And on my family tree we celebrate the birth of Emma Wilhelmine Friederike K√ĄHLER on November 24, 1884 as the oldest of four children from Wilhelm Heinrich Burghard K√ĄHLER and Elisabeth Dorothea Auguste MEYER in B√ľttlingen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. Her christening was four days later on November 28, 1884 in Diedrichshagen. In the same church she received her lutheranian confirmation on March 26, 1899.
