Looking for information on my gg father, Conrad Fritz, born abt 1884 in Brooklyn. His parents were ?Christian and ?Margarethe Fritz of Germany.

Conrad married Julia Seidler, lived rest of years in Brooklyn. Had seven children: Margaret, Matthew, Dorothy, Julia,Joseph, Rose and Conrad.

If any of the above sounds familiar, I would appreciate hearing from you.

I am also searching for information related to the Fritz family of Brooklyn. I am trying to locate a CHRISTIAN FRITZ who immigrated from Germany before the early 1870's. He is my great-grandfather. I am told that he married my great-grandmother named ANTONETTE, maiden name unknown. They had at least one child, my grandmother MARY FRITZ. Have you run across any records of them? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bruce,

Have little info on my family. I have located a Christian Fritz in the 1890 NY directory. He lived on Robbins Ave and was a meat worker.

I think that this may be my ggg grandfather since my grandfather and great-grandfather all worked in the meat industry. This may be a stretch , but it's all I have at the moment.

I know that my ggg grandfather was Christian Fritz. He came to the USA before the birth of my gg grandfather, Conrad. However, my ggfather's death certificate indicates that his wife's name was Margaret(he).

I do not know of any children known as Mary. I will keep in touch in case I happen across any connection.

By the way, I do know that the family lived on Knickerbocker Ave in Brooklyn.

Since lasting posting, I have found that my gg-grandmother's name was actually Antonia Stolz, so, there may indeed be a connection. If so, Mary Fritz would have been the sister of my great-grandfather Conrad Fritz. Conrad married and remained in Brooklyn until his death in the late 60's.

Antionia Stolz, widow of Christian Fritz, is found in the Brooklyn directory found on Ancestry .

Marge,

Sorry that I didn't reply sooner. It apears that we just may be related. My grandmother Mary Fritz had a brother Conrad "Cooney" Fritz. My 91 year old mother says tat her "Uncle Cooney" left NY when she was a youngster and never was heard from again. Most of the Fritz and Vogel (married name) lived on Knickerbocker Avenue and other areas of the Canarsie sectin of brooklyn until I was in my early 20's. Now, the line has moved all over with many in the Tampa Bay area of Florida or New Jersey.
Do you recall your anyone talking of Great-Aunt Regina? She was known as "Aunt Ricka", the spelling may not be exact? I can send you sme of the family breakdown that my 92 year old Aunt Caroline made up of hr childhood in Brooklyn that mentions names. Let me know.

Best to ya,
Bruce

Marge,
I just spoke with my mother and was corrdcted on some information regardin my Great-Uncle Conrad "Cooney". He did marry a woman named Julia and stayed in Brooklyn for many years. It appears that they lost contact with Great-Uncle Conrad over the years though. I guess that this makes us distant cousins?

Bruce,

What a great surprise. I just talked to my mom, who has little recall of any of her Fritz relatives, although Regina rings a bell with her.

I have very little on the Fritz family. Conrad Fritz (my great-grandfather) was born on February 19, 1882. I believe he was born in Brooklyn. His father was listed as Christian Fritz. Although his mother was listed as Margarethe on his death certificate, her name was actually Antonia Stolz. Christian died sometime before 1889.

Conrad Fritz married Julia Seidler. They had 6 children: Margaret, Conrad, Matthew, Joseph, Rose and Dorothy. Margaret is my grandmother.

They lived at 198 Stanhope Street, just off of Knickerbocker Ave. When my grandmother married she and my grandfather (Christian Kester) bought the house next door to them.

Julia Seidler Fritz died in 1936 and Conrad died in 1964.

I am not sure who in my familywas so anti-social, but they did not seem to keep in touch with eiher side of the family.

With the exception of a few cousins who have moved to Florida, all immediate family has stayed here on Long Island.

Hope to hear from you soon.
