I am doing some geneology work for my close friend who is 90 years old. Her mother's maiden name was Chmahl?! But I'm not sure of the spelling. Her mother's first name was:Johanna. She was born:21, Sept.1887 in Germany somewhere. She married Lorenc Schmitt who was born in 1881 and disappered:10,Oct.1911. Was listed as missing in action. Never found a body. My close friend was an only child and wants to look for relatives or more info on her ancestors. Can anyone relate to this or help me out? I'd really appreciate it!
