> Good morning
> I am searching for descendants of a Jacob Steffen, who is said to have
been butcher in Chicago, as far as I know, in the 1880s.
> He was born in Tondern or T?nder in the Herzogtum Schleswig, then
Denmark, later Germany, since 1920 Denmark. Birthday: March 8, 1852.
> He was married with a Cathrina, 3 children: Henry, Marine and Jacob.
> His brother Hinrich was my grandgrandfather. In a family meeting last
week I got an old fotoalbum containing fotos of that family - father, mother
and 3 kids -, taken by a Chicago photo atelier Warmbold in 1517 ,
Milwaukee Ave. , other fotos of Levin Milwaukee Ave. 547.
> Is there anybody with this Jacob Steffen in his ancestors line?
