Fany Rosa Kiel (Volk) - Rhode Island
Posted by: Erik Volk (ID *****2969) Date: December 22, 2011 at 18:51:40
  of 198

Looking for anyone who has information related to my great grandmother Fany Rosa Kiel from Tubingen, Germany.

Born: 5/20/1888 in Tubingen
Immigrated around 1912
Married Karl Ludwig Volk and lived in Rhode Island for most of her adult life.

I believe her parents were Paul & Rosa (Hafner) Kiel. She had a sister Mimi Kiel.

I have been unable to find any German lineage even though I have traveled to Germany and conducted searches there. My grandfather Paul Frederick Kiel (later with the adopted last name of Volk) came to the US around 1923 as a teenager to join his mother. He was living with his Aunt Mimi in Goppingen region of Germany up until that time I believe.

Any leads would be most appreciated!
