Dora Schaffer
« on: Thursday 02 May 19 11:17 BST (UK) »
Hi
I'm trying to find information about Austrian-born Dora Schaffer whose maiden name may have been Sattler.
I've found that she lived in Graz in Austria, owned a property there but may have escaped the Nazi occupation in or around 1940.
I did come across a Dora Schaffer in New York in the US Census of 1940 but can't be sure if this is the same person.
I'm not sure where to go from here.
Any help would be gratefully received.

What is your interest in her?  Is she part of your FH?

I am researching a property in Austria which was registered in her name in the 1940s.

Hi,

(Edited)

I have now removed the publicly-available (I found it via G**gle) link to the local newspaper in Austria in which a person with the same name as the lady being researched was mentioned due to her 80th birthday.

I copied the link here as I thought the Brithday Girl might possibly be a relative.

We are aware that it cannot be the same person but to avoid aggravation in connection with the RC "no living persons" ruling, I have now removed the link. I have sent Ligularium a copy of the link via PM, just in case.

Maybe they are related..?

Best regards,
Karen

Hello Karen
She may be a relation. I will try to make contact with the publisher. Thank you very much for finding this. Much appreciated.
