LOOK UP -Helfrich in the Banat
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Your Helfrichs are almost certainly from Gr Jetscha.
In the passenger ship records one finds
Franz *1903 to Philadelphia
Josef *1905 to St Louis
Michael *1902 to Philadelphia
Your guys may be one or more of the above. See
Further data on these families can be found in the Gr Jetscha family book by Hans WIkete.
Not to dump on you, but there have been a rash of poorly composed queries on the list lately. Those looking information should take care to post carefully composed requests that contain
details so far as is known in an organized fashion. Sketchy and incomplete data makes answering such queries a research problem in itself. Subscribers should keep in mind that poorly drafted inquires many times do not elicit a reply.
Finally, I might note that the given name Angela is not very common in Banat localities except for Gr Jetscha where it gets passed down through generations with the Godmother at the time of baptism. So your Banat heritage lives in you not only through your DNA but also in your given name.
Sorry to be so preachy.
