Surnames: Fischer
There are over 1150 entries for the Fischer name in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). There are many entries for people who lived outside of the Milwaukee area. As with a vital records index, the best use of the index is with a name and date.

I would love to learn how to access Milwaukee German Newspapers. I have relatives that were b. Prussia 1803, 1809 and 1810 who lived in Milwaukee. I have census reports but would love anything more.

Friedrica A. Leitzmann b. 1809
Hermann C. Leitzmann b. 1810
Charles Martin Leitzmann b. 1840
Elisabeth Leitzmann b. 1803

There's more but these are the ones that i'm currently working on.
Thanks,
Mary Beth

Surnames: Leitzmann Hermann Kartschoke Kartschocke Plötzke Ploetzke
There's at least one Leitzmann match to your list (Friederike) in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). Some other surnames linked with Leitzmann are Hermann, Kartschoke / Kartschocke and Plötzke / Ploetzke.

An out-dated printed version of the index is cataloged and shelved at the local library, but I'll also verify entries via email.

August Fischer was my Great Grand Father. Lived in Georgetown MN in 1800's. Maybe this is the same family.

The Georgetown MN August Fischer you refer to is the son of Fidelius and Cecelia (Gulde) Fischer. He married Mary Rose Hoffman and they had 9 children: Clara, Mary, Edward, August, Frederick, Francis, Herbert, William and Claude. I am also a descendant of Fidelius and Cecelia through another son, John.

Re: Leitzmann Plötzke Walzog connections in Milwaukee's German newspapers

Surnames: Leitzmann Plötzke Walzog Kartschoke
In case this is also helpful to your research:
In 1874, Mathilde Plötzke Walzog wrote from Breslau to Mayor Ludington in Milwaukee. The letter was published in at least one of the German papers. She wanted help to locate her deceased sister's (Otilie Selma Plötzke Kartschoke) daughters: Bertha Paulina Kartschoke & Anna Otilie Kartschoke Leitzmann (whom she identifies in the letter as married to Carl Martin Leitzmann).

I've indexed multiple death notices and Danksagung for both the mother and daughter (possibly others like Carl Martin Leitzmann). Mathilde apparently didn't know that both mother and daughter were deceased by 1874.

I don't own these clippings, but indexed them in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
