Where are you located: Canada

Draga Daniel,


  Locuiesti in orasul unde s-a nascut bunica mea Helena (Carolina, Lena) Kraus. Pana sa-mi trimiti email-ul tau nu am avut nici o idee cum arata orasul Viseu de Sus. Mi-ar fi placut sa-l vizitez. De aproape zece ani si inca sunt in cautarea originii familiei bunicii mele. Mama ei se numea Iosefa (cred ca Josepha) DONAT, iar tatal ei a fost Janos KRAUSZ. Ea a mai avut 2 frati: Rezso (Ruldoph) Krausz nascut in 1887 si Agoston (Augustine Emil) Krausz nascut in 1894. Bunicii mei: Johann Kraus (1855) si Josefine (nascuta DONAT, 1857).

Josefine Kraus (1855) a avut doua surori : Helene si Maria.

Carl Weishaupt s-a casatorit cu una dintre acestea, iar Helene (bunica mea) a emigart cu ei in Canada.

  Rudolf a murit in 1941. Sotia lui Rudolf, doamna Maria Magdalena a corespondat cu rudele sale din Canada in jurul anului 1946 dupa razboi. Ea a primit pachete cu mancare de la acestea.

  Cativa dintre barbatii familiei Kraus din Canada au luptat impotriva Germaniei in timpul celui de-al doilea razboi mondial din Europa.

  Stiu despre bunica mea ca la registrul starii civile de la biserica catolica din Iacobeni s-a casatorit cu bunicul, Carl Ignatius Weishaupt pe data de 2 iunie 1906. Helena a fost cunoacuta in Canada si cu numele de Carolina/Lena. A fost botezata la data de 5 octombrie 1890 intr-un oras numit Oberwischau, acum Viseu de Sus sau Felsoviso.

La registrul de casatorie s-a mentionat si locul de resedinta dupa casatorie numit Koschna (Cosna/Kosna).

I am praying that you may be able to help me find moreinformation about her and her family.I understand that you may not be interested in responding but I plead with you that if you are not interested would you PLEASE pass this onward to your relatives. Maybe your grandparents, Aunt or Uncles. Maybe they will havesome information that my help me. Can they check old address books or bibles to see if they had any addresses for Canada? I thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I am lookingforward to hearing back from you, even if you don't know if we are related.

Please read below and I am sorry that I can not write or read otherlanguages. If you respond in German or another language that is ok, because I have people who can help me translate for me.Well I have to admit that I really do not have alot on my Kraus line. Mygrandmother was Helena (Carolina) Kraus (on her marriage records in thecatholic church in Jacobeni, Austria/now Iacobeni, Romania) She was 16

When she married my grandfather, Carl Ignatius Weishaupt on June 2, 1906.

Helena, was known , here in the Grayson/Melville area as Caroline/Lena. She was born/baptized (?) Oct 5, 1890 in a town called Oberwischau, now known as Visue de Sus or Felsoviso. On the marriage record it also states that sheresided in a town called Koschna ( Cosna/Kosna) at the time of the marriage (which I assume she lived there instead of in Jacobeni after theirmarriage). She gave birth to one child who died approx 1904 and then had my Uncle John in 1906, he came over to Canada with her. Her parents were Joannis KRAUS and Joespha DONAT/DONAD.I also think that she had a brother who name is Rezso born 1887 and another

named Agoston Emil born 1894.My grandfather came into Canada in July 1910 via the US Ellis Island andthen traveled via railway to Sask. Helena followed him in Dec 1910 through

Halifax. Bringing with her, my Uncle John who was 3 at the time. I haveheard storied that she had another baby but it died before coming to


Thank you so much!!And GOD BLESS!!!Shel

Dear Daniel,


You live in the town that my grandmother Helena (Caroline, Lena) Kraus was born. Until the email that you sent me I had no idea what your town looked like. I wish I had. The videos are nice but do not show that much of the town itself. I really have little information about my grandmother's family. I have been searching for almost 10 yrs now and still I am at square one with my research. Her mother was Iozefa ( I think it is Joespha) Donat and her father was Janos Krausz. She had two brother's named Rezso (which I think is Ruldoph) Krausz born in 1887 and another named Agoston (I think is Augustine Emil) born in 1894. I have a very hard time finding records on this family. I am going through all the records that I do have to see if I can find your family name if I find any thing I will send it too you. If you can check to see if you have records of the name I have snet will you please send them to me? My father, the last of the my grandmother Kraus's children. The last of 15 is dying of congestive heart failure right now. I sure would love to have some info to show him before he leaves us. Thank you for writing me Daniel. God Bless...Shelley

All that I do have is here other then who her parents were: Johann Krauss and Josepha Donat/Donad.



Name Of Karl's and Helena's children:

Karl's parents were: Johann Weisshaupt and Carolina Rosa Brodacz/ died March 28, 1888 not sure if they were married in Jakobeny or in Einsiedl. Yesterday evening I had checked my books and maps, and I found an other Einsiedl named village, there in Transylvania. The Hungarian name is REMETE, the Romanian is RIMET and it is located under Kolozsvar (CLUJ), in our "West Mountains". I don't know which one is where I should be looking. Although on the jakobeny site on line it says they were miners that were Zipsers.


Johann remarried a Carolina Zaharanski. Rosa's parents were: Carl Brodacz and Joanna Loy and Carolina's parents were: Carl Zaharanski and Joanna Limberger.


Karl and Rosa's children were: (this is from the church records of Jakobeny)


Rosa Born May 21, 1876 Died May 23, 1876


Johann/ March 1, 1881 and died Dec 24, 1883


Karl/ July 31, 1882 died Sept 7, 1956


Anna Maria/ Sept 14, 1884 is a mystery, I have records that she came to Canada along with my Grandmother in 1910. Like my grandmother, can not find any information on her after that.
