Sadly after decades of searching I could find no more on my Senft/Morgenstern family. I tried Family Tree Maker, Ancestry.com, and many posts. Not one reply in near twenty years. Less explainable is the silence of Schoenberger’s and Schinnagl’s who are well entrenched in Bavaria and my information went back to my great grandparents. One was a mayor of Innsbruck and the other a priest in Munich. So sad! A picture link to my tree is on this page.

Sadly I have little further to add to my Senft family descriptive in Czechoslovakia as I never got to know my grandparents. They died when I was seven and I had already been transplanted to Vancouver B.C. Canada at the age of five. My father would never speak of those years and the only thing I do remember him volunteering was that they had a horse farm raising heavy draft horses that his father used in transporting goods. Basically his family were ‘truckers,’ before the advent of the motorized vehicle. This lifeblood and profession extended back to the time they lived in the Ukraine. Gypsies???
I do remember asking my father if they were Clydesdale’s, knowing them from the Budweiser commercials and he said no. They were some Polish or Lithuanian breed. Loosing this farm and the horses would have my grandfather dying after the farms seizure way too early and my grandmother would die of heartbreak four days later. All I can add is a nice link to European horse breeds.
