To add to what this book says about the Jasmers is that Frederick Jasmer and Augusta Gerth married in 1855 in Germany and came to the US in 1872. Mentions that Frederick is a brother to John Jasmer born in 1845 who married Bertha Schreiber, Augusta Jasmer born about 1837 who married Philip Becker and Nettie Jasmer mentions no date of birth who married Ed Brenner. I would think that Michael Jasmer would be Frederick's father and that Frederick came to the US after his parents.

Also mentions a total of 15 children for John and Bertha Jasmer, 2 children dying within the first year, the rest living to the mid 1930's to the early 1970's.

Todd,

We don't believe that Friedrich (Frederick) Jasmer who married Augusta Gerth is the son of Michael Jasmer. The dates don't match.

Go to www.ancestry.com and search for Frederick Jasmer. You will find a reference to a Message Board entry that was written, quite a while ago, by Carol Slack. Carol speculates that this Frederick could be a Cousin or Brother of the Michael Jasmer who lived in Winona County, Minnesota.

The Michael and Anna (Ludcke) Jasmer Family is listed, with their ages, in the 1870 and 1880 Census as living in Norton, Winona County, Minnesota. I have extensive information about John (Johann) M. Jasmer; b.

There are quite a few Frederick Jasmer listings in various databases. The problem is that they can be listed as Friedrich, Frederick, Fredrick or Fred; so, it is difficult if to say if one is looking at information about the proper person.

I thought that I had uploaded complete information about the Jasmer Surname, to the Ancestry.com World Family Tree. However, in checking, I find that some connections are not shown. I've had a problem because of the way that I accumulate information in many different files and then append and merge information that fits together. I need to clean up my Jasmer files and put a master file together that shows everything I think I know.

I'll send you an invitation to join my Extended Family Tree Web Site. You might find some things of interest in the Jasmer Family Tree that is shown there.

Would be interesting to contact the individual that wrote this book on the Jasmers as she lists them as brothers and sisters. I agree that age of Michael Jasmer and Frederick Jasmer that married Augusta Gerth are to close. The lady that wrote the book is Tillie Jasmer Podoll, book was put together in 1987!

I will check and see if Mathilda (tillie) Jasmer Podoll is still living, I see she was born in 1911. My wifes Aunt goes to the same church in Leola in which she was/is a member.

Thanks for your response.

Todd,

I know a woman who attended a Jasmer Reunion in Minnesota; but, I don't know the year or if it is the same one that you referred to.

I'll contact her and ask if she attended the one where the book was given ouf.

Todd,

The Social Security Death Index is a quick way of checking whether people might have passed away. However, it is not very complete for earlier times; because not everyone was eligible for benefits. There are many people who are not included from rural areas because Farmers were self employed and didn't pay in to Social Security.

the book was completed in 1987, the reunion was in 1984.

Is there a way you can transfer files over ancestory.com, I can get it copied and send it out.

Todd,

If the book was published, it probably has a copyright. So, it would be illegal to copy and distribute it.

Does the book have a copyright? If so, it probably has a library identification number that you can tell us.

I'm not familiar with these types of things; but, it seems to me that the person who had the book printed or published, was interested in making sure that the Genealogy Community would have access to it.

My guess is that copies might have been sent to various agencies and groups, such as the National Archives and the Minnesota Historical Society.

If the book was published, it might be possible to obtain a copy on loan from a local library, via interlibrary exchange.

Maybe somebody who knows about these things can help us out.

Rick
