Surnames: JAEGER, MUSSLER, KRETSCHMER
Seeking descendant/info of JAEGERS of Milwaukee.
Oswald JAEGER b.c. 1857 Austria was son of Franz JAEGER and Helen KRETSCHMER resided in Milwaukee as early as 1800. Oswald had siblings by these names: Anna, Frank, Bertha MUSSLER, Bruno, Charles and Clemens. Oswald became a Milwaukee baker and the bakery seems to have passed on to his son, also named Oswald. I believe the family was Catholic, some burials were connected to Holy Cross Cemetery. Would be more than pleased to make contact with any related family member. Thank you.

There were obits. with photos for Oswald Jaeger in Milwaukee's German language newspapers. It's possible there were death notices or obits. his parents for Franz (d. 1886?) and Helene too. There are about 500 occurrences of Jaeger and Jäger indexed in the growing resource "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).

Once you fill in all the data, and gone through all the historic English language newspapers for clippings, the German papers may have some surprises for you. Particularly if you have several layers of German-American ancestry in the area. Contrary to age-old advice within the local genealogy/library community, these papers are not copies of the old Milw. Jrnl. and Milw. Sent. (and local German-American cultural groups refuse to believe they exist).
