Re: WOHLGEMUTH from WEST PRUSSIA, Germany
Hallo Herr Beutler!
Eduard Wohlgemuth married with Bertha Wohlgemuth (born Joachin) are the parents of my grandfather Fritz Eduard Wohlgemuth. They lived in Danzig. My grandfather was born in Danzig (Stobbendorf) in 1905. He came to Brazil, Santa Catarina State, city of Blumenau - a german colony -, in 1926. At this time, Danzig was known as Freie Stadt.
The city of Blumenau (south of Brazil) is a city known by the german community and traditions.The Blumenau's Oktoberfest is one of the biggest fest in Brazil. It is similar to the München's one.
In Blumenau, my grandfather married with Erna Maria Wohlgemuth (born Kaltenbach). They had a son, in 1935, called Horst Wohlgemuth, my father.
After WW2, we received news that Bertha Wohlgemuth had runned away to Denmark. Gertrud Wohlgemuth, my grandfather's sister, married and changed her surname to Fabricius. But that is all we know.
My father married Maria Luisa Barbieri (Wohlgemuth) and had 4 children. Eduardo, Julio, Carla and Felipe (me).
If someone (distant cousin) read this story we would be glad to make contact.
