I am so excited to finally find my mothers family in Irvington. I remember Arno, he lived with my Aunt Louisa Rapphold and her son Willie in the apartment over the shop. I visisted her many times. My mother was Amelia, her father was Carl Friedrich. My mother had one sister (can't remember her name right now, I know she married and lived in Canada. My mothers mother died young and her father remarried. I don't have any names.
Where do you live? I live in Pennsylvania, I have a sister and three brothers everyone all over the country.
Do you have the church records from Oelze? Aunt Lousia gave them to me years ago. I would be glad to send them to you. Can you fill me in on any other Friedrichs still in the area?
We kind of lost touch when Aunt Lousia died, her son Willie I wasn't great on communicating.
Please e mail me direct it's firstname.lastname@example.org
Can't wait to hear from you.
