      Hi Folks,

      I've just joined this group......hoping to learn something about my ancestry on my paternal grandfather's side. The only info we have
      on him is his name, Frank (or Franz/Ferenc) Xavier Klipsch, born
      November 19, 1875, in Weisskirchen/Fehertemplom/Bela Crkva, in
      what was then part of Hungary. He came to the U.S., to St. Louis,
      Missouri, around 1890. Am not sure of exact year or date, but the
      1900 census says he was "Na" in 1890....am assuming that means
      he was naturalized that year. As far as we know, from what my mom
      and her siblings told us, years ago, he came here alone. Mom and
      her siblings are all gone now, so we have no one who knows any more
      than what I've just stated.

      I've been going through the ship passenger lists, among other things,
      but have had no success in finding any Klipsch, other than his younger
      brother, Wilhelm, who arrived at Ellis Island in 1901. By that time, my
      grandfather was married, with several children, in St. Louis.

      I know the name Klipsch is of German origin, and figure Grandpa's
      ancestors were Germans who settled in the Banat region in the 1700's,
      so I checked into the "Germans to America" books (years 1888 - 1891),
      but found nothing on the name of Klipsch.

      I have the name and address of a lady in Germany that is working on
      a "Familybook" of the town, but unfortunately, I don't speak or write German. Two translators said they would translate my letter for me, but then didn't.

      If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would be most appreciative. I just don't know where to go from here.

      Thanks, and God bless.

      Diane Tilley
