Stuart Charlton Thank you Karl-Michael, but I don’t understand the German..Strassenkatalog = Street atlas ? I will try google translate .. The Map shows only the word luchbrucke.. nothing to say what it is or was.. I guess it has some connection to the canal ?

Stuart Charlton OK. Karl-Michael _I checked the map foe An der Luchbrucke, but can only see the label. it is basically the same map location shown on the “Bike Map” I found yesterday.. What is it ? What does it mean ?

Stuart Charlton OK… in the vicinity of or close to.. But what is luchbrucke ? I can only see a field, a road and a canal …

Karl-Michael Sala Stuart Charlton: After WW2, my German mother, Opa & Oma lived “am Heiligenbrunnen” (on/at the sacred springs) & in Iserlohn, Germany there is “an der Langen Hecke.” Some other street-names begin with Im [in the] ___ & an dem = am ___. So what you see might be about right. According to Wikipedia, Langes Luch is a protected natural area. So, “an der Luchbrücke” is probably a road that either leads to, or perhaps runs parallel to, the [Langes] Luch bridge.

It must have been very mind-altering for my mother & father, who will soon have not one, but two boys to love & raise into the tremendous humans they later would become: David Ronald Sala & Karl-Michael Sala!

WOO-HOO! I am on Cloud Nine{:>), for, among other absolutely stunning data, documents & images, I just burned images of ALL the addresses at which resided my mother, her father, grandfather & great-grandfather–clear back to their births!{:>). Also, although the birth took place in Freising, near München, Deutschland – Germany, I also burned a 2ndary or tertiary source of a birth notice of my hero older brother, David Ronald Sala, father of David Sala, Daniel Sala, Darrick Sala, Christy Lee Sala, Brandi Sala. It also mentions the precise date that she marries my father & more… [Kassel, Germany] Einwohnermeldekartei, 1880-1945

Karl-Michael Sala of frustration. It was a challenging, fun & great case. It is interesting that the only Studer found having immigrated in the precise, target year (1868), had one of the given names of each person of the target couple. The ages matched within 2 years for him & exactly for her. In the original thread, there were other data, documents & images for support of our hypothesis. The two main German Genealogists in this community declare that your case has been cracked & solved. To prove or disprove it, you should now go to the Stein, Baden parish registers on microfilm. I believe you have some precise birthdates. Go see if you can find their births/christenings & allow some leeway on the year of birth. Regardless of what you & I think, in the Old World, the STUDERs might have been Catholic, Jewish or Lutheran. This, based on a perusal of all Studer entries from Baden in the FSL system. As was discussed in the original thread, convoluted as the FB system is (it was not designed for us), along with your newness to navigating the thread & its comments & images, this case has yet further research you can view & yet do. I’d have loved to have seen just who was a part of the household in the 1870 Census, but in spite of all my research prowess, I could not find them. Do you know (for certain) where they might have been in 1870? There are 2 locations called Stein in Baden. While that crucial image was found on, neither you nor any other known fellow Studer descendant had found it as an attachment, hypothesis or option{:>)
