Robert Joseph Zapf was my grandfather.My father was Albert Martin Zapf b. March 17, 1904.I am his second son.
I would like to exchange family information with you.Particularly, anything you have further back.We are fortunate to have a copy of Robert Joseph's certificate of birth, obtained from the Nazi German government during the 30's.We also have a few pictures of the family from Illinois.In addition, we have visited Robert Joseph's grave in Alton, Ill.
As a side note, Anna Lee Thomas (Zapf) b. June 1, 1902 daughter of Robert Joseph Zapf is still alive in a nursing home in California.She is an advanced Alzheimer patient and unable to provide any information.However, she is still around!
