December 8 – Sophia Ditz

On December 8, 1955 the European Council decides on its emblem: til today the blue flag with 12 golden stars is known as symbol of the European Union.

And beware of the typo. It was December 8, 2005 when a trader in Toyko got the order to sell one share of the company J-Com for the price of 610,000 yen. But instead he sold 610,000 shares for one yen each. “The most expensive typo of all times” created a financial damage of abt. 300 mn Euro.

On my family tree we go way back into the year 1792. That’s the year Sophia DITZ was born on December 8 in the parish of Hohenkirchen, Grandduchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

I don’t have any information on her parents, so cannot tell if she had siblings either.

She was married to Johann Christian BÖTTCHER, a day labourer from Schildberg, Grandduchy Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

So far I’ve found three children for the couple, born between 1813 and 1819:

  • Maria * May 14, 1813
  • Johann * October 10, 1814
  • Hans Carl Christoph * July 11, 1819

The 1819 census shows her living with her husband and the three children in Degtow, Grandduchy Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

And that is the last trace I have of her. Couldn’t find a death record for her yet.
