Our Biegert line came from Dundenhiem, Germany in 1883. Two brothers Gottlieb and Johann Georg married two sisters Kettenackers whom they met on the boat coming to the USA. They first went to Iowa briefly and then settled in Minnesota. I have the Biegert line back to 1639. Seems like we must all be related if we go back far enough. Let me know if I can help. I looked in my records and could not find an Edward. Perhaps you could check into where in Germany your ancestors came from. I would be happy to share my file with you.
