Holzapfel / Holtzapfel & Heise in Philly
I've been trying to research my grandmother's family and have had some success.
My grandmother was Ruth Pauline Holzapfel (I have older messages on this forum).We recently discovered that on a couple of the census reports it is spelled HOLTZAPPEL and also HOLTZAPFEL, although my grandmother's documents all say HOLZAPFEL.
If your Holzapfels (however you spell it) are from the Philadelphia area, if you visit the Heise web site, you can see we have set up a couple of pages for the Holzapfel connection with the info we found so far.
We'd love to share info and fill out some more branches of my grandmother's family tree.
There are links to Ludwig Heise's children, if you click on Adolph HT Heise, the Holzapfel link is on his page.
