German SIG #Germany INTRO - Loewy family Berlin and the Netherlands #germany

Hi GerSIG,
I have just joined GerSIG. i have been a member of JewishGen for about a
year. I am an intermediate genealogist but a novice with Jewish genealogy.
I am married to Dutch girl with the LOEWY surname.

I have a website
www.rhubarbleaf.com/loewy/index.html
with the details of our history. We are looking for Katharina Rosa LOEWY
born 14 April 1883 in Berlin Germany came to the Netherlands in 1905 to
give birth to Ulrich Georg LOEWY.

Ulrich Georg was born on 30 March 1905. The father was unknown. The child
was known as Georg and was adopted by George Johannes Christiaan EICHORN,
a business relation of Katharina Rosas father.

After the birth of (Ulrich) Georg, Katharina returned to Germany and was
never heard of again. I have done some research as to what happened to
Katharina. We have no evidence of anything. I have checked a lot of
Holocaust records to no avail. I have also checked a Jewish genealogy site
and have no definate answers. There is a more than resonable chance though
that Katharina Rosa LOEWY did get to America.

Katharina Rosa is the name that appears in documentation recently
optained. But She was always refered to as Kate Rosalie. On Ancestry.com I
have found the following record:

Surname LOEWY
Given Name ROSALIE Middle Name - Sex FEMALE Birth Date 01/05/1882
Death Date 08/03/1961 Birth Place GERMANY Death Place LOS ANGELES
Social Security # - Mother's Maiden Name KAISER Father's Surname LOEWY

While the dates of birth are not identical, they are only 50 weeks apart.
I am looking for contact with ancestors Rosalie Loewy (1882 - 1961).

This website www.rhubarbleaf.com/loewy/hist-photos.html contains photos
and a signature of Katharina. The signature has been obtained >from the
Dutch authorities and was extracted >from Katharinas Immigration
registration.

If anyone has any ideas or leads please contact me, I would be very
grateful.
