Awesome! Thanks for the assist.
Added Alice's death certificate.  (Going slower than normal since also watching the Super Bowl.)
Yep, one eye on the game and one on WikiTree; replying during commercial breaks.
Just added Lillie's death certificate.
Looks like you're in the running for WikiTree SuperGenealogist MVP tonight.
Added Emily's death certificate and the abstract for Johanna's certificate.
You're the best Michelle.

Gustav, Johanna, and Amelia (Minnie) now have an 1860 US Census record. It looks like the evidence is there to update Minnie's first name to Amelia. If the stars line up right, Gustav might get a death cert and an 1850 census record too.
I am done for now for I have to get some sleep before I go to work today.  I was able to locate Katherine's death certificate once I located her obituary.  The cert. was indexed under Leer not Lees!  I was able to track Gustav and Carl using Newspapers.com and verifying them through addresses.  I hope all this helps!  Hope you have a good week.
Sure it helps!

Thanks Michelle for the generous effort you put in on SuperBowl Sunday making, by my count, 43 edits and adding oodles of records to the Gustave Ernst family profiles of St. Louis. Did you notice how the Chiefs started their comeback while you were working away on the Ernst profiles? Karma perhaps?
Thank you. I grew up in Missouri and now live in Kansas, so the Chiefs are my team. Glad they won!
