  1. I knew my maternal grandfather Charles (Karl) Stettenfeld immigrated in 1852, I knew he was a shoemaker from Bavaria. Now I know what town he was from. Thanks for making lists available!

  2. I am trying to help out a family in Germany now with a search on a German born in Dessau/ Anhalt on June 16th 1896 who was to have died in Cleveland,(I think Ohio) in 1951.

  3. By the way the name of the party is Walter Freundenthal
