Hi, I dont know if we can help each other but my gradfather frederick Michel came to New York in 1914 with his parents Fritz and Lena Michel. I dont know if they are your family, but I dont anything about my grandfather before he and his parents came to the USA. I have a copy of their natualizations papers. I hope we can help each other.
Thanks Elizabeth Abelbeck

What was Frederick's wife's name? Do you know what his occupation was? I posted another message on this board for this name, and wonder if there could be a match here. The Frederick Michel for whom I am searching was a manager for the American Opera Co. in the 1930's, married opera singer Helen Olheim, and the last I knew was that they were living in Florida in 1969. Do we have any connection?

My grandfather was Herman Michel from Brienz Switzerland who came to California at the age of 16. His father, Peter, was a woodcarver in Brienz.. married to Margaret Grossman Michel. I recently acquired my family tree and some history regarding the same. Our current Michel family is enormous as grandfather started a whole lineage here.

My gr grandmother was Barbara Michel from Brienz.
She emigrated in 1869 with her husband,
Johannes Schild, and their ten children, first to
Wisconsin. The family moved to Minnesota after
she died giving birth to children 11 and twelve.
It is a common name in Brienz, but I would like
to exchange information with you.

I was curious if there is a connection here. I am looking for a Yakob Michel and a Eleonora Michel. Yacobs parents were Yohames Michel and Magdalena Michel. Not sure if there is a connection. Eleonora's last name was Pfaindler.
