Hi Gael,

This would be a long shot:

From the Belgian records:

Charles Willems

Olivia Willems and
their father Theodore Willems.
All born before 1895.

My Grans family - this is all we know, she is our current brick wall.

Many thanks, GinaS

Hi Gael,

I am doing a lookup for a friend. Looking for any information on the Schaeffer family, she has details on a son Carl who was born 18 Aug, 1833, but nothing on his parents Nicholaus Schaeffer or his wife Sophia, siblings etc.

Sorry, only require information about Germany, Carl was born Saxonorg, Dresdon, Germany.

Any information would be great, thanks

Sorry Gina for not getting back to you earlier. Went away on holiday and then never looked at this site again.

I've had a look, but unfortunately came up with nothing.

Love to have helped you, but ...

Gael,

This is fantastic, thank you. Just a query has she got the details of Carl correct, if you can find them. Apparently, she got his details from her great aunt a number of years ago.

Gael

Gael Report 23 Aug 2010 12:25

Couldn't find any births for either Catherine or Friedrick - It doesn't go far enough back only to 1790's.

Gael

Gael Report 23 Aug 2010 12:27

I couldn't find the birth of Carl, so I can't help you there. Looked under all the 1833's.
