L o o k i n g   f o r

descendants of:
-my paternal great grandmother-
Her parents: Hinrich Vollmers (*1811 +bef 1878)
and Metta Neumann (*1814 +bef 1878)
born October 7, 1853 (probably around Balje, Germany)
who married Heinrich Wilhelm Schult called *Bruening* (1850-1880)
on June 12, 1878 in Hamburg, Germany
AND 1882 in Hamburg GUSTAV ADOLF RIEDEL, born Nov 5, 1850
in Langenbielau, County Reichenbach, SILESIA

Her story: Christiane was forced to put her 2 children by Heinrich Wilhelm into an Institute of the Poor, called "Kostkinder Institut der allgemeinen Armen-Anstalt" in Hamburg, where they were put up
for adoption. My grandmother Erna Hennie Marie was adopted in spring 1882; evidently
Anna Henriette Wilhelmine was not yet. Christiane remarried in 1882 in Hamburg to
Gustav Adolf Riedel and together with *her* (I *assume* that since the ship records mention
a 4 year old daughter called *Anna Riedel*) -her legal name would have been Anna Henriette
Wilhelmine Schult called Bruening- unless she was adopted in the meantime by Gustav A. Riedel,
which could have been possible. The three of them immigrated on 11/22/1882 to New York, USA,
with a ship called "RUGIA". (The NY ship passenger arrival list is dated *about* December 10,1882,
however, no destination point was given).

1. Gustav Adolf Riedel
2. Heinrich Willhelm Schult (called Bruening)

L o o k i n g    f o r: 

descendants of
- my paternal great grandaunt -
born October 22, 1878, Hamburg, Germany
(Standesamt Hamburg Nr. 2/Reg.Nr.: 4865)
Her parents: Heinrich Wilhelm Schult called *Bruening* (*1850, +1880)
and Christiane Friederike Vollmers (*1853-+?)
Her adoptive father: Gustav Adolf Riedel (most likely but not certain)
Her sister: Erna Henni Anna Marie Reimann
(Schult *called Bruening) (1880-1943) 

Her story: Anna Henriette Wilhelmine and her sister Erna Henni Anna Marie were given up
for adoption in spring of 1880 to a State Childrens Home called *Freie und Hanse-Stadt Hamburg
Kostkinder-Institut der Allgemeinen Armen-Anstalt* in the city of Hamburg. It could not be found out
*who* adopted Anna Henriette Wilhelmine -if anyone at all. She was probably taken to America with
her mother Johanne Christiane Vollmers who had married Gustav Adolf Riedel in the meantime.
