Hi,

Trying to find out about the German side of family. All I have is their names, date of emigration, birthdates and death dates. I believe we have relatives in USA but have no idea which part etc. They emigrated as "Jankowski" in 1949 to Australia presumably to sound Polish rather than German after WW2. George was an animal trainer (lions/ tigers etc) for circuses. George Rudolf Schroeder aka Jerzy Jankowski born 1903 in Berlin? and his wife Hedy born 1907 in Wanne Germany. Both died in Sth Australia.

Any information would be greatly appreciated

Thank y ou

Kym

I know of a Marie Schroeder--nickname Frederica-- who was the third wife of a Carl Herzog.  They married in 1838.  They had seven children, or had some of them from previous marriages.  Charles "Carl" W. Herzog apparently signed papers so that Frederica could emmigrate to the United States. This took place in 1870. The childeren were born around 1850-1860.    I found gravestones in Montogomery County, Hatfield Cemetery, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.  The childeren were  Charles H."Harry", Lena, Minnie, Frederick Wilhelm, and Caroline. I also have a picture of the Herzog family and Frederica.  I do have more childerens' names but can't think of them all off hand. The Herzog family would become the Hertzog family when Frederica came over to the United States.  They apparently traveled from Bremen to New York on their way over here.  This is really all I know of the Schroeder name.  Any information regarding the Herzogs, or Hertzogs would be much appreciated.  Charles Herzog apparently was a member of the Signal Corp of the 41st regiment in New York in the Civil War (he fought for the Union) before being discharged in 1864-1866.
Greetings. My grandmother (Adele Eastman) said that Charles Herzog was her grandfather.

It doesn't look like there is a relation to my paternal ancestors.

My father's mother's name is Stella, but don't know her maiden name; she was born in Louisville.  I found her with my father (at 3 years old) in the 1930 census; she was listed as married with no husband in the household.  Then the 1940 census shows her divorced and living with Elmer Schroeder who was a baby in the 1920 census when he was living with Stella and Clifford.  They lived in Louisville and Cincinnati during those times, but I cannot find Stella before 1910 since I don't know her maiden name, nor can I find Clifford who was supposedly born in Pennsylvania.  I am not sure where my father was in 1940; he would have been 13 years old.

Good luck in your search!
