      Hello Frank,

      I found out a mill archiv in Berlin and got in touch with a Jürgen
      Wolf (email: muehlenwolf@...).
      He found out that in the 1920's were been 10 mills. He wants to know
      if your grandfather was the owner of the mill or the renter of the
      mill. Then he can look up in another archiv. It is possible that the
      papers are destroyed in WWII.
      Do you still have any address, street or district in Berlin ?
      You mentioned that your mother and sister lived in Berlin after the
      death of your grandmother. Do you have old letters with post address?

      Best regards from the very cold germany
      Mechthild

          Dear Mechthild,

          I believe my great grandfather owned the floour mill. If you have a list of ten could you check the owner names? What are the chances of there being more than one Behrend?

          I really don't have any correspondence from Berlin. My great aunt came to the USA in 1924 to bring back my Mother and aunt back to Buffalo, NY as my grandfather had remarried. On the ship manifest, my Tante Liesbeth gave her sister Kate's address in Berlin. Would the parents live close by, who can say? I will try to locate that address.

          Thank you again. We are at about 0 C. here with several snowfalls. Next one is Monday.
