I was told our family was related to Max also. I have no proof. We need to reconstruct Max's family. I checked out of the library the book, "Max Schmeling: An Autobiography". His name is Maximilian Schmeling and he was born 28 Sep 1905, in Klein Luckow, Germany.
There is a family picture in the book, of him, his father mother, his brother,and his sister. He never names his family by name except his sister is Edith. She died in a motorcycle accident when she was 14 years old. His father died before Max began his boxing career. His father was a navigator on HAPAG (Hamburg America Line, a Hamburg-based shipping firm).

My great-grandfather was Gottlieb William Schmeling, born 26 Jan 1843, in Marienthal, Germany. He married Ernestine Kaaz and they had 3 children all born in Germany. 1.Emilie Schmeling, born 16 May 1871; 2. my grandfather, Albert Julius August born 27 Dec 1973, and 3. William Gottfried born 16 Jun 1884. They all came to USA in 1882 and lived in Atchison,KS.

Please send in any of Max's family that you know about. Thanks, Ruth E-mail:
