I have been searching for Kaufer family and have had limited success.
I recently came across more data:

My Great Grandfather was Salomon Kaufer (spelling >from his gravestone).
He died in 1919. My GGM was Rebecca Steinlauf Kaufer and she died in
1918. Family lore was that they came >from Austria. It has recently come
to my attention that they may have originated in Mokrzyska Malopolskie.
Salomon's father >from gravestone, son of Moses Kaufer.

My paternal GF Edward Kaufer never discussed his family; still not sure
exactly how many sibs he had. Never heard any mention of his mother's
family. My father who is now deceased would have no recollection of his
grandparents as he was born in 1916, 2-3 years before they both died.

There is a Michael Kaufer who married Lillian; no other information.
Kalman Kaufer buried in same plot as my GGparents with no wife; cannot
find anything in Ancestry or other places. I have recently learned of a
Frieda Kaufer who married a Blonder born in 1841 and died in Chicago in
1909. All of my Kaufer relatives appear to have settled in Chicago and
these are buried in Waldheim.

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.
