Hi, I am a Weber, searching for August Wilhelm Weber that married Caroline Berger. I also know a Gruenwald family in Wiscosnin. Mark Gruenwald's family was from near Milwaukee Wiscosnin. Mark used to live with us for a while. If you want further information, please contact me. Thanks

My husbands grandmother was a Gruenwald from Milwaukee. Her grandparents were Michael and Laura (Lora) Gruenwald (Greenwald). I understand there originally were four Gruenwald brothers who came to Milw. Can you connect us with them? Michael died in 1926. They had 9 children.

Hi:
My grandmother, Grace Koch Fritsch, had a cousin that lived in or near Milwaukee, WI named Alma (I think her maiden name was Mundt). Alma was married to a Gruenwald.

I am not familiar with any Alma's, but I understand there were 4 brothers who came to Milwaukee area about the same time, all with families, so there is probably a connection. I guess if you knew the name of your great-grandfather it would help. Thanks for your reply.

Concerning research in southeastern Wisconsin: Grünewald/t Grunewald/t Grunwald/t Grünwald/t Gruenewald/t Gruenwald/t Greenwald/t are the variations found in the fairly new resource: "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items". It covers 1844-1950. Indexing continues today.

Surnames: Greenwald Greenwaldt Knoske Pirschel
Jack, I am able to check the master file of my index very easily, but I generally don't post full entries on the message boards. The only possible match for your list are multiple family death notices for an Eleonora Greenwald in both morning and evening papers (contact me directly for the entry). I have over 60 Greenwald & Greenwaldt entries, but no entries or references for the Knoske or Pirschel names.

My project covers 1844-1950 and my primary interest as a 6th gen. German-American is Milwaukee's German pioneer community and their descendants. In the early years (1844-1880), and later years (1930-1950) death notices and obits. are sparse. Regional German language papers were published into the 1990s (maybe later), but are not locally available on microfilm after 1950 (here in Milwaukee).
