"Am searching for relatives: Pergande family Harry & Bertha; Karl and Bertha - many more. Most relatives are in the Milwaukee area"
The local German papers have family death notices/memorials or other clippings for a Carl (1919) and a Karl (1893); and then a Bertha (1919); also Harry, a WWI soldier - 2 clippings in the summer of 1918, one includes a photo.
These are among the 75+ Pergand Pergande Pergandt entries or references found in the now legendary "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). Other surnames connected with these families include Hilgendorf Tretow Guse Schlauert.
