA wife
Edna Giertz 4 b. USA daughter
Rosette 1 b. USA daughter

They show up again in the 1900 census for Orleans County this time in the town of Barre:
August 35 (6/1864) NY farmer
Anna 33 (9/1866) NY wife 5/3 married 14 yrs
Edna 11 (11/1888) NY
Rosetta 9 (3/1891) NY
Walter 3 (12/1896) NY

Walter is my wife's great-grandfather. I know that the family moved to Royalton in Niagara County, NY very close to where we live. Perhaps this is your Edna?
