I am looking for information on Helen (Krueger) Maass. She had a sister Jeanne (Krueger) Rapp and at least 1 brother, I think. Helen married Otto Maass and had one girl Virginia Louise (Maass) Newall. Do you know of any relation or have heard of them?
Thanks,
Jen Fleck

Hallo Manuela - Mein Deutsch ist nicht mehr sehr gut. Ich benutze Babylon.

Welches Vornamen suchen Sie?

Gibt es andere Nachname außer Krueger?

Welche Jahre?

Welche Städte?

Danke!

(For any readers perhaps not understanding this, I (hope!) I am asking for the first names, any other last names besides Krueger, what time frame and what cities.)
