Bochum has not forgotten Jupp and Änne. I am sure they’d be happy about that.
Tag: Kappius family
There is so much to know about our ancestors, and the small things are often the most wonderful.
This week in 1882, our (Great-) Grandfather Kappius was born. Happy Birthday, Great-Grandpa Josef!
Nobody would have called our 2nd and 3rd great-grandfather ‘Franziskus Xaverius’. In his hometown Haaren, he would have been known as ‘Reelen’s Xaver’.
Today we remember Willi Wagener, who passed on in 1986.
Today we remember my father Jupp, whose family relations were a closed book for us for a long time.
This week 128 years ago, our 2nd (and 3rd) great-grandmother on the Cappius side passed away at the age of 68.
Aunt Gertrud was born this past Sunday 110 years ago.
“Tante Rita” felt strongly about our family identity bound up with the house name Reelen.
On Monday, 19 August 2019, Cousin Katharina passed away at the good old age of 89. With her, we have lost a family historian to whom we owe much.
