I noticed that Heather is going to email Southward record Office about this, good idea Heather, if you hear anything back from then, I am more than happy to pop over there, and copy anything that may be of help.........and forward to you guys of course just noticed Jim'a reply that looks quite interesting Mmm.

What an interesting story. You really are a clever bunch. I hope someone buys her death cert to find out what happened to her.

Just looked on ancestrys community board under Boley to see if they may have been relatives on there, only one with a german connection, born in germany 1868 then went to America. Hertas surname wasnt listed so i typed it in and came up with a list of 12 loebensteins there was one Alois loebenstein who, according to his Cert. of Citizenship, was born Germany on Oct. 12 1865 or 68 (writing is unclear). The Cert. was issued by Cuyahoga County. wherever that is

Having just read on here that another name for HEINZ is HENRY, I decided to go back to the US White Pages for another search. Well, I don't want to get too excited because this could just be a total coincidence, but I found this chap: Boley, Henry J 801 W 181 St MANHATTAN, NY 10033 Then I clicked on the tab that said 'More information on Henry J Boley' and found this: HENRY J BOLEY 86 NEW YORK NY So - he's an 86 yr old chap living in Manhattan New York. This would mean he was born c1920. Ok - what do you all think - should I be really brave and write to him? I'd have to be ever so tactful. Nerves are rattling me now!


Karen Report 22 Jun 2006 12:56

Wow Athena, I`d say yes write to him, he can be ruled out then if it isnt him

Hi Athena perhaps we should write and ask if he had a friend Julius Weinberg and if he ever knew Herta, perhaps then we could tell him of the suitcase being found after 60years and the story in the paper. What do you all think. Carol


♥Athena Report 22 Jun 2006 13:15

Hi Carol Was just about to start drafting a short letter to him. Was going to post it on here before sending so you can let me know if it sounds ok. Unless you think we should hand it over to the Lambeth researchers to continue on with - maybe they would even telephone him. Let me know what you think we should do. He's quite an elderly man now so I wouldn't want to be giving him any major shocks.


Toni Report 22 Jun 2006 13:19

What a shame he doesn't have an email address. It will take ages to hear back from him. This is an absolutely fascinating story. I wonder if he knew what happened to Herta. Imagine if he didn't know and has wondered all these years and finds out now. Keep up the good work. Toni

also shown at his address is a Howard Boley b 1956 and a Karen b1955 might be his children or perhaps his son and wife.!

Maybe! it might be a good idea for the Newspaper to ring Heinz, to check if it is him or not, it might come better from a Newspaper, if you know what I mean.....As soon as I first read this thread, I knew that suitcase wanted to go home lol......Lilly


Victoria Report 22 Jun 2006 13:22

I say yes, write or ring. By the age of 86 everyone has had their fair share of hardships and traumas. And if this is the right Henry we certainly know he has. Your letter/call will surely be one of the nicer things that will have happened to him. Victoria


Elizabeth Report 22 Jun 2006 13:25

Someone has got to contact him. After this time some closure would be a blessing, particularly if he didn't know and waited for her for ages.

You lot, what are you like? Well done yet again!!!!!!!! Just a thought, because whoever contacts him (be it you lot or the archive/newspaper people) it'll come as a shock to him after all these years, so..... what about contacting one his children listed? They could then perhaps enquire about it very gently with him? Well done again (and again and again and again). Snowdrops


Karen Report 22 Jun 2006 13:40

Lol i bet carol didnt think it would get as far as this, (6 pages)


♥Athena Report 22 Jun 2006 13:56

Hi - I'm almost finished with the drafting of the letter...but having just read the last post (Snowdrops), maybe I should address it to one of the other names in that household. Shall I change it, Carol? I keep thinking that maybe I should pluck up the courage and just RING them - maybe ask to speak to one of the others in the family. I have done stuff like that before when I was trying to trace living relatives from a certain branch of my tree - ended up having a wonderful conversation with a 90 year old man who wasn't who I thought he was but who seemed to enjoy the chat all the same LOL I'm quite happy to send this letter, but think of the LOOOONG wait we shall have for a reply! Are we that patient? Erm....nope!!! Probably not LOL What shall we do then? Write - or call?


Karen Report 22 Jun 2006 14:00

Call be quicker, i dont think i can wait weeks for closure on this story if he isnt the one then it`ll take a few days to find the right one i think.


♥Athena Report 22 Jun 2006 14:05

...just what I was thinking, Karen. This could just be a bit of a wild goose chase that I've started here LOL (sorry if it is - I know we'll all be disappointed). But at least if we can rule him out then the GR Detectives can go on with their searching... Only thing is, folks, I am off to a flamenco show tonight after work, so I won't be able to call until tomorrow (oh, and what's the time difference? Don't want to be calling them in the middle of the night LOL). If you can't wait till tomorrow - if anyone else wants to take the plunge and give them a call, feel free - just let us know on here that you're going to do it otherwise that poor family might end up with half a dozen strange phone calls later on LOL
