I am also reasearching my family heritage. My ggrandmother was Augusta Wilnina Stenzel. Although at this time I am uncertin of the date, I do know that Augusta's family came to the states from Berlin Germany. After their arrival on Ellis Island in Ny. The family then traveled to Petosky Michigan, where my ggrandmother was born. She had two brothers: Charles(Charlie) and Gustavis(Gus).
Also Three sisters Lavina(Clark), Tilly (Anderson)and Tina (?).Augusta had a sister names Fredrika. This is all the info I have for now, my grandmother has details and I will see her over the weekend. Will share more after i speek with her.

The Stenzel family I am referring to is from Illinois. The name Frederika has a ring of familiarity to it, but that may be because my g-grandfather was Frederic(h)(k) Wilhelm MEYER, and my grandfather Paul Adolph Stenzel married his daughter, Mammie. They had three daughters and one son, my father.
One of the daughters' name was Frieda Anna Emilie Stenzel. Whether or not there is a relation, I can not say. You decide for yourself.

My ggrandmother was Augusta. Stenzel was her maiden or married name. I'm not sure which. She was born in 1863 and died in 1939 in NY. I have no more information about her or her husband's name. I do however, know they had a son,(my grandfather) Max William Stenzel who was born on 31 JAN 1894, died in NOV 1963 in NY. Any information you have about Augusta could help my research. I also have an Aunt of ggrandfather Stenzel's countess who came from germany as a young man from near the German/Poland Border. Aunt was Amelia Von Lentz. Any information you have could help my research. Thank you.
