Are you asking for help with something here? otherwise it just seems to be a random posting  :-\

You've at least one thread for this person on the Photo Restoration board but you don't seem to have grasped the concept of saying 'thank you'  >:(

The best place would be to use the section on "surname interests" at the bottom of each RootsChat page under "Your Tools" - instead of random posts.

Gerd came roughly at the same era as his Cousin Roland Kulhanek (1936-2016), who arrived in the SW Chicago area (Oak Lawn, IL) sometime between 1954-1970. Roland worked in construction. He was known to be a fun and jovial man. He joked about picking the grapes in Benningen am Neckar, Germany, as a child. He was a 1st Cousin to Gerd Edwin Paul Kaess (1947-1972) and attended his funeral. Roland slipped in the driveway of his home and this is what precipitated his death. His obituary (Feb 17 2016) is found in the Chicago Tribune. Roland's birth surname may have been Assenheimer. Roland (and his two siblings) was adopted by Vaclav Kulhanek (deceased) and he was a son to Berta Freida Kaess (1915-1992).
