Hi there.

My maiden name is Wirtjes and I am from Shannon, IL. I have done a bit of research on my family, but am really just getting started. I have seen these names come up frequently, but am just not sure where they tie in. Maybe you could help me make the connection. My Grandfather was Benard Wirtjes, his parents were Albert and Elizabeth (Weegans)Wirtjes. My grandfather always told me that his father came over from Germany when he was about 12. This is all I know about the Wirtjes descendants. I would appreciate any help you can give me, and I have information on this branch of the family tree.
Thanks,
Tammy (Wirtjes) Glendenning
