I am tracing my great grandfathers family. His name is John Rabusch. I noticed on the rootsweb site that a Bernice G. (Rabusch) Blaauw was born 12/5/1916 and died 9/6/2000. Do you have any information on her family (Rabusch) and if so, I would like to know more about her. My great grandfathers family was from the Schleswig-Holstein Germany area. His parents were Jurgen and Anna Rahbusch. John came to the US in 1880's and did have a nephew travel with him (Wilhelm). The names of John's brothers and sisters are Heinrich, Wilhelm, Hans, Margeretha, Bertha, Anna, Catherine.
Please let me know if any of this is a connection to Bernice and I would also like to know that name of her parents. Maybe I could find out from a relative in Iowa about them. Thanks for your help.
