I am looking for more information on Michael Kascher. Where was he born? He lived in Waldhuetten, Transylvania. Did he have any brothers or sisters and what about his parents? I have heard rumors from the family that they came from Flanders but do not have any proof. Although the name "Kascher" means koscher in French.. It is strange that they are the only Kaschers in Waldhuetten and there are no more after they immigrated. I wonder if they were late comers. I also had an aunt that said we were gypsies? I am most interested to find out if we are of Jewish decent. I have found the surname Kascher listed in a synagogue registry in Krakow,Poland and even more Kaschers coming from Prussia on the Ellis Island registry.
Thank you in advance for any help,
