Any other info
by: Suzele

Hi Leslie,

It's always good to give as much info as you have available. Dates etc.

Places are already really great!

You could probably dig around and find something by looking in the records of those two towns. Bouxwiller isn't that big. Mulhouse is a city but not a really big one.

You may find what you're looking for even without knowing the dates (if you don't know them).

And wow Bouxwiller is on the opposite end of Alsace from Mulhouse!
Makes me wonder how that happend.
They're at least 2+ hours apart.

Happy researching!

Tracing Grandfather
by: Leslie

Of course dates are useful! Grandfather Emile was born 25th June 1881. His father was Ernest Albert Kiehl. Mothers name possibly Margaritter,but that is a little uncertain.
Emile is believed to have travelled to England from Switzerland in 1914.

Any info will be appreciated.

Hi Leslie,
I am sure that we belong to the same family. Emile Kiehl is my Grandgrandfather. He was born in Bouxwiller at same date. His mothers name was Margaretha. Up to now, I didn`t know his fathers name. Emile was married to Melina Montfort, his first wife. They lived in Carouge near Geneve-Genf and moved to Alsace. I have a Foto of his 2. wife with their child: Harold Armond Kiehl... I am really so excited! I am searching for nearly 25 years to know more about my family...I would be so glad, if you contact me....Greetings from Bavaria, Germany

Interesting, do you have information of Melima Montfort.

Date of birth/death/marriage for me to verify

Name of wife 2 would be really helpful
