  1. Betty Carpenter says

    Who is Rosalia? Was she Anton Eichenseer’s daughter?

  2. Hi Betty!
    Thanks for the comment. Rosalia (nee Brand) Orlet is Bertille (aka Tillie’s) sister. She was the older sister of Bertille. At this point in the journals, Rosalia has just given birth to her first child, Marita.

    Bertille and Rosalia also have an older brother, Henry, who is mentioned quite a bit in the journals.

    Take Care,
