I am trying to locate information regarding ancestors who emmigrated from port at Antwerp to Philadelphia and then Milwaukee. I know the Friedrich Braun family emmigrated in 1891. I am suspecting that the Christiaansen family and Muenchow family may have also emmigrated from Antwerp. I only know that Lizzie Christiaansen married Henry Muenchow and lived in Milwaukee. They had four children and both Lizzie and Henry died in 1905. The chilren then went to live with Lizzie's parents in Milwaukee.

My grandparents, Joseph and Nettie Meltz arrived in Philadelphia in 1906 or 1907. I do not know what port they left from in Europe. They subsequently, I am not sure what year, moved to Chicago where the family has remained. I know of no relatives in Milwaukee, but I have met some from the Philadlphia area. My grandparents came from the Ukraine. If this is helpful, please let me know.

Leonard is pictured in the yearbook of the 42X class of the 734th Basic Training Flying Squadron at Randolph Field, Texas. He is a flight cadet. I'm not kin but thought this might help someone researching the MELTZ family.

This is an old posting, but if it's helpful to Muenchow family research, the family published death notices in the local German newspapers for both 'Lizzie' Christiansen Muenchow and Henry Muenchow - but in 1906, not in 1905 as the posting states. There were even death anniversary notices published in 1907.

There are about 100 combined Muenchow & Münchow entries found in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).

If you haven't found them in the library already, there are some Friedrich, Friedrich W. and Fred. Braun names among the 1000± Braun entries or references in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items".
