Everyone here as been very helpful so I thought I would try for more help.
I have a Maria Arft married to Frederick Schutte in my family tree. These people are my 2nd great grand parents with Frederick being my direct relative.
I also have obituaries from some old family stuff I found. One is for William Arft (died 5/17/1934), Herman J. Arft (died 2/22/ 1967), Walter Arft (died 2/5/1941) and Gretchen Arft, wife of William Arft (died 12/6/1939). All mentioned where most likely born in Germany and died in the Rochester area.
The issue is that I am trying to make a connection between Maria Arft and anyone that I have the obituaries for. I have seen a Wilhelm Arft with several siblings and believe that he may be a sibling of this Maria Arft in my tree. My confidence with this is still not very high and I am just looking for a little help on this.
