My great-great-grandmother, Adelheid Marx was a descendant of the Marx rabbinic family from western Germany. Her husband was Albert Westheim (d c. 1915) and her children include my great-grandmother, Elsa Mühlgay (née Westheim [unknown-1981]) and son/step-son, Paul Westheim.

We think that this Marx family is the same as Karl's for what it's worth.

Family stories and family records provide two conflicting death dates of c.1920 and 1945 and disagree on the place.

How can I identify the parents of Adelhaid Marx?

  • @ColeValleyGirl, I wish. I don't know her parents' names. – Noah from Frankfurt Aug 16 '16 at 18:23

    Such a wide difference between 2 possible death dates suggests that either something has been misinterpreted or that some of the records don't apply to your person. I suggest that you start by re-evaluating what you have, in order to determine how to weight the conflicting evidence. – bgwiehle Aug 16 '16 at 22:10
  • @bgwiehle, that's the problem. All I have are those two conflicting death dates, informed from family stories and records which disagree on the date and place of death. Unfortunately, AFAIK, there isn't anyone living who could clarify this for me. – Noah from Frankfurt Aug 17 '16 at 2:28

    "Adelheid Marx (died c.1920 or 1945, depending on the record) from Western Germany. What do You mean with Western Germany ? Without an area, town/village, it's impossible, to find details – user5499 Sep 3 '16 at 20:34
