Hi thread,
Has anybody had any luck with the info I posted a while back (from a different pc as Dan)?
I am from Chicago, but have spent the last 20 years living in Erlangen (military). I know my way around pretty well and speak fluent German. If I can help any of you in your search, just post something here and I will try to check back occasionally.
Best of luck to you all!

I am looking for a Christina Ermuk. Not sure of the spelling. She corresponded with my mother during the time that my father was over there in 67 or 68.

She informed my mother that she was pregnant and I was trying to find out if she had the baby, and if so, do they want any part of knowing us.

My dad was in the Army. I'm not sure of the base, but will have that information later today.

I have not had any luck with finding anyone from the orphanage but have any luck yet with contacting anyone from there. I am also looking for an August Menzl that may have possibly been in an orphanage in that area. The only name I remember my parents talking about from the orphanage was a Maria Freiburger? and she would surely be deceased now!

Tschus!

Sara,

I was adopted from an orphanage in Erlangen in 1959 and Maria Fieberger (not sure of spelling) was in contact with my parents also. Just starting my research, wish you luck. If I find out any information I will send it to you.

I too was adopted from an orphanage in Erlangen. Born in 1959 and came to USA in 1961. It is my understanding that Ms Fieberger was employed at the orphanage and also involved in my adoption. Have you obtained the name of the orphanage?

Hello,
My mom was born in Erlangen in 1959 and was put in an orphanage there. Her adoptive parents took her back there when she was 13 in 1972--they were in touch with the same woman you mentioned Mrs. Freberger. I was wondering how to go about looking for information on her birth mother?

I too was adopted from an orphanage in Erlangen in 1961. I was born in 1959 as Karin Rinehold, not sure of spelling. Maria Frieberger was also involved in my adoption. Wondering if you have found any information regarding the orphanage?
