I need to find out the names of my great grandmother's parents, name Kaufmann, in Hessen, Germany

+3 votes
If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. My great grandmother's name is Betty Kaufmann. She was born 3/12/1879. She was known as Betty Fuld after she married. Emigrated to the U.S. from Shanghai, that's another long story, in the 1940s.

      Yes, this is her but it wouldn't give her parent's names, which is what I'm looking for.
      Perhaps, with the additional information that I added, someone can find the names of her parents?

      But I don't see the actual birth certificate.
      Thanks for trying Betty and all.
      Actually, I called the cemetary office and her exact death date is 11/5/1971. Does this help in the research I'm trying to do. Also she spelled her name Betti.

      We've always known her as Betty. It is the name on her headstone. On one immigration paper, it says Bethi, but that may have been immigration. I found a birth record somewhere but not the actual birth certificate. I thought the Nazi's kept meticulous records.

      My grandmother's name was Irma Fuld Adler. I'm not sure of her birthday but she passed away in 1969.

      For my Uncle Gus Fuld, I don't have any dates. I am guessing 1970, because he too passed before my Oma.

      Uncle Siegfried Fuld died some years later. I don't have dates. I'm really sorry.

      I was only told that Opa died during World War I fighting for the Kaiser, lol.
      My grandmother's name was Irma Fuld Adler. I'm not sure of her birthday but she passed away in 1969. I just figured out that Grandma was born in December of 1907 or 1908.
      "Oma"  is that Betty ??
      Yes it is.

      Moritz Fuld was Jewish.  I have a little more information on Betty.  She had two nephews,  Carl and Willy on the Kaufmann side.  I don't have any dates on them,  but she must have had a brother or sister in order to have nephews.  Hope this helps.

      answered by Wayne Morgan G2G6 Pilot (809k points)
      There should be a birth record in Stuttgart (civil records), as this is given as her place of birth. Her last residence in Frankfurt should also show up in their civil registers. If not destroyed by the war, these records should be kept by the local "Standesamt", it's worth trying to contact them. There surely is additional information.

      @ Wayne Morgan: For older records you often find baptism entries, However, this does not apply for civil records. 19th/20th century church records always show the date of birth as well.

      This might help when trying to trace Jewish people in Germany:
      I'm  not sure.
      Where did you see Stuttgart? I'm not sure about the other relatives.  All I can do is add to family tree and see what happens
      Yvonne:  What does this mean ,  Kauffrau Rentnerin,

      On an Immigration record,Yokohama Japan,too State of Washington.

      it says Betti born in Niedderrodenbach Germany

      See if you can find,I have wore out my computer looking.

      And how are you related too the Fuld clan??
      Kauffrau means housewife.

      Oma had quite an interesting journey to the U.S. She was captured by the Russians and sent to Siberia. Then she wound up on the Shanghai express, from Yokohoma, Japan she took a ship to Washington state.
      I am related through my mother and grandmother Irma (Betty's daughter).

      Irma Fuld's dates are 1908-1969;

      Sigmund's dates are 1907-1987;

      I don't have dates for the other two siblings, Gustav Fuld and Alice Fuld Ackerman.
      Kauffrau does not mean housewife. This would be "Hausfrau ".
      Kauffrau would be saleswoman.
      Rentnerin means that she was retired.

      The spelling of the place is wrong. It is Niederrodenbach.

      I am not related in any way,  I just saw the thread and had a look...
