  1. I’m Anna Marie Pollard Goertzen.. Richard and Elizabeth Rowe Pollard are my great grandparents. I have been trying to find out more about my fathers family but so much about him has been hidden from us. I will try and use some of your leads to see if I can find out more about him


    • Hi Anna Marie –
      Are you related to Bradley Goertzen? If not this is a huge coincidence. I just connected with a Brad Goertzen through DNA on Ancestry and was exchanging emails with him this weekend. I’m happy to share more info on Richard and Elizabeth. Please feel free to contact me at I’ll also reply to your email in case you don’t see this response.
