Re: Petrof Piano Provenance - Haas Family (Anna & Grete) Vienna #austria-czech

Sherri Bobish


There is a probate record for Grete HAAS in Orange County, FL.  Possibly info on a piano may be mentioned in a will.

Search Grete HAAS at this site and you will find the record.  It looks like the documents are not online, so you can order them from the court.  Case # 1986-CP-001637-O

This may not be helpful in your search of the piano, but Grete arrived in NY on 24 Jun 1938.  Her full name Grete Frieda Anna HAAS.  She was a doctor of philosophy.  She left behind her father Mr. J. HAAS at Neustiftgasse 55.  Grete was going to her Uncle Philipp HAAS, 910 Riverside Drive, NYC.

In October 1938 when she applied for naturalization Grete lived at 375 Central Park West.

Good luck in your search,
Sherri Bobish
