Behrendt Family

+4 votes
I have recently hit a brick wall with my research on my grandmothers family. Her grandmother (My great-great grandmother) was Helen Wilhelmina Behrendt. She was born circa 1897 in Scranton, PA and died 1/13/1964 in Scranton. She lived in that area her entire life, so far as I know. I have all the information I need concerning her life after she was married, but I know very little before that. I do know that her mother was Louisa, who was born in Germany, and that she had several siblings: Gust (born circa 1875), Frank (born circa 1884) and Annie (born circa 1893). There may have been other siblings.

Any census or vital records would be most appreciated. Thank you all in advance, I really appreciate all of the Wikitree community for their help in the past.

Do you have Helen Wilhelmina Behrendt's maiden name and or her father's first name?
by Frank Gill G2G Astronaut (2.3m points)
Sorry, I should have clarified. Her maiden name is Behrendt, and her married name is Price. Her father may have been August, or Augustus or someothing like that- I'm not entirely sure.

Maybe Gust Behrendt's first name is short for August, similar to his father.

A daughter may also have a similar name to her father.

Maybe you can sort this out better than I can.
