    Notes 
    • Ernest Fausak's delayed Record of Birth shows Amalia's birthplace as Kovel, Russia. A birth certificate (issued in 1906 when she was 17 years old) shows her birthplace as Stanislowow, Kries Kovel, Wolhynien. Amalie's godparents were shown as Ludwig Busse and Amalie Rode.

      In 1999, RF had Amalie's original birth and baptism certificate (photocopied by LEF). Even though the document is an original, it was not completed until 1906 when Amalie was 17 years old. It may be that the document was required for Amalie to leave Stanislowow, Volhynia and return to live in Pelsen (or Polsen) Germany until emigrating to America in 1912 at the age of 23.

      According to family lore, Adolf Fausak was said to have returned to Germany in 1912 to bring his bride-to-be to America aboard the SS Kronprinzessin Cecilie, which sailed from Bremen Germany. The vessel arrived at the Port of New York on 4 Dec 1912; Amalie's entry record can be seen but Adolf's can not. (It may be that he did not in fact sail with her.) She was detained and then discharged to the Traveler's Aid Service, suggesting that no one met her arrival. Her destination was her "half-brother" Adolf Fausack (sic) at 142 Morris Street in Jersey City. (The original entry said "brother"; the "half" was added later in another hand.) Amalie's relative in Europe is shown as her father Jacob Fehlauer of Briesen, Posen, Germany.

      Amalie married Adolf Fausak in Jersey City NJ on Jan 1913. Her brother Hermann Fehlauer attended her wedding and apparently preceded her to America.

      Her first name is also spelled Amalia. Her last name (as given on her daughter Ottilie's death certificate in 1916) appears as Fehlau, confirming numerous other instances where Fehlau and Fehlauer were used interchangeably.

      Amalie's SS number was 366-68-5335 (issued in MI). On her SS application filled out in 1972, she spelled her mother's name as Reimer and her father's name as Jokub, and listed her birth place as Volina, Russia (Volhynia).

      Amalie was naturalized as an American citizen in Berrien County MI on 17 May 1946 (petition number 3551). Witnesses were Natalie Pechtel and Rheinhold Schmaltz. Natalie Pechtel was married to a brother of Rudolph Pechtel (Amalie's brother-in-law) of St. Joseph MI. RF had the original of Amalie's Certificate of Naturalization (no. 6477969) in 2001.

    This record, written on the day of birth, is presumably Adeline Fausak even though the name is clearly shown as Amelia. The parents may have changed the name to Adeline shortly after birth. This record does not suggest a twin; the child is shown as the 2nd child of the mother (the first being Ottilie, 1913-1916).
