School: Green Grove, "Bee Hive" Reunion (2003)

Contact: Candice Burtard Laven

Hello, I am doing genealogy research and found this reunion notice on the web. I know the name "Burtard" is uncommon, so possible there is a connection. My Uncle George Burtard talks about his father, Joseph Burtard's family migrating from a border town between Germany and France and coming to Wisconsin. Our side of the family migrated to Colorado, moving their farm animals and equipment by train. I would appreciate any genealogy information you May be able to provide to help me in completing our family tree.

Sincerely, Candice Burtard Laven
