Ken,My Bernadina (not sure how to spell it) or Bertha Nemitz was born in Germany (possibly Pommerania) She had her first child, Gustav Friedrich, in 1865 in Germany. I am not sure if she died (but if so, it happened in Germany) and that is why her husband and his 2nd wife came over to USA in 1883, with his first 4 children (mother= Bernadin) (listed in my first message).
Do you have any Nemitz in your Bertha's family by this name and being from Germany with the 4 kids I prev. listed? Kathy
