A Family Becoming American, Volume 6: Polter
David W. Kruger, Foreword by Christopher C. Child
Hardcover; 324 pages, illustrated
Award-winning author David Watson Kruger continues to explore the heritage of four children of two brothers who married two sisters—families on which there is very little in print. This sixth volume in the series treats the Russian Lithuanian ancestry of Kruger’s wife Jean Lucille MacHardy’s mother, Paulina Augusta (Polter) MacHardy (1911-1997), tracing the known descendants behind the Polter, Urban, Wisgin, and Steinert families. Kruger’s meticulous research finds and records as many of the descendants of his and his wife’s sixteen sets of great-great-grandparents as possible, and provides meticulous historical and biographical detail on the individuals and the places in which they lived along the way.
