To Mike Kortum:
I was wondering if the uncle of your father, Peter Helmut Kortum (umlaut over the u) that moved to the US in the 1800's was my great grandfather, Bernard Henrich Kortum. Bernard had two sons, the youngest was my grandfather, Friedrich Johan Kortum, born in New York in 1888. Please contact me if we are related. I am trying to connect to the Kortum family.
