Seems I am the first to start this one off! I am looking for anyone related to my mother in law's father, Wilhelm Julius Richard Kauschke b Rothlach Kreis Bunzlau 23/12/1888. He married Martha Selma Anna Grun in 1911. He was a judge by profession and died trying to get to his family at the end of the war. Of all his children, only my mother in law, Gudrun, and her brother Fritz Wilhelm survived the war. My mother in law was the youngest. She remembers that he had brothers and sisters, some in Berlin, but she cannot remember their names. Wilhelm's parents were Julius August Kauschke and Emma Anna John, according the family tree book that survived.When I look on the IGI I see names that look like these and from the same area (Schlesien/Silesia: PRussia), but I cannot prove any relationship. Would appreciate any help. I can read and speak German. Ich kann deutsch.
