Leuthold von Nesslau SG

Beitrag von cmbellman5 » Do 10. Mai 2018, 02:52

Fritz Leuthold 1881-1954 worked as a buyer for Jelmoli in Asia.
He and his wife Alice were patrons of the arts in Zurich, Herman Hesse a very close friend.
I am trying to find the parents and family of Fritz and have no leads.
Fritz was buried with his wife in Zurich, see attachment.

thanks in advance
Peter Weinstock

Hi Peter,

Fritz Leuthold was a director of the Jelmoli department store, still existing in Zurich.

A memorial is available at several libraries, at least in Switzerland, e.g. at the Zentralbibliothek in Zurich. You might ask them for a PDF-copy if no other contributor to this forum has similar information.

Peter

Thanks for that info, we have a copy in German.

Fritz spent ten years in Bangkok and we have a number of precious pieces he brought back with him.
We did not know that he was a director.
He was a very private person and we know nothing of his parents or early life.

If I understand you correctly: you have a copy of the memorial of 1954, but this document does not mention the parents of Fritz nor cover his childhood and professional career? What does it then contain on 38 pages?

In general, a memorial is exactly used to give the information you are asking for! Older memorials also contain a biblical reference.

Peter

You are correct Peter , the 38 page book should have what we want but we have only a single page memorial, not the book.
We did not know of the 38 page book until now so thanks, I will try Zentralbibliothek in Zurich as you suggest.

The librarian in Zurich has given me the following information taken from the memorial book.
Fritz Leuthold was born 7 Jan 1881 in Nesslau, St Gallen.
His father was Jakob Leuthold a Stickfabrikant.

Can some one please help me to research and find the family in St Gallen

The Nesslau church register is online - you'll find the baptismal entry here:
Fritz Leuthold was born 07 Jan 1881 in Nesslau-Dorf and baptised 13 Feb in Nesslau. Parents were Jacob Leuthold and Antoinette Schacher.

The parents may have been married in Alt-St.Johann - unfortunately these records are not yet available online.

Another potential source will be the "Bürgerregister" of Nesslau - one has to visit the State Archive, however, to view this source.

If you are lucky, these data are not "too young" for Toggenburgisches Genealogienwerk.
