A family clue!

I have been researching my family genealogy.
Thanks to Margaret Houben, my sister in law, who piqued my interest in genealogy again, I began looking for my great great grandma's name. According to my Mom, there was no record of it, as the photo above showing my great great grandma has no name on the back.
(she is Pauline Hein Gusa's mother.)
So I double checked the huge binder of family history my dear Aunt Pat Brutka put together in the 1990's, and lo and behold, there was a pedigree chart way at the back, and it lists her name!
Do you know how excited I am? I was successful on my first attempt!!!!
Her name is Wilhelmina Kuhn. I believe Kuhn is her maiden name, as her husband's name which is listed above hers is Johanne Gainske. There is no record of her birthdate or her marriage. I would love to know how to track these dates down, along with copies of her certificates. She lived until 98.
