Europe / Re: trying to understand german death notice for Wilhelm Diedrich
« on: Monday 06 August 18 00:38 BST (UK)  »
Hi

You misunderstood some things.

Auguste Diedrich, née Schnur, was the wife of the deceased,
and they had a daughter (her name is not mentionned).
There is not mentionned a daughter in law (Schwiegertochter in German language).
The date mentionned is not the date of birth of Auguste or the deceased person.
It is the date when this message of his death was written.
I think this death notice was published in a newspaper.

Hi Ross

I have just found an interesting publication about emigrants from Poschiavo to Australia.
They took the information from the family register of the San Vittore parish in Poschiavo.

There are two Benedetto Crameri, one (*1837) emigrated with his brother Giacomo Antonio (*1834) and their deceased father was Bernardo. The other was named Benedetto Giuseppe (*1854) and his father was the deceased Pietro Crameri.

There are some letters from men of Poschiavo who emigrated to Australia in the newspaper "Grigione Italiano" of the 18.12.1857:

The State Archives of Graubünden have some interesting genealogical records and documents.

Hi

You can find this marriage entry at familysearch, maybe you will also find some census entries there.

All Canadian Census information and documents you can also find here:

Hi

I have been told there is a record of his death in Michigan 12 JUL 1937  Detroit, Wayne, Michigan, USA.  Have not seen that record.  If spouse George passed in Michigan, is that were Elizabeth passed as well?

You can find death records for Michigan here:

Other Countries / Re: Any good resources for German genealogy?

Hi Samuel

For birth, marriage and death records less than 100 or 120 years ago you have to ask at the civil registry office of Gemünden or maybe at the archive of the town if there exists such an archive.
For birth, marriage and death records further back in time its important to know to which religion they belonged to. The catholic churchbooks of Gemünden should be at the Diözesanarchiv Würzburg but their records are not online. I don't know where the lutheran churchbooks are held or if they are already online on archion or ancestry. If they were jewish there are other research possibilities.

Hi

What kind of research did you already do concerning this family in New York?
Did you look at all censuslists on familysearch and did you find them there?
There are also many newspapers from New York online at Fulton History
and at https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/ maybe you'll find more info there.
