Does anyone know of a list of ships which were sunk in San Francisco Bay / Harbour when the great earthquake struck in 1906? I have reason to believe the man I am researching was a sailor on such a ship but happened to be ashore when the ship went down. He was apparently in uniform and because of this was ordered to help in the aftermath of the earthquake and fire. I believe he may have been on a British Mercantile ship.

I am looking for any members of my family and ancestors of Klindtworth from Germany. We have limited information on our ancestors. Heinrich "henry" Klindtworth and his older brother Joseph came from Buxtehude, Germany in 1874. Joseph was killed later in the 1906 Earthquake in San Francisco. At this time we are looking for a wife that he may have had, and any children. Heinrich married a Caroline "Lena" Hoff who was from Germany. They had a son and many other children as well, but Joseph married Erica Wulff. Many of our members have lived in Ca, ND, SD, Minn, Germany, Conn, OR, Mass, and Tx, and all over the place:) I do know what Fredrick Wulff is my ggggfather and he was an officer in the German Army in the mid 1800s, He was married unknown to us who she is. They raised the family in Schleswig Province, Preussen Germany. Fredrick was a diplomat from Germany to Denmark. He had a son named Ludwig Wulff. We have no info on him or his wife: Antonette S. they met at a party in Denmark. She was the daughter of a diplomat from Spain and she was polish and Spanish, they married in 1886. I do know they had children as well, one girl was Erica Wulff. We have no info. on her either. I am hoping i may be able to find any information on any of our ancestors. I would appreciate any info you may have or think u have... If possible and u think their may be a connection please email or mess me. We still have family in Germany. Their is also family with the names: Blair, all of the above mentiond, Simundson, Nygard, Smith, Barta, Emerson, Johnson, Schoenhit, Bryon, Bondel, Vervell, Thompson, Werven, Hartman just to name a few. I know we still have tons of family in Germany, Sweden, and Denmark and it would be wonderful to be able to share with my children the joys of having a wonderful family tree :) I appreciate your time & Happy Holidays to all!!!!!Cathy Klindt-Cobb
