Rosa Emanuel STERN was the mother of my father's older brother, Hermann
HEUMANN's, wife, Hedwig STERN (1913-1982).
I am trying to find out when Rosa went >from Germany to Shanghai, China,
which I suspect was 1938 or 1939, and when she emigrated >from Shanghai
to New York, which I suspect was 1947 or 1948. I would also like to know
the name of the ship she used to come to the U.S. She was born June 6,
1879 in Olpe, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.
[I have searched for Rosa STERN and for Rosa Emanuel coming to the U.S.
and have not had any success with those searches to date.]
I would also like more information about her husband, Nathan STERN, who
was born Jan 3, 1877 in Meinerzhagen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, and
died in 1941. I do not know if he died in Germany or in Shanghai. He had
9 siblings, and I only know the names of two of them, Emma and Jakob,
who both died in 1921. His father was Levi STERN (1833-1919) and his
mother was Henriette EMANUEL (1839-?).
While I suspect that Rosa EMANUEL and Henriette EMANUEL were related, I
do not know the relationship, and would appreciate it if anyone can fill
in the blanks for that relationship if it exists. Since they are 40
years apart by age, I suspect Rosa was a niece of Henriette, but I do
not have any details on the Emanuel family of Olpe, Germany.
Thanks in advance,
North York, ON, Canada
