Marlise was married in 2005. I do not know her new name and her e-mail address no longer works. :-(
There is a little town in Germany named Haigerloch and there are about 100 families with this name. The town lies in the Swabian Alp region. In the rest of Germany this name is very rare. A famous person with the name Fechter: Peter Fechter was the first person who was killed at the Berlin Wall on 17 August 1962.
Marlise Fechter, from South Africa, notes that Peter Fechter was her cousin.
The Fechters in Knysna, South Africa include her uncle, George Fechter, her father's brother.There are only three families in South Africa with the Fechter surname and they are all related in some way.
