Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech ASCHERMAN of Bohemia #austria-czech



I am researching the Ascherman families of Bohemia on behalf of the family of a friend. (Decendants of
Nathan Ascherman who lived in Chicago.) In the course of my research, I have come across several other
Ascherman families and their descendants >from the same area, and some who believe they are related but
are not quite sure how. I am hoping that we can find out how the families are linked. Below I have gathered
information on several different families, along with some individuals. I tried to list the families in groups
below with a space between each family group

Please let me know if any of these names are familiar to you, and if you have any more information about
how they might be connected.

Very truly yours,

Sasha Mitchell, Asheville, NC
