O.K., here's what I tried to send you earlier.

I have documentation evidencing 6 generations, (including my children). This dates to 1875, however, I believe I have info dating to my great-great grandfathers father's arrival here in 1850.

Supposedly the family started its American history in Cleveland. At some point in time, they moved to Milwaukee, Wi. and might have had something to do with a brewery, (Schlitz?).

My great-grandfather then moved the family to Chicago. My Grandfather was born in 1903, (Chicago I presume), had 1 brother and 3 sisters. He and my grand-mother had two boys.

Let me know if you have anything.
