I am looking for information on the death of my great uncle Wenzel Maxa who was born in 1881 and possibly baptized in Simsfilz Gemeinde Stephanskirchen in Bayern Germany. I also believe he was killed during the Great War. Any information about Wenzel Maxa would be greatly appreciated.
I cannot find a Village/town/city by the name of Simsfilz. Can you look at your documents again.

Hello Renate, I looked again it is Stephanskirchen Simsfilz Kreis Rosenheim. Sorry about the confusion. Hope this clarifies. These old documents are hard to read some times. Chris W
well I found the town of Stephanskirchen. BTW was Wenzel Maxa catholic?
And what do you mean by "he was killed during the great war"? Meaning WWI ( 1914-1918 )
I did find a Wencel Maxa on Ancestry.com; he was a PVT; his fathers name was Joseph J Maxa and lived in Cedar Rapids Iowa.
The place is Simserfilze.
Wahnsinn Anita, daß Du diesen Ort gefunden hast.
since Anita found the place I will write a email to the town of Stephanskirchen to find out more about Wenzel Maxa.
