Gene Notes

Some random and some not-so-random thoughts on family history.

I have one thing in common with other researchers, we all come across it, the dreaded obituary with no citation as to paper, date or anything else.

Cousin Gale gave me one that went one up on that - no translation. Yes, it was in German. Someday I may discover the newspaper that published it, until then I have this nice scan of it, along with my translation.

  1. Maybe the NYPL has an archive of the Staats-Zeitung? That's the second time in two days I have had cause to think of that paper...I am reading a bio of Nikola Tesla, who wasn't German, but many other local engineers/scientists were.
