All we have is that my great grandmother was Emma Franz. She married first Frederick Bartling and then a man named Ott. She had 2 sisters, but all 3 lived in an orphanage for a while. She was adopted by a family called Engle. Searching for info on Emma's sisters Elizabeth & Catherine.

Can you give a little more info about the family. I have an Elizabeth (Lizzie) Franz, born 1860ish in Alsace Lorraine. She lived in Baltimore, married there (Charles Furlong) and moved to New York around 1890. Does this fit in at all. It is said her father's name was John..........but I have no other info and cannot find out much about her.

Could you possibly tell me who her parents were or anything further back? My family is here in Ohio - that diesn't seem to matter much when you step off the boat. Thanks - Heather

I wish I could tell you more. The only thing I know is that her father's name was supposedly John (probably Johann). This info from her death certificate.

I have come across 2 of the families mentioned in this thread in my research. Have no idea if they are related. Some kind of certification needed. I believe my Lizzie was in Washington DC in 1883. My only lead. All help appreciated.
