Didn't realize there were so many Schwerdtfeger's. I'm Robert Louis, I have a sister Ginger, we live in New York, I'm 55 Born in Brooklyn 1953. My father was Carl Robert, his father was Karl..born in Germany. Karl Married Etta - French Canadian - She lived in Queens N.Y. My Father (Carl) born in Brooklyn married Virginia McCann. He divorced and moved to California in the 70's I think, where he died. I think he had several other children which would be my sibblings...sort of. All are dead (except me). I have no real history to investigate other than the above facts. Any connections would be appreciated. Rob.
