Ken Frantz and Ken Frantz Bridges to Prosperity; plus Wikipedia’s article about Bridges to Prosperity. NOTE: Lorraine Frantz Edwards was so intrigued by this gentleman, she searched Ancestry.com and traced him (one generation at a time) back to Christian Frantz IV. Then Lorraine discovered that Ken and his wife have documented their families on Ancestry.
Greetings!! My name is Lorraine Frantz Edwards and I’m so grateful you have documented so many Frantz ancestors on your site. I’m currently working on a library with valuable information not published in Frantz Families–Kith & Kin. Visit my new library and give me your opinion. https://frantzdigitizedlibrary.wordpress.com/ Yesterday, going through Evelyn “Rosemary” Frantz files, I found a clipping for Loraine Frantz in Fort Wayne, Indiana. So this morning I embarked on the journey to find more about that lady. First checking to see if that was her maiden name; second: tracing her husband. The information on Ancestry is fragmented; it took many searches to get to the information you have supplied. THANK YOU so much!! I will add this information to my library data base. Any additional information will be appreciated. ~~ Sincere best wishes from Lorraine Frantz Edwards in Livingston, Texas.
The ancestry determined from the search (and message posted 30 Apr 2017 on Ancestry.com) led to Christian Frantz III and Anna Groh.
