I am looking for a lead to my father's family in Germany. I am particulary interested in finding information about my great grandfather Markus von Aspern and my great grandmother Katherine (Catherine) Boeseh/Bosch etc...
My grandfather was Max von Aspern. His wife was Allie Bell Gilchrist. They lived in Fort Edward and Utica, New York.
Max's father (according to his social security application) was Markus von Aspern and his mother was Catherine Boeseh. Of course the spelling could be Boesch or Boeseh, or as it is spelled on the Marriage lic for Max and Allie, Bosch or any number of other variations.
According to Max's naturalization papers he came from Itzehoe, Germany.
Max was born 23 May 1886 (according to his declaration of intention to become a citzen). However, in that same document he tells us it is 1904 and he is 25 years old.
That means he would have been born in 1879.
If he had been born in 1886 he would only have been 18 years old in 1904. However, it states on his Social Security Application and his death certificate that he was born 26 May 1886.
He had a sister Anna who remained in Germany until at least World War II. My father remembers his father (Max) getting letters from her after the war.
Can anyone help me with this family. I would like to find my father's family in Germany.
