Help looking for Schappe Family
« on: Friday 11 January 19 19:15 GMT (UK) »
I was having a hard time trying to find out more about my great great grandmother Anna Elizabeth Schappe. I'm looking for anything in regards to where her family line spread out, as all I was able to find was that she was born on 10 MAR 1876 in Canada (supposedly french canada) and died on May 24th 1945. The only other tidbit I could see was the name of her father Maximillian Shappee, who may have been from Quebec. I think there are different spelling variations of the last name, (Schappe) but if anyone has any insight, it'd be appreciated. Thank you

There is a section in the brown at the bottom of each RootsChat page under "your tools" called "surname interests" - you can add your own surnames of interest in case anyone comes along later researching the same surname.

Thank you for the tool information for the surname search, I'll see if I can find anything from there. As for where she died, she passed away in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. I think also another variation of spelling was Shappel

That's them! Is there anything pertaining to Anna's father aside from just his name? or a birth town / providence? If not, that's okay and I can work with the information given. Thank you kindly!

Sorry - just Canada. Mother no known name.
