  1. One question to the Berger family in Buffalo:
    Is it possible that we have some identical ancestors?
    One grand grandmother of mine – Karoline Berger – was born in 1853 in northern Moravia near the border to Poland. She has an uncle who was manufacturing silk/cloths in Lodz/Poland. Well, in my family, there is told a story that this uncle of my grand grandmother had got a son (I don’t know his first name, may be Karl?) who at least has been sent to Buffalo/USA. It must have been around the 1870s. - My grand grandmother came to Vienna, married a man named Edmund Scholz. He is the grandfather of my mother. And here in Vienna the progeny is still living.
    Is it possible that we are related?
    I ask you for a short information. Thank you!

  2. The store had all the panache of Bergdorf's and Saks in New York City. My aunt worked in dresses on the fifth floor. I remember going there to wait for her at the end of her shift while my Dad waited in the car on Genesee - I was about six years old. The fifth floor had a huge pillar in the middle and a leather round sofa surrounded it! The elevator operators were all in uniform and white gloves. Back in the day - what you saw at Berger's, you didn't see in any of the other stores. They had the "exclusive" for Estee Lauder. Fond memories of a day gone by.
