Have you any additional information on F.L. Fischer. I believe this is my great-great uncle Frederick Louis Fischer. My Fischer ancestors supposedly had a brewery in Nevada or Sierra County in the late 1800's. Any info you can provide would be very much appreciated. Thank-you

Surnames: Dreyfuss, Thomas
Hi: I am a beginning computer user, genealogy researcher, and very curious about my grandmother, Louise Thomas, born 1889 in Nevada City. Her parents were Minnie Dreyfuss Thomas and William Thomas, born in England.
She always told me to take care of an old book, "Nevada City l88? I have the book, which is falling apart but it really doesn't give much information re: the Dreyfuss children of which there were many I believe, nor what happened to the Thomas children after their mother died.
Thanks for any help you may give. Myretta

Surnames: Weiss
My great-uncle Warren Emil Urquhart was a grandson of Emile Weiss and Caroline Lampe of Nevada City, Nevada County, California. Warren's father, also named Warren, married Sophie Weiss. Her father,Emile Weiss, was born in Alsace, France in 1823 and was a 49er eventually settling in Nevada City, where he operated a brewery. Warren E. Urquhart (the grandson) married Lily Hansen (my grandfather's sister)and they had no children. As a result I inherited a number of personal and official documents which include the marriage certificate of Emile Weiss and Caroline Lampe, baptismal certificates for two of their children, Emile Weiss' French passport as a wine merchant dated 1846, and his US naturalization papers dated 1855. Also included with the above was his obituary (1891)with excerpts from the funeral eulogy. I am very interested in learning more about this family. Any further information would be greatly appreciated.

My mother in law was a Fischer from Northern California, and now resides in Nevada. Due to her age, I am reluctant to pass her informantion on to anyone, but I would be happy to try and contact her to see if she can add anything. Her sister is still alive also, so she may be some help.
Regards,
