Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Is your father Steve Spaethe? And your grandparents VJ & Betty Spaethe? If so, then yes, Fritz is VJ's father. I was able to find out that Franz Spaethe was Fritz's father. My grandpa was Melvin Spaethe, VJ's oldest brother. My grandma Melba, was introduced to Melvin through VJ & Betty. Quite a neat story too! Please email me! firstname.lastname@example.org I wrote a letter to your grandparents a while back, but have not heard from them. I was wondering if they received it.
