New Biography for Galen Weiker Rote (1888-1941)

+4 votes

One profile at a time I am updating the biographies of the people whose profiles I manage. Today, I updated the profile for my maternal grandfather, which means I have posted biographies for my parents and each of my grandparents. I still need to fix the sources to remove all the GEDCOM extras and to use EE-approved formatting, but after more than a month away from WikiTree, I'm very happy to have made such a good start. Please do drop by and see what I've written for my grandfather's bio at

First - welcome back!  Second - great job on the bio.  So sad about his daughter :(  And then the way he died - yikes!!

Thanks, Eowyn. Yes, my mom idolized her dad. I've always been sad that both my grandfathers passed away before I was born. I think I would have like both of them, though for very different reasons.
