Hi Pat,

Are your Roth's Catholic?? I ask because there are Roth's in Soufflenheim, FR and a big Alsacation community in Newark, NJ during that time.

I am researching the Zettwuch, Strack, Jaeck, Gross,Herzig, Stauder, Meister, Reis lines and they were from Soufflenheim (the majority), Roman Catholic families attended St. Mary's in Newark, NJ.

Please e-me at

Sincerely yours, Kelly Vogel Cooper
