Their other son, Bernie, was already in Cincinnati, and their daughter, Ilse, would arrive in 1944. Selli and Oma Julchen had an uncle, Sam Gutmann who had settled in Cincinnati many years before.

This image and the other similar ones in this album are from a website created by Sebastian Funk: http://data.synagoge-eisleben.de/gen/
Although the site has much information there is a lot which is missing.

Only my Oma Julchen Pfifferling (1894/1963) and her sister, Meta Berg, are shown here. They also had 2 brothers, Heinrich and Salomon (1886/1903).
In 1962/63 Meta, Julchen, and Heinrich all passed away 6 months apart.
Sharon Trosch, who is the granddaughter of Heinrich, has told me that there were actually 9 siblings in the family.

This is the second inside page of the Trauer Album. I want to add that if you may notice that I have his first name spelled two different ways in this album, it is because in my mother's story she has her Opa's first name spelled Maier.
