I am trying to find my grandfather, whom no one in the family will talk about. His name is Friedrich Emil Vogt b. around North Rhine, Westphalia, Germany. He had possibly two children: one, my father Erwin Vogt and
two, possibly Wilhelm Vogt. Wife of Friedrich was Anna Emile Hubert. Friedrich may have been a German POW held in Fort Clinton, MS. Any information will be greatly appreciated and will exchange any info that I have.

My father was from Austria,or Germany, I knew him as William but it could have been Wilhelm, I was 6 when he died and I was raised in foster care. I know my father spent time in a labor camp because he had a tatoo on the inner aspect of his arm and his neck. We were never allowed to talk about where we came from, no family member ever came forward when he died. I've lived all these 46 years wondering where I came from, I only know his mother was Anna. I lived in the Port Richmond area of Phila. when my father was alive, I now live 4,000 miles away.My Bill Vogt died Nov. 1959. Maybe we are related? Good luck in your search Bill.

Thank you for getting back with me. My uncle Wilhelm is still alive and lives in Germany. The only known member of my family, aside from me, that came to this part of the world was my grandfather Emile and that as a german prisoner of war. I will keep searching for my ancestors. Who knows we may cross paths again and find out we are related. May your search be fruitful.

Hellow Kim,
I am also researching the Vogt family and in doing so I have come across an Irene Smith who is researching your names. Her parents were also killed in the 2nd WW. Her Wilhelm was born in Karlsruhe in 1839 and Maria was born Hanover 1844. They had 7 children. Please contact me if you want further information. Regards, Jenny

I have now spoken with your Aunt and she is delighted that you are interested in family history. She is not on internet but I can pass on any message. She asked me to tell you "good on you". She has managed to find out quite a lot recently about where they came from in Germany and I can forward 1881 census showing your ancestors in London. Wilheim and Maria Vogt aged 37 and 19 respectively coming from Baden and Hanover. Please e-mail me direct and I shall reply.
