SUBJECT: Anna Specht from Berlechinger, Baden-Wurttenberg,
My name is I'm trying to gather some information on the Specht family who moved from Germany to NY in the 1800s.

She married Wilhelm Waldman in 1884. Any connection to your family "Specht"? I'll gladly share what information I have.

Adam Specht , (this may be a middle name)
I am looking for an Adam Specht ,(this may be a middle name) who lived in Juniata County, Pa. in the 1850's . He married a Mary (Polly) Baumgardner and they had a son named John Henry and a daughter Rebecca. John Henry moved to Mifflin County in 1877. I am looking for any link whether it be in Germany or America. There are a few Adam Spechts from Snyder County, Pa. but have been unable to connect. I feel intuitively that his first name may have really been John Adam Specht. Also he apparently died and left Polly a widow who later married a W.R.D. Sizer from Juniata County. Any info would be appreciated.

SUBJECT: Catherine Specht
She supposedly came to the US in 1851, but I found a listing in the book, Germans to America, on: Cathar, Specht, [age] 17, [occupation] farmer, [from] Bavaria, [ship] Germania, Harve to New York, [arrived] 19 Jan 1854.That would be about right.her birth year was supposedly 1836. Also, we think we have a listing for her in New York's 1855 State Census,
plus one for the German immigrant she married -- both living and working in Orange County, NY. Their first child was born ca, August 1857. they were Presbyterians, but we can't find a record of their marriage. The only other Specht information I have are two old postcards which a descendant has. One dated 1906; mailed from Brooklyn, NY, signed B.A. Specht. The other no date or postmark signed Clara Specht.
Send to Specht ancestor at their home in Marlboro, Ulster County, NY [just over the line from Orange County].

Born in Duluth, MN of Shawn Specht - of Alex and
Dorothy Specht.
Many relatives in Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin...
Does any of this ring a bell? Probably not, but Specht is such an uncommon
name, just thought I'd check...
Also...Regardless of whether or not we are related. I was told by a German
woman that Specht is Deutch for "Woodpecker" (or something along those
lines!) I take that bit of info as being true. Do you know anything of
