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.
