I would be very interested in what you have found. My grandmother was Johanna Bertha Erber born in 1900 in Austria. Her father was Harry Gustav Erber. During WWI they travelled to London, England where Gustav was an interpreteur for the English--he spoke 7 or 8 different languages. After the war, he and Johanna were tailor/furriers for the Duke and other royalty at his race track south of the London area in England. Johanna had 2 more brothers, Edward and Neville. In 1925, Gustav sent Johanna to Ontario, Canada where she met my Grandfather, William Skene and they were married. My father and his sister were both born and raised in Ontario.
