My genealogical journey began in the mid-1990s due to curiosity about my grandfather, Harry Nunn. It was a long eight years before I broke through the wall that prevented me from finding him and his family. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, the key was his sister, Elizabeth. Elizabeth married Louis Siebert in 1905 and they had two daughters, Regina and Eva. By 1930 Regina was no longer in the household. She must have married – but whom?
Periodic checking on the www.stevemorse.org website I found a bride card for a Regina Siebert. The card stated the groom was Nicholas Eberhard, Jr. In mid-December I ordered the film from the local Family History Center. I anxiously awaited the opening of the FHC this week after its ten day holiday. I viewed the film on January 5 and found the bride card was indeed MY Regina Siebert. She stated her mother’s maiden name was Elizabeth Nunn! Success!!
Through the SS Death Index I found Regina Eberhard died 10 Oct. 1987 in Queens, NY. For only $8.00 the Queens Library Archives will provide a copy of the obit. The letter is in the mail; my fingers are crossed that it provides further information on this family.
