My great-grandfather was said to be Lawrence Welk's cousin. I have not been able to make the connection as of yet, but do know that Robert Welk's ( my greatgrandfather) wife(Ida Ceigelse) received letters from Lawrence Welk(the bandleader) .If anyone has any info to share, I would be greatly interested.Robert Welk came from Germany and settled in Merrill,WI. I don't have much info beyond that. Thank you Karen
