Gerten Family Genealogy Forum
I believe this is the same family line, but your Edward is from a different brother. I have a book that Nancy Gerten, of CA just put together this year on the Gerten family. She filled me in on the Gertens from Bruch - Outscheid area of Germany, which is where this branch originates - beginning with Josef Goerten, b about 1784. She has a John Edward Gerten b1870 in Chicago and I believe she still has family in the Chicago-Naperville area. Email me if you want more from Nancy.
