About Our Family Research

My father's name was Hans Adolf Schwarz, he was born on the 2/9/1918 in Esseg, Hungary/Yugoslavia. His brother is Heinrich Albert Schwarz. He was born on the 10/5/1917 in Szekesfehervar, Hungary. Our grandmother was Anna Agnes Schwarz(nee Reinsch). She was born on the 29/9/1896 in Sagan/Schlesien, Germany and resided in Berlin. She was one of seven children. 2 boys and 5 girls. I only know the names of six siblings. Lilly, Else, Albers, Schenk, Selma and Agnes. Selma married a man named Blumenfeld and had a daughter Edith. She married Fritz Wegener who was a director/agent of Circus Hagenbeck in Hamburg/Stelling. Agnes was a trick rider with Circus Hagenbeck. I think the owners at the time were Carlos and Wilhelm Hagenbeck. She also performed with Circus Paula Busch, Circus Knie, Circus Krone, Sarrasani Circus and in 1921 she was with the Moscow Circus. There was a cousin named Elvira. Our uncle had a horse stud in Torglov/Pommern. My grandfather was Otto Friedrich Albert Schwarz, born on the 5/6/1888 in Rothehutte/Harz and resided in Berlin. Anna and Otto were married in Berlin/Mitte on the 12/12/1921 and were divorced in Berlin on the 7/8/33. They were both trick riders in Sarrasani Circus. For a short time they owned Circus Schwarz. After their divorce Otto opened a restaaurant for artists near Friedrich Strasse in Berlin. He also had a radio shop in Wansbeck/Berlin. We also know that a relative on the Reinsch side was Albert Reinsch, born 28/6/1840 and died on the 10/7/1888, was possibly my great great grandfather. He was a director for artistic people.
