I can see I will have my work cut out for me when I go to Salt Lake City in June. Finding Helena is going to be challenging as records for Elberfeld, Germany are scarce. If I am lucky, there is one set of church records I could possibly find Helena. If I am unable to find her in the church records, I will begin looking at the marriage record for Otto Cleff and Helene Ritz. As I will be attending the Ancestor Seekers Research week, I'm hoping that the researcher on the International Floor will have some ideas on how I can find information on my great-grandmother, Helena W. Cleff.
