Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
Is Urban related to Fred and Oscar?
- Curious genealogist

A: Dear Curious Genealogist,

Oscar spells his last name "Mayer" since his immigration to the United States in the mid 1800s. He and his brother Gottfried established their butcher shop together.

Fred Meyer was adopted in 1999 by some Kroger character, and has seemingly lost conection to family history. Who knows where he came from!

As for Urban, he shares common German ancestry, but is not closely related to either the Meat King nor the Super Market Sultan listed above.

Sorry to burst your genealogical bubble! We all need to get out of our bubbles anyway...

Yours,

Horatio Meyer
