I was looking over some records for Fred Schatz & Anna Fredericks, and I can see why you have a problem with them. Their marriage isn’t in any records, so far, at Ancestry or FHC, but more are always being added, so don't give up. I did find what might possibly be an immigration record for Fred, but it’s a very long shot. There’s an entry for an 11 yr. old Frederick Schatz, accompanied by F.K. Schatz, age 40. F.K. states he’s been in Toronto for 7 years. They came into Canada through Quebec in Sept. of 1919. There are some differences with the info regarding the ‘place of birth’. It’s listed as England for both of them. The info you have on Fred would make him around 14 in 1919, not 11, and he was born in Poland. The column asking for how many children under 14 might possibly explain the age difference. Maybe age 14 was considered an adult and the fare would cost more, or F.K. didn’t really know how old the kid was. I don’t find F.K. or Frederick listed in the England census of 1911, which makes me wonder if F.K. had some reason for saying their birth place was England. It would be interesting to look at the 1921 Census of Canada, to see if these two are listed, and what other info there might be, but that Census won’t be released until this coming June. Canada is worse than we are….they hold their censuses for 92 years! There’s a Fred Shat (no Z) listed in the 1930 US census in NYC. He’s single and a painter. Too hard to tell if he's yours. I did note that the 1940 census info incorrectly lists Anna as daughter to Adolph Papke, when she’s actually a Fredericks from Emily’s first marriage. Probably none of this is of any use to you, but I thought I'd post it anyway. Terry Bora
