    i am searching for information on Sister Mary Filelia.
    i responded to a entry under SSND “…do you want to find a sister?” i received no answer and i cannot find this query again. Sister Fidelia’s parents were Charles Ferdinand and Mary (Braun) Gartmann. She was probably born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, USA. She was at the following locations at the time there was a death in the family:1935, Superior, Wisconsin, USA; 1944, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA; 1958, Arcadia, Wisconsin, USA. i am doing a geneology of the braun heritage. her grand parents were John baptist and maria (sommer) braun.
