I have a request for help from someone who wonders if Warren S. Wangen is related to him. He found a phone number for Wangen in Lancaster, CA and tried to call him but got no reply. He said his father was Peter/Peder Vang/Wang/Wangen, b. 1883 in Norway, who came to the US ca 1904/05 and went to Wis. where he worked as a cobbler. He remembers that his father had a brother who came to the US and used to write letters to them from Boston. Contact was lost and now he wonders if the above Warren could be a grandson of his father's brother. Peder Vang/Wang had 5 children born in Rhinelander, WI - he died there in 1962. I had previously tried to help him find his father's family in Norway, but didn't make any progress.
