Looking for PETSCHE family history
I have just started looking for my fathers family history, got done with moms back 4 centuries.
So far the little I have been able to find is grandpa John Valentine PETSCHE,born 1896 to Joseph and Mary PETSCHE in Lincoln, S.D., married to Olive MAHER and lived in Minnehaha,S.D. in 1930, he registered for the draft in w.w.I.. GGrandpa was possibly born in 1865 in Moody, S.D. and married Mary around 1894-5, in the 1900 census they also had a daughter named Kattie. I could not find much more in census and death record, I am going to start searching media archive in the known areas.
