I am descended from the Krippner family of western Bohemia and am specifically searching for descendants that immigrated to New Zealand in the mid-1800s. The immigrant was Capt. Martin Krippner, brother of my great-grandfather.
My mother's name is Kathleen Wragg (nee Karl).
Her parents were Cecelia and Francis Karl.
Cecelia's parents were John Krippner and Mary Straker.
John Krippner was a son of Micheal Krippner who had brothers by the name of Martin (Capt) and Hans who sailed to New Zealand on the "War Spirit" in 1863.
I now live in Australia as do my parents. I have a booklet from a Centennial Reunion in New Zealand. Captain Martin Krippner is quite a historical character from what I can see.
My relatives are still living in New Zealand so could probably get more information.

Dear Maggie Webster,
Please proceed to read with interest and exitement.
The Brother of Cecelia Anna Krippner was Arthur Michael Krippner. Aurthur Michael Krippner married Grace Hill
One of their children was Elsie Krippner ( my grandmother )
one of her children was Barbarra ( my mother )
We are living in Australia, Melbourne.
Grandmother and mother and a lot of the relatives still alive. Looking forward to hearing more
I am looking for information on a Krippner family that originated from the same area and were there until at least 1882. This family had a daughter that left for the United Kingdom or United States in 1907 most likely from Germany and probably left Bohemia before March 1907. Thersea's parents were Wenzl and Susan (or Susana). Susan/Susana's maiden name was Schlais or Sclais. Any possible relation here?
Thanks for your time :)
