ETTA BUCHTEL'S PLACE

Updated August 10, 2011

About Our Family Research


Information I have collected on ETTA BUCHTEL, the mysterious woman who married my grandfather, ALFRED GEORGE MALSON, on May 5,1911 in Oakland, CA. Was she the enigmatic ETTA PLACE whose true identity remains one of the last great mysteries of the American west? Maybe one day we will know conclusively.

My main genealogy home page is at the Family Tree Maker Link below. My Roots Web WorldConnect Page (also accessible through a link below) has over 15,000 names, including the known family of ETTA BUCHTEL, and is easier to locate individuals in than the FTM page.
