Quite some time ago I listed an enquiry on the Pfalz Genealogy List for my great great grandfather by the name of John MULLER born approximately 1837 Kaiserslautern, Pfalz, Germany. He emigrated to New Zealand, married and lived here for the rest of his life.
As I suspected, my request didn't yield many results but I did receive one reply saying
when I had more details to try again and the person had also put a couple of MUELLER
searches he had found in the email. One of them was the following:-
Johannes MUELLER born 14 Apr 1839 Kaiserslautern.
Father: Johannes MUELLER
Mother: Catharina SCHUFF
I have continued trying to obtain more details and ordered the death certificate for my great great grandfather. And when I received this I
noted that the given names of John Muller's parents are the same as the ones in the search above except that the death certificate I received doesn't have his wifes maiden name.
What I am hoping is that someone could please do a search of the Johannes
MUELLER who married Catharina SCHUFF and see if his occupation was Carpenter
or Cabinetmaker as this seems to have been an occupation carried down through the generations. Any help you can give as far as my search goes would be very much appreciated as I would like to make the link to my german ancestors.
I look forward to hearing from you and Merry Christmas.
