RE: Dreezer Family
Hi Alison

Thank you so much for the information. One can only assume that Joel snr and Sophia faced many personal problems and the only cure was to live and bring up their children as being Christian.

Unfortunately, looking back at the information about previous generations via censuses and various websites, we can only obtain "raw" data.
We have to fill in the gaps about peoples personal lives, either by "inside" family knowledge or by just making a reasonable guess.

We will never know the total truth about our past relatives, and perhaps it is best left that way. We just hope that they had happy and fulfilling lives.

Dreezer Family
Hello Alison
I have today amended the memorial of Woolf Dreezer on "Find A Grave" with the information that you kindly provided.
I am puzzled because i have made a preliminary look at the background of Joel senior (Woolf's brother), his wife Ruth Alice (Sophia) and their children Charles and Caroline Alice and not found any Jewish connection.
Perhaps i have been looking in the wrong places!
Do you have any information on their places of burial/cremation? (Charles already known).
Many thanks
Regards Peter

RE: Dreezer history
Hello Alison,

Thank you so much for replying to my message and providing such interesting information.

I have today in a spare moment added memorial records on Find A Grave for all the children of Woolf and Betsy Dreezer plus some pictures where possible. These can be obtained via links on either records of Woolf or Betsy.

I would be delighted for you to use any of my pictures.

Kind regards

Dreezer family
Hello Alison,
Thank you so much for the wonderful information that both our Dreezer families are connected.

I am rather busy at the moment but at some stage in the future i will email you regarding the family tree that you have produced in consultation with other members of the family.

Meanwhile, regarding the two brothers Woolf and Joel snr, i would appreciate knowing if they had any siblings and the names and details of their parents if known.

Many thanks
Regards Peter

RE: Charles Dreezer
Hello Alison,
Many thanks for your message regarding Charles Dreezer. As far as i am aware Charles is not related to my Dreezer family. I just changed the picture of his cemetery to a more pleasant one!

My great uncle is Pvt Joel Dreezer memorial no: 56511759. My grand mother Leah Dreezer (married surname Steinberg) was the brother of Joel.
If you investigate the memorial for Joel and the various links, you will be able to see my Dreezer family. If you see any connection between both our Dreezer families would you please let me know.
Kind regards
