"Looking for information on Berthold Schmidt and his family in the Milwaukee area. Berthold was born in 1842 (place unknown), died in 1912 in Milwaukee. Wife's name unknown. Had at least six children: Jacob Bartholomew (my great-grandfather), Elizabeth (married Geiskopf), Herman, Edward, Josephine (married Grabler), and Rose (married Resch?). Maybe had more children (I have a family photo of a Julius also). Please contact me if you know anything of Berthold or his children."

Berthold Schmidt's family placed his death notices in the local German papers. There was also an obit for him (brief or detailed) in the Catholic weekly. These are indexed in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). Luckily, it's easy find a match for a "Berthold" who died in 1912 because there are over 3500 entries for Schmidt in the current data file. There was also an obit with photo for a Julius Schmidt published in these papers in 1929.

Indexing Milwaukee's German newspapers continuously since 2007... helping to access our historic German-American culture.
