Events Leading To Geo Steinbrecher's Death

Updated: Sep 6

Newspapers are such a valuable resource for discovering information about our ancestors and their communities during their lives. Especially to help us uncover events that we may never have realized happened in their lives without them being published. Thanks to the Grand Rapids Press newspaper in Grand Rapids, Michigan I was able to learn a lot about what happened prior to my 2nd great-grandfather, George "Geo" Steinbrecher's death. I still would love to be able to look at the court records for the case linked to his death, but for now, this is what I learned from the local newspapers that reported about his story.
