Nostadt, Apolonia: (nee Kroeker or Kroker)    Husband was  Jakob Nostadt Later research has found that Apolonia's maiden name was Kroker.  Born 9 Nov. 1901 Kaisersdorf, Galicia.  Died 15 April 1996 Pittsburgh, Erie, PA.

Nostadt, Helena In searching the Social Security Death Index (SSDI), I came across a Helena Nostadt SSN 011-26-7728 born 5 Oct 1899, SS issued in Massachusetts, last residence: Buffalo, Erie, NY zip 14214 died Feb 1981. Since both Rudolph Nostadt and Helena were living in the same area and with Nostadt as their surname, I am thinking that maybe Helena and Rudolf were husband and wife.

Loppler-Löffler (EWZ# 103576 and 103593):  I found my grandmother in your 1939 Resettlement Records database, Adele BERWALD  ‏(I58105).  I wanted to give you a correction.  You have her married name as Loppler.  The correct name is Löffler.  Her husband's name was Paul.  I'm very interested in where you found her marriage information since it's not included in her Stammblatter record through Family Search... 
Oh, and your record for August Loppler, ‏(I58063), needs his last name corrected to Löffler as well.  That is the spelling on his Stammblatter record on Family Search.  I think he may be Paul's father, but I don't feel absolutely certain.  August's wife in his Stammblatter record isn't correct when compared to the information on my grandparent's marriage certificate.

Johann Hirschfeld (EWZ# 152899 and family)
I am the son of Emilie Hirscheld, 26.03. 1928 - 20.06.2019 in Rosenfeld.  My grandfather Johann Hirschfeld 24.01.1895 - died 1974 in Brittheim. My grandmother Katharina Hirschfeld nee Dümmler, 19.03.1899 d. 1966 in Rosenfeld.

The children of Johann and Katharina Hirschfeld were according to information from my mother:
Franz Hirschfeld 07.05.1921 - died in Rosenfeld
Rudolf Hirschfeld 14.09.1925 died in Tumlingen
Emilie Hirschfeld 26.03. 1928 - 20.06.2019 in Rosenfeld
Karl Hirschfeld 16.06.1930 died in Bickelsberg
Ernst Hirschfeld 13.09.1940 died in Brittheim.

The children you also listed as children of Johann and Katharina Hirschfeld, Marta, born 06.03.1923 and Marie, born 26.03.1925 were not children of my grandparents. Furthermore it is biologically improbable that my grandmother gave birth to 2 children in 1925. children 6 months apart.
