I don't know much - only stories I was told as a child. My grandfather Leonard Schratt came from Oberammergau Germany - left early 1900 (01, 02?). He build a small castle called Ammerburg there (still there). According to my mother (his daughter - born 1911 - now deceased) he was related to Katherina Schratt - I seem to remember great aunt. He had four children - all dead now (Ada, Cecelia, Frank and Ernest) - wife was Barbara. I have three sisters and one brother - many cousins. Any connection?
