Is anyone out there who is looking for LANKOW (LANKAU) or HACKBART (HACKBARTH) I dont know where the Hackbart name is from other than Germany can any one give me a clue as to where to start? everything I run across has only Germany listed. The Lankow name is from Mecklenburg one document shows Weintz the other shows Kneese. Im not sure where Weintz is located but Kneese I found is about half way between Lankow, Germany and Hamburg, Germany. Could Lankow possibly be named after them and they stopped in Kneese for a while to earn more money for the trip to the states? The farthest back I have is Joachim Johann Friedrich Franz Lankow Born June 9, 1843, Died October 15, 1922. Married October 4, 1868 in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin to Wilhelmina Ernestine Naatz Born May 8, 1844, died July 3, 1932 both are Buried at Riverview Cemetery Portland, Oregon USA. On the marriage certificate it shows Joachim as born in Mecklenburg, Germany there is no listing for Wilhemina's birth place.

Hello Karin, This is a very neat Web page. I am looking for anyone with the surname ZAUDKE. There are less than twenty families in the United States with this surname. My Great-Great Grandfather Heinrich Christoph ZAUDKE b.1825 came from Pommern to Wisconsin, USA about 1853 I believe. He had a brother Ferdinand ZAUDKE b.1841 who came to Milwaukee, Wisconsin about 1874. Ferninand and his wife Augusta Loppnow (from Wisbu) moved to St. Charles Minnesota about a year later. If anyone knows this name, I would like to hear from them. Darlene Ryan genie@gglbbs.com

Gruesse, Karen! You have a wonderful and informative webpage. I will add two names to your search: Senkbeil (also spelled Senkpeil) and Rosenwald (family originated in Sweden and migrated to Pommerania ca. 1820). Daniel Senkbeil was born 12/18/1850 in Furstenau and married Friederike Wilhelmina von Tzschebotowski (born in Lautenberg 5/20/1857) on September 10, 1876 in Stettin. I realize you have no sources for that era; however perhaps you can locate information on those surnames. Daniel Senkpeil's parents were Christian Senkpeil and Helene (nee Thielmann) Senkpeil. Friedrick J. Rosenwald was born October 5, 1862 "zu Muegenwald Kreis grimmen Regierungs bezirk Stralsund in Pommern" (this entry from our family Bible) His parents were Johann Friedrick Rosenwald, Sr. (born 1839) and Wilhelmina (nee Strodt) Rosenwald (born 1839). Any occurances of these names would be extremely interesting. I am also wondering; do any parish records exist from that era in any of the local churches in what now would be Poland? Are any of the following place names familiar to you: Furstenau, Hohenkirch, Lautenberg? Thank you for your help!

Still searching for ZIEMANN (ZIEMAN) and JANKE (JAHNKE) gg-grandparent's names in Dramburg (Drawsko Pomorskie) and Regenwalde (Resko) Stettin (Szczecin) for years before (1850) in Eastern Pomerania.(See November, 1998). Great grandparents were Johann Ernst Gottlieb ZIEMANN and Fredericka Caroline JANKE. Even names, dates, places for brothers and sisters would help so much to unravel the mystery. Would also appreciate hearing from anyone who has information and will be glad to exchange research data with them. Thank you, Karin, for your dedicated committment to this enormous project.

I am working on my family genealogy looking for original family name Sandhof! My great grand father was Charles Henry Sandhof born in Mecklenburg (Germany), son from Christian Sandhof. Christian Sandhof was married to Dorothy Johanna Kalibb in Mecklenburg (Germany). Christian was from Neuendorf, Mecklenburg - Strelitz born on about June 30, 1803. Dorothy Johanna Kalibb was from Weitin, Mecklenburg - Strelitz, Germany born on July 18, 1808. This information comes from the family Lutheran bible in my possession. The bible is a German language 1856 Philadelphia USA print. Christian and Johanna brought their son Charles Henry Sandhof(f) to Canada in about 1852. Any information to further my research would be much appreciated.

My new e-mail is wogalitz@concentric.net. Searching the following name in Vorpommern: GALITZ, Frederick David, born 27 December 1844, probably Wendisch-Baggendorf, parents Joachim Friedrich GALITZ and Johanna Maria KRABBE. Have located several younger brothers of his in Wendisch-Baggendorf, but not his birth. Perhaps it is nearby as his parents were married in W-B in 1838, but the first birth record is in 1846 and says it is the 4th child of this woman. Is anyone else searching this name?

Hallo Frau Schöpke, ich bin aktiver Ahnenforscher, jedoch habe ich mich noch nicht mit den Vorfahren meiner Mutter aus dem Kreis Stolp befaßt, da ich nicht weiß, wie ich an die standesamtlichen Unterlagen komme.

Ernst Hasse ist 1895 in Wusseken geboren und Anna Gurkowsky 1896 in Lauenburg.

Karin, great page!! I am looking for help in finding my g-grandfathers family. The name I am searching is WEPPNER. G-Grandpa's full name on his citizenship papers is Charles Carl Weppner. He married Ida Mahler, no date given. Charles was born in sept 28, 1853. He was from Sattenhausen, Hanover, Germany. I found a WEPPNER that came from Germany and settled in New York. But I don't think there is a connection. My g-g-grandpa was August Weppner from Hanover, Germany, and g-g-grandma was Louisa Kaim who was from Wolmers, Housen, Germany. Does anyone know where I should go from here? I have run into a dead end. If you could help an email would be appreciated. Thank you again Karin for and informative page!!

Liebe Karin Ich habe Deine Seite nur durch Zufall gefunden und die Überraschung war sehr groß. Deine Seite ist super !!!! Ich habeleider nur geringe Informationen über die Namen: FREHSE,GIESE und VOIGT. Diese Namen kommen in Brasilien, wo ich herkomme, vor. Sie sind Auswanderer aus der Zeit um 1850. Da diese Namen relativ häufig sind, weiß ich nicht, ob Dich das interessiert. Wenn ja, sag einfach Bescheid. Persönlich beginne ich gerade mit der Forschung der Familie ELKE aus Stochow - Camptz laut meiner Eintragungen. Dank Deiner wunderbaren Liste gehe ich davon aus, daß es sich hier um Stuchow - Cammin handelt. Ist das richtig ?? Außerdem würde ich mich freuen über Hinweise über folgende Familiennamen: EHLKE- HENDSCHT- GAUGER - JUCH /JUCKT - STODIEK - WENDT - FREHSE - SCHLETTER - SCHMELING - SCHIMING - TRINKS - WEINHARDT MARQUARDT - COLIN . Eventuell alle aus der gleichen Gegend. Ich freue mich über diesen ersten Kontakt und sage erstmal einfach TSCHÜß und DANKE ! Sady P.S. Meine Web-Seite ist noch in Bau und nur geschäftlich.

My ancestors are spread out from Kulm (HEISE) & Schwetz (SCHWABE) in Westprussia to Kreis Stolp (NUTHACK, BRUEGGEMANN, MICKLEY, RUECKWART, RAATZKE, HOEPPNER, SOPKE, SEILS) & Kreis Buetow (FRANKENSTEIN, THRUN, LI(E)MBERG, TRZEBIATOWSKI) in Hinterpommern to Kreis Demmin (WILLRICH, SAEGEBRECHT) in Vorpommern. I was reasonably successful in Hinterpommern (NUTHACK back to 1705), & Westprussia (HEISE & SCHWABE back to about 1810) but I am stuck at 1877 with my only my grandmother's (Anna Maria Cornelia WILLRICH) birth on December 20. Her parents were Friedrich WILLRICH & Wilhelmine Sophie SAEGEBRECHT. The christening is listed in the Altenhagen church register but no other entries refer to the family although my grandmother had siblings. She moved to Berlin and lost all contact with the family.

Agnes wrote post-cards, from Bad Polzin, Pommern, between 1906 - 1917, to my grandmother Louise Buelow, in Chicago. In the postcards she mentions the names of Wilhelm and Margarita KOEHN and their children Ernest, Freda, and Otto KOEHN. I thinks that Agnes' mother and Wilhelm KOEHN were probably siblings, as my grandmother's grandmothers maiden name was KOEHN (Carolina KOEHN Scheibe.) I have no way of researching this family as my grandmother died in 1923 when my mother was a baby and my mother was raised by her father's side of the family in another state. Anyhelp you can give me would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Paula

I have just begun reseaching my father's family. I was amazed to learn that his father was born in Gruenhof, Regenwalde County. I believe this was in Pommern, Germany. My Granfather came to the United States in 1887 with his wife and two children. He had a brother Paul that I never knew about who also came to the United States. They both settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I would really like to know if there were more children than my grandfather and his brother Paul. My Grandfather's baptism certificate shows that his parents were: Wilhelm Connell, village official and his mother Wilhemina Jaeger. I have found this a very fascinating hobby.

Searching for ancestors(in Germany) of Wilhelm and Otillie Nimz, Emmigrated from Persanzig, Kreis Neustettin, Pommern 1884. Moved to New York State, then Ann Arbor, Michigan and finally to Wausau, Wisconsin around 1895. I have traced the family and many offspring from 1884 onwards. I am interested in family left behind in Germany! As with most of Pommern, Kreis Neustettin was turned over to the Poles in 1945. Poles have disposed of any German records(I was in Persanzig in November, 1998) Question, Where did any remnants of this family disperse to? I have found one Nimz in Dusseldorf, although he doesn't appear to have any information on the family, another in Leipzig, no response!....Can anyone help?

The Soundex suggests that the village might be Schildfeld. They both went to the United States, to Indiana, as young children. They married in Indiana in 1859. Christian's parents were Jacob KRUEGER (born August 24, 1796) and Jacobina LANG (born August 24, 1808) All were born in "Slitfield" Can you help me with birth certificates for any of these people, or perhaps a marriage certificate for Jacob & Jacobina. Or anything at all? I am curious about the village. I was able to find Schildfeld in an atlas. Thank you so very much. Kathryne

Family records indicate it was in Mecklenberg, but it may be in Brandenburg.

Thank you, Karin, for this website. I have found information through your guestbook about several parts of our family. I have this puzzle: According to church records 1823-1883 there were 3 generations of HUNDRIESERs in Neustadt bei Danzig, Brandenburg, now Wejherowo, Poland. On 16 Nov 1862 Elisabeth Henriette Hedwig HUNDRIESER married (as written in church records: "Friedrich Wilhelm Christoph Linow, more correctly NEHLS". She was 20, and he was 28. Friedrich was a Master Cabinetmaker. There were no other NEHLS in the church records. Friedrich must have arrived from somewhere else. Will appreciate advice on where to look next for place of birth for Friedrich NEHLS in March 1824 and names of his parents. Family stories say he may have come from Sweden, but nothing sure. If so, would the name be spelled differently? And where would I start to search in Sweden? Thank you. Patricia

Thank you for taking such an active part in the area of genealogy in your area. My spouse and I recently visited the homeland of my grandfather, Albert Ludwig Frederick v.

Langeberg was born 1873 in Krusenkrien (we drove through the area June 10 and 11, 1999) and his father, Johann v. Langeberg was born in Tutow in 1850. Albert had an older brother, William Langeberg; and the mother was Johanna Fredreka DEDLOW, no mention of where she was born, but my mother remembers her father calling the mother "the Swede".

With your help and Geo-serv I now have much more surety of the locations of Behnkenhagen(Bekenhagen),Boldekow(Boldiko),and Casekow (Cashow). Unfortunately, I too, have erred with Johann Anders - no suffix 'e'. He was born in Behnkenhagen in 1830 and his parents were Jacob Anders and Dora Ba(i)ls. Handwriting for Dora's last name is difficult to interpret. I do not have Johann's exact birthdate nor his parents marriage date. You may suggest how I could enqire about them. Thanks again for your help. Les Sketcher.

Hello! I am amazed at the kindness and caring that exists in this world! Thank you in advance for any information you find - thank you in advance for even trying! Following are my most troublesome "loose ends" in my family history search (1) Frederick MORISSE; born 1816 around Oldenberg - most possible Neuenfeld. He was released from the German Army in 1844 and emigrated to the U.S. in 1848. (2) Katherine BUEHNER from Wuestenberg (that's what her family records say, but I have been very unsuccessful finding it. Evidently there is a tiny hamlet in Bavaria by that name, but I have had no luck in contacting anyone from the area or a researcher I can pay in that area. She came to America in 1857 and was born in 1840. (3) I would like to find an address or person in SCHWIEBUS ( now, I think, Swiebodzin). I have family from there, but since it was behind the iron curtain and is now, I think, Poland, I am lost as to how to begin. THANK-YOU! THANK-YOU!

Erst mal ein Kompliment für die tolle Homepage. Ich bin für meinen Vater und seine Schwester, Martin und Gudrun Habeck, auf der Suche nach unseren Vorfahren. Sie stammten aus dem Dorf Schwessow/Kreis Greifenberg in Hinterpommern. Dort gab es drei Familien Habeck; zweimal Paul Habeck und einmal Richard Habeck. Zur besseren Unterscheidung für den Postboten waren sie durchnummeriert; mein Großvater war Paul Habeck II, Dorfstr. 33, Schwessow. Der Hof, den mein Großvater bewirtschaftete, war ursprünglich ein Rittergut, das aber in drei separate Höfe aufgeteilt und verkauft wurde. Meine Großeltern kauften das "Restgut" (heute ein ziemlicher trauriger und trostloser Anblick). Im Zuge der Kinderlandverschickung kam auch ein Mädchen aus Essen auf den Hof, Anna Reiners oder Rainers. Als sie wieder zurcük nach Essen mußte, hat sich ihre Spur leider verloren. Von meiner Großmutter väterlicherseits (geborene Pape) existiert ein Stammbaum bis ins Jahr 1700, aber leider nur lückenhaft. Ich freue mich über jede Information, die ich bekomme könnte. Viele Grüße und Danke im Voraus!

Hi! you have a very nice site here. I am looking for information on Amalie Roritzri or Rokitzki. I think that was her married name. Not sure what her maiden name was. I know she had a daughter living in Lahworin, Germany in 1896. Her name was Bertha and she married a G. Kamph. The other four daughters Ida, Johanna, Laura, Emily came to the USA. Amalie and her second Husband Rudolf Thiel came to the USA on the Ship Electric out of Hamburg on 14 May 1866. The ship records listed Bertha as a housekeeper. She had a sister Minna still living as of 1896, she was born about 1821-1826. Bertha was born 10 Feb 1820 in Riediger, Germany. I would like to find out any information on her and her first husband. Also my G grandfather Helmuth Brinkmann born 7 Oct 1854 was thought to have been born in Berlin. He came to the USA in 1873. I dont have any other information on him before he came to the USA. Another name I am looking for is my G grandmother Henrietta Fredricka Gissing born in Copenhagen, Denmark 8 May 1863 to Theodore Johannes Gissing born 18 July 1830 in Copenhagen and Katherine Wagner born abt 14 April 1832 or Christiane Wagner born 30 Jan 1831 in Germany. Married bef. 1863 in Copenhagen? She had two sisters Johanna Gissing born abt 9 Feb and Jenny Marie Elizabeth Gissing born 24 Aug 1869 Thank you for any help I can get on this.

My family is referred to having come to Denmark from Hamburg somewhere between 1840 and 1870. My great great grandfather, Heinrich Adolf Brockhausen (changed his name to Brockhusen after moving to Denmark) had his spouse (they were not married at that time) Laura Mehler with him along with seven children. They married once they came settled in Fredericia i Denmark. Fredericia had an international status of being a "free town" at that time, which is why a large group of people from other countries moved there, because they could not live in peace elsewhere. My great great grandmother was believed to be jewish, which is believed to be the reason why they didn't marry untill they came to Denmark. The supposedly trouble prior to the move is also believed to be the reason for my great great grandfather reason for changing the spelling from -hausen to -husen in the last name, to make it sound more Danish. Two of the children, Peter Brockhusen (unmarried) and Laura Brockhusen, married Hvidtfeldt emmigrated to Boston (changed their name to Whitefield) and had their children there. Laura Whitefield, married Livingston, born 1897; Martin Whitefield, born 1900; Dolly Whitefield, married Orioly, born 1906 I have all known. Dolly died last. Dolly lived in Tampa, Florida since the late 1950's. They were the ones asking me to try to dig into the fact whether ther grandmother was jewish. Dolly and Martin went with their mother to Denmark 1912 to see their grandmother on her 90's birthday. They have all experienced being addressed in the street in Boston in jiddish. Laura Mehler is referred to having come from Westerland on the norhtern most German island Sylt. I have written to churches on Sylt years ago with questions about her, but never recieved any reply. Heinrich Adolf Brockhusen was a cigar maker, working for Smiths Tobacco factory in Fredericia where he tought the later Danish statesminister Stauning to become a cigarmaker, before Stauning went into politics. I am very much interested in help from anyone who can explain why my family - who never spoke much of its background - had a way of marrying into families like Tandberg (Norway), Hvidtfeldt (Denmark), Hardenberg (Denmark). Also we have a missing and unconfirmed link to Brockenhuus-Schack, where the male family members carried same first names as the Brockhusen in my family did, starting out with Heinrich Adolf in the early 1800, and than changing back and forth between Heinrich and Adolf, untill Adolf H. made it undesirably to use that name.

I know that Friedrich von BULOW and Henrietta MUELLER were born in Mecklenburg in the late 1830s, came to Chicago, Illinois and had four children there between 1870-1879, and are buried in Wunders Lutheran cemetary north of Chicago. I know they left family in Mecklenburg bacause my dad says my gr-grandfather destroyed all connection to Germany during the was, including letters the family was receiving from Germany. It is rare enough when I run across a BUELOW/BULOW in my research but I have never yet run across a real relative. And by the way, Karin, I love your site! Thanks!

I have noted on your web site that you are researching the surnames PRUTER and FICK (names in red). My great grandfather, Frederick Sass, born 1833 in Mecklenberg, Germany, married a Mary Pruter. From what I understand to date is that Mary Pruter was a daughter of Joacham Pruter who had married Madeline Fick. I am looking for information on my great grandfather Frederick Sass whose father was John Sass. From what I understand my great grandfather married Mary Pruter in 1863 and in that same year they immigrated to the United States settling in Wabasha County, State of Minnesota. If you could supply any further information on surnames of Pruter, Fick or Sass it would be sincerely appreciated. I can provide information for anyone who may want it on the decendants of Frederick Sass. Thank you - Steve.

Hello Karin You have a very nice web page. My great grandfather and his wife were the immigrants to Minnesota from Pommern. Karl Münchow (Muenchow)and his wife Fredricka Tessmer Immiagrated in the year 1867 to the usa. They were married in the year 1866 or67 in pommern. Karl was born in Reinfeld pommern in 1840 or 1841, She in 1836 but do not know her birth location. I think there is more than one Reinfeld so I do not know the Kries in which he was born. I think Karls fathers name was Fredrick and maybe would have been born between 1810 and 1820. Thanks much Bill Muenchow

He emigrated in 1860 and settled in Minnesota. I know he was Catholic and that he probably lived along the Rhine River. I only believe that because of old family lore. However, family lore also identifies Berlin as a residence. His second wife was named Maria Anna Blum from Gindorf, Trier. Charles was born in 1826 and died in 1913. Gertrude Haas was born in 1836 and died in 1883. thanks for any assistance. Carol

Eine Kollegin von mir sucht ihre Ahnen in Deutschland. Sie hat mir einen Namen gegeben und eine Adresse, aber ich glaube wir müssen da vorsichtig sein. So wie sie mir den Namen gab: George Keller, (ich glaube es ist Georg Keller) Geburtstag: ungefähr 1725 Geburtsort: Zeveibruehen, Bavaria (ich glaube Zweibrücken Rh.Pfalz) Georgs Frau is eine Barbara Ann Hottel Geburtstag: ungefähr 1735 Geburtsort: unbekannt. Ich weiß daß dies wenig ist, aber wenn sie helfen könnten, dann wäre ich Ihnen dankbar.

I thought if I could find the place where her great-great grandfather Priebe emigrated from she could possibly visit before she returns to the US. She has fallen in love with Germany- I hope she returns! His name is Frederick Priebe and he was born 19/01/1860. My husband's father doesn't know the town but says the family came from Prussia. I'll try to check census/emigration records here in the states to see if I can come up with a location. But if you have anything I would like to let my daughter know!! Vielen Dank! Shelly Priebe

Ich suche nach der Familie Koroch (oder Korroch). Mein Großvater Gottlieb Koroch verstarb 1938 in Malinowka, Polen. Er war verheiratet mit Luise Molketin. Mein Großvater soll ca. 10 Geschwister gehabt haben, die zum Teil noch in Polen, aber auch in Russland (Ukraine u. Kasachstan) und vielleicht sogar in den USA leben. Mein Großvater muß zwischen 1878 und 1885 geboren sein (vielleicht sogar in Malinowka). Da der Name Koroch sehr selten ist, wünsche ich mir, daß alle, die diesen Namen tragen oder danach forschen sich an mich wenden.

I am very interested in the names you are researching which include: Appel, Duwe, Schroder, and Steffen. I am also interested in the name Krogmann sometimes spelled Kroogmann. Most of the name lists I have seen on the Mecklenburg sites don't mention the name, however I have seen it listed in church books on microfilm dozens of times. I was wondering if you might include this name in your future research. All of the above names are popular in the Postville, Iowa area which is where I am researching the name Krogmann. Thank you.

I am new to computers and interested in my ancestors who came to Australia from Prussia. JOHANN FERDINAND LIETZAU born SCHLSCHOW POMMERN, 16 November 1828. I do not know his parents names, but he had a sister JULIE LIETZAU who married FRIEDRICH OPPATT from OSSECKEN, PRUSSIA. JOHANN FERDINAND LIETZAU married LAURA MATHILDA SCHMIDT at St Marien Kirche, Danzig, Prussia on 7 October 1856. LAURA MATHILDA SCHMIDT was born 21 October 1837 in Danzig. I am anxious to find copies of JOHANN FERDINAND LIETZAU's birth certificate. He used the name LUTZOW in Australia, but his marriage certificate shows LIETZAU. I would appreciate any help at all. There a a few relatives here in Australia who are interested in this ancestor. Many thanks indeed for help in finding his parents, etc.

I am looking for marriage information on Maiheal Wiese and Henretta geb Zadow married c.1860-65. In 1866 they were living in or near Seegenfelde, Deutsch Krone, Pommern. They were protestant. The Wiese children were; Amelia, Pauline Bertha, Reinhart Gottlieb, Herman Maiheal, and Paul Martin. The church book would have been in Lebehnke. There was also another marriage, Jakob Zadow and Charlotte geb Koterman from near Hasenberg, Deutsch Krone, in which I am interested. Those Protestant church records would have been kept in Gross Wittemberg, Deutsch Krone. There were other Wieses at Kramske and Springberg, all in Deutsch Krone, from the same family group, whose church records would have also been kept at Lebehnke, Deutsch Krone, Pommern. Information on ANY of the Wiese and/or Zadow line would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Karin "HAPPY EASTER". I am still working on my family genealogy looking for original family name Sandhof! My great grand father was Charles Henry Sandhof born in Mecklenburg (Germany), son from Christian Sandhof. Christian Sandhof was married to Dorothy Johanna Kalibb in Mecklenburg (Germany). Christian was from Neuendorf, born on about June 30, 1803. Dorthe Johanna Kalibb was from Weitin, Strelitz, Germany born on July 18, 1808. This information comes from the family bible in my possession. The bible is a 1856 German bible printed at Philadelphia, USA. Christian and Johanna brought their son Charles Henry (CARL SANDHOF(F) to Canada in about 1852. Still searching family surnames from Bruce County, Ontario Canada & Mecklenburg, Germany: SANDHOFF, SANDHOF, SANDHOP, SANDHOPE, SANDHOPP, SANDHOOP and KALIBB, KALEB, KALIPP, KALEPPAN, CALEB, GALIEP, MULLER.

I am desperately searching for BIRTH RECORDS OF MY GREAT GRANDFATHER "GOTTLIEB LORF, SR." born July 26, 1817, who I am pretty sure was born in Buko by Coswig-Anhalt, Dessau, Prussia. I have found his wife's birth record FROM THE CHURCH RECORDS from Buko, Johanne Maria Friedricka NEIDIGK born Dec. 24, 1824. I did not find records for my Great Grandfather who "I thought" was also born in Buko. They lived in Buko. Now I have hit a brick wall on him. Can you help me? I am especially interested in him because: I know his father's name was Christoph Lorf, Sr.(this is my Great Great Grandfather) and my Grandfather wrote that his Grandfather(Christoph Lorf, Sr.) was married to the daughter of a "Prince Christineck". I can't find anything about this Prince and I don't know his daughter's name! I would love to know my Great Great Grandmother's name, consequently. Can you help me??? Your webpage is wonderful! Greetings from Florida USA!! Please keep the surname: "LORF" in your index. It is a very rare name. There is no other family in the US (besides mine)! I have found 40 Lorfs in Germany only(no other country) Christoph Lorf, Sr. did have 2 other sons besides my Great Grandfather and I am especially interested in finding them: Christoph Lorf, Jr.(who was born around 1817 probably, & also probably lived in or near Buko) His other son was Andreas Lorf but I was told by my Grandfather Andreas did not have any children of his own and only adopted 2 orphans. There was also a sister which I "think" was named Wilhelmina Lorf, however, I am not sure of her first name and of course do not know her married name. I do know they all lived in Buko in atleast from 1847 to 1868 when they immigrated to Detroit, Michigan. (Also, please put surname "NEIDIGK" on your index.) Do you think Neidigk and Christineck are Polish names?! Thank you for any help! Jeanne Lorf Linley email: jlorf@earthlink.net

VOSSGRAFF - GRAF VOSS??? Im Zuge der Ahnenforschung den Namen Vossgraff betreffend taucht sowohl in Norwegen als auch in Deutschland diese "schöne Geschichte" auf, dass sich der Name Vossgraff von einem mecklenburgischen Grafen Voss ableitet, dem aufgrund moralischer Verfehlung der Grafetitel aberkannt wurde.Anfang dieses Jahrhunderts soll ein Asmus Vossgraf zusammen mit einer Gräfin Diana von Reventlow-Criminil irgendwo in Mecklenburg gewesen sein und dort von Nachkommen dieses Grafen als "Familienmitglied" anerkannt worden sein.Ist diese Geschichte schon einmal jemandem untergekommen, oder ist jemand auf den Namen Vossgraff (in jeder denkbaren Schreibweise) gestoßen???

Edward's brothers, August and Albert Kosbab stayed in Hinter Pommern. Edward's sister, Henrietta Kosbab, married Wilhelm Nutzki, and also settled in Sandusky, Ohio, U.S.A. Would like to learn what town in Hinter Pommern the Kosbab family came from. It is possible they came from the area, formerly known as Stolp, Germany, but I have found no evidence of the exact name of the town. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Marcia, Sandusky, Ohio, U.S.A.

Auguste ?, children, Walter and Else. 1/2 sister Christine ?, don't know if she was born to Luth or if she was the daughter of the 2nd wife, mar. Emil Heyble, who was an Austrian nobleman, children Hans, Otto, and Erna. My g-father married my g-mother, Bertha Rohwer 11/3/1895, they had 3 girls in Germany, Maria, Helen, Catharina, Helen died there, came to America in 1910 and on to Wyoming, where 2 more children Henrietta and Fred (my father) were born. My father knows nothing about his fathers family, my g-father died at a fairly young age (62) from pnuemonia. I would be thrilled to learn something about any of the names listed. I have fairly good knowledge of the Rohwer family, as my fathers cousins are still living in Germany but they know absolutely nothing of the "Luth" (with a umlat over the "u") family and are quite elderly.

You have a wonderful page and a great resorce for other people looking for thier roots. I have the advantage of living close to the third largest geneology library in the U.S. and have done research on both mothers and fathers side. Father was third generation US citizen from German roots. I don't have time right now to look through all of yoour guest books, but will be back. Fathers name is really unusual so it should stick out, but I am not sure where in Germany the family came from and the family didn't talk about it. The Americanized version is harkenrider or Hergenroether. I know that the second was the name of a well known author, just am not sure where it came from. thanks a lot for the amount of time you put in, and if any one else has any info please contact me.

The Internet has accidentally brought together several branches of the above family name that have never previously met. The exchange of information between us has spurred my interest in our German origins and since you seem to have access to Pommern records prior to 1850, perhaps you can help us trace the family name a little farther back in time. Putting together information from several sources has produced the following list of 'oldest' Spreemann names. Frederick Spreemann born: 1810 Wife: Dorthea Krohn born: February 1803 Children: Charles born: August 1837 John(?) unknown Frederick Spreemann born: 1817 Wife: Louise Winkelman born: 1821 Children: William Spreemann born: 01 November 1852 in Rehsel (sic.) Germany?, Amelia Spreemann born: 1852 in Rehsel (sic.) Germany?, Frederick Spreemann born: 1821 Wife: Dorthi Mallow born: 1825 Children: Frederick Spreemann born: 19 November 1857 in Hinter Pommern Germany Johann Karl Frederic (Carl) Spreemann born: 19 November 1854 in Bucholz (sic.) Germany These earliest sources give then 2 definite place names that I can find on old maps today, Buchholz just north of Stargard, and Resehl south of Gollnow (Goleniów). All are located in the same area of Pommern. BUCHHOLZ: Stadt (Town/City): Buchholz Kreis (County): Saatzig Regierungsbezirk (District): Stettin (Szczecin) Oberlandesgericht (Highest Provincial Court District): Stettin Landgericht(Lower Court District): Stargard (Stargard Szczecin) Amtsgericht (Lower Court): Stargard ?) Land (Province): Pommern (Hinterpommern) RESEHL: Stadt (Town/City): Resehl (Reszel) Kreis (County): Naugard (Nowogard) Regierungsbezirk (District): Stettin (Szczecin) Oberlandesgericht (Highest Provincial Court District): Stettin Landgericht(Lower Provincial Court District): Stargard (Stargard Szczecin) Amtsgericht (Lower Court): Naugard (?) Land (Province): Pommern (Hinterpommern) Other sources in the U.S. says Spreemann family immigrated from around Resehl, Prussia now Radzanek(?), Poland and yet another mentions a Julius Spreemann from Galnau (Could this be Gollnow which is just north of Resehl?). Another source mentions a statue in the town square of Bucholz (sic.) East Germany in honour of a Spreemann. This of course could not be the location of the above Buchholz but there is a Märkisch Buchholz in Brandenburg just south of Berlin, north of the Spreewald and to the west of the River Spree. Has perhaps the ancestral homename been re-established in Hinter Pommern after an eastward migration? Perhaps encouraged by Frederick I (1657-1713), first king of Prussia, in his opening of Prussian territory for settlement by persecuted Protestants? Maybe that is why there are so many 'Fredericks' in the family. Most of the Spreemans in the U.S. and Canada have dropped the last 'n' in Spreemann after immigration but a few still use the original spelling. A search for Spreeman(n) via the Lycos telephone white pages in the U.S. Canada and Germany returned the following results: 141 hits for Spreeman and 4 hits for Spreemann in the U.S.; 188 hits for Spreemann in Germany; and 11 hits for Spreeman in Canada. There are also several 'Spraymans' that are also known to come directly from this name. If you were to pronounce the name 'Spreemann' correctly in German to the authorities in America, that is probably what they would write down, 'Sprayman', even though that is a just an approximation of the correct phonemics. That of course has happened to a lot of families that immigrated to America. In any case, with so few surviving names on both sides of the Atlantic, I would think that very many of the above will be found to be related in some way. The should be little doubt that the correct spelling is SPREEMANN and that the name has Märkisch (Brandenburger) origins from the River Spree. If you fine any reference to any information at all on the name Spreemann in your material I would certainly appreciate hearing about it. I can mention in closing the none of the above names have been proven to have any connection to the oldest known member of my own branch of the family which is as follows: August Spreemann, born: May 1843, Province of Posen married: 1859, Province of Posen wife: Florentina Schultz, born: January 1844, Province of Posen Children: Charles L. Spreemann, born: 03 May 1860, Province of Posen married: 1889 wife: Selma A Stelzner born: 18 June 1862 Saxony, Germany August Spreemann, born: 22 April 1862, Province of Posen married: 13 September 1885, Mrotschen (Mroczen´), Province of Posen wife: Emma Würm born: 11 October 1866 Mrotschen, Province of Posen Bertha Spreemann, born: 1864, Province of Posen Frederick Ferdinand Spreemann, born: 27 October 1866, Province of Posen Julius Spreemann, born: 30 May 1869, Province of Posen Flora Spreemann, born: 1870, Province of Posen Frank Spreemann, born: May 1874, Province of Posen (2 additional children died in Germany, names unknown) Unfortunately all my references specify the "Province of Posen" as the place of birth and this branch of the family is probably out of the area that your records cover. A possibility that may connect these names to the above area is that in the retelling of the family history someone has confused the name 'Polzin', a town in Pommern to the east of Naugard, with the name 'Posen'. This does not seem very likely since all the family names in this branch refer to the same place of origin. Again, ANY reference to the name SPREEMANN in your records would probably be of great interest to the members of the family name that I am now in contact with. My e-mail address is: lws@nis-nor.no if possible please 'cc' to: alspremn@telusplanet.net and druffer@forth.com Thank you for any help that you may be able to provide. Best Regards, LAWRENCE W.

Hi Karin, Would you happen to have the surname Tolle in any of your books? I'm already having you look up my surname (Meyenburg)but forgot to mention my mother's maiden name is Tolle. I just read that it is an ancient Pommeranian name. I don't know much about the Tolle's from Germany, but my mother's granfather or great-grandfather's name was Charles Tolle,Sr. and he was supposed to have come to the USA in 1866 from Germany. If you have any information of the Tolle family of Germany even before and after Charles I would greatly appreciate the information. P.S. This is a great web site. Even though you haven't found the Meyenburg name yet I think you are doing a wonderful job and it's very nice of you to take the time to help all of the people with the names you've researched. Keep up the good work and Guten Abend!!!!! (Is that correct?)

Hi Karin! What a nice site! I am researching the OHLEMACHER family. Philip Ohlemacher is the oldest family name I have. He was a shepherd. His son, Henry Ohlemacher was born in 1797 in Frankfort Au Main. He married Catherine Preisterbach abt. 1825. He came to the US around 1851 and settled in Erie Co., OH. Interestingly enough, there is another Ohlemacher family which settled in the same area. Daniel Ohlemacher, born Dec 3, 1809 in Burg Schwalbach, came to the northwestern OH area around 1860. His father was also a shepherd. It is my belief that these two families were related, but I do not have proof.

I'm in the process of researching the origins of the Pemoller family. We have traced back our branch of the family tree from the Chicago area to Vienna Austria in the mid 1800's then back to northern Germany in the early 1800's. The earliest entry I have is for a Joachim Pemoller born somewhere in the Hamburg area around 1802. He was married to Anna Cecilia Roper from Einebettel Germany and had a son Johann Augustinus Pemoller. I also found in the Mormon Family group records a group of Pemollers from 1605 to the late 1770's in Gulzow which I think in the Mecklenburg-Schwerin area but in the old maps I also found a Gulzow in Pommern. The last entry seems to be for a Joachim Johann Pemoller born in 1734. Since Pemoller is not a very common name, I am trying to tie these together. To the best of my knowledge there are 11 Pemollers in the US and 9 in Austria. Reviewing the German telephone directory, I found 101 in Germany most in the Hamburg area. I would appreciate any information or guidance you might be able to provide to help me with this process. Sincerely, Ray Pemoller

Seeking a marriage date and location for Dorothea Sophia Schmeling and Martin Dentz. Probably about 1804...somewhere near Naugard....she was from Neuhof. Or one of their children, Henriette, Johann Carl, Christian Friedrich Ernst. I think Martin and Dorothea are my gggparents....who died in Jasczerrek, West Prussia as Martin Bentz and Dorothea Sophia Schmeller. I can understand the name change....since the info was given by a grandson.....and my own mother never knew her mother's maiden name. Martin was a Theerschweler....tar manufacturer....and went to the koloni of Wilhelswalder...about 1818 I think....because he paid taxes that year and everything from that date forward is available in Neuenburg, WP church records...except for the family's birth records and place of origin. Suggestions welcome. John.

I am looking for information on my great great grandparents. John Adam Moller and Johanna Storz or Stolz-Moller. Johanna and her three sons Gustav, Joseph and Leopold came to the United States in 1885. Leopold brought with him his wife Alexandrena Colenburg They came to St. Paul Nebraska then later on to Hemingford, Box Butte County Nebraska where they homesteaded. I know that they had at least one sister Julianne Moller who married a man named Neibergall and they stayed in Germany I believe in the Frankfurt area. John Adam Moller died in Germany prior to his wife and sons coming to America. I also am seeking information on another great great grandfather Ludwig Zimmerman. I know very little about him except that he was German born--married Julia Bucheister and he died and was buried in Missouri USA. Your site is very interesting---I plan to spent lots of time here.

Hi there! I have located my great-grandfather(Johann Christoph Schroeder, b.4 May 1843 in Moidentin, Meck.) and great-grandmother (Sophia Friederika Christiana Wuechner b.7 Feb 1844 om Ca;spw/Kalsow, Meckl) but I am having trouble tracing the family back accurately. First of all, I do not speak German. Secondly, the minister's handwriting is particularily horrid. Finally, the LDS microfilm and/or church books are in really poor shape. Can you find the marriage of Johann's parents, Joachim Christian karl Schroeder and Elisabeth Maria Dorothea Hinz/Hintze in about 1830-1845? I believe they were both from Dorf Mecklenburg. How about the marriages from the generation before that...Joachim(?) Heinrich Hinz/Hintze and Maria Elisabeth Rebbbin/Rebbien in about 1795-1810 in the Tiwalck/Lubow area; Loachim Heinrich Wuechner and Friedericka Ulricka Troff; Joachim Friedrich Gaeske and margaret? Moll? In the generation prior to that, perhaps marrying in the 1770's, I am looking for Johann Joachim Hintze and Christina Maria Juls...also Ilsabeth Schroeder with ? All of these folks lived around Calsow, Moidentin, Dorf Mecklenburg, Triwalk, Lubow, and Cartlow. Thank you so much for your offer!! Nancy Merriman

Thanks for the great resource. I have been working on my family's history for just a couple weeks now and I have learned so much. My gg grandfather came to the U.S from Pommern via Berman and NYC. His name was Ferdinand Labs and his wife's name was Heanritta Klabunde.They came over with there children Carl,August,Wilhelm,Albertine,Albert around 1872. I know for sure Ferdinand's brother, Johann came over in April of 1870. Johann came over with his wife Heanritta and one daughter Bertha, as well as another Heanritta Labs who went on to marry a Mr Kobs in the U.S.. So in short I am currently researching the surnames of Labs,Klabunde and also Prochnow. These families settled in Douglas County,NE. If anyone has knowledge of these families please contact me. Thanks.

Hi, I recentley visited Neubrandenburg with my mother in an effort to help her find out what happened to her loved ones and friends after the war ended. She was working in the "Schloss" in Klocksin in 1945 and left there at the end of the war once she was effectively "Freed" from working for the German family that lived there. Thier name was/is "Seip". We were able to find out some interesting and deeply moving information about the family but would be grateful for anything else anyone knows about the "Siep's" and/or the "Arbeiter" that lived there. My mother also worked for a short time in "Kussow" (with two dots on the "U") and is looking for ANY information in regards to the family name of "Sawek" (Not sure about the spelling, could be "Savek" or "Savick" or other variations of this)Particularly the name "Franek Marian Sawek". We were unfortunatley not able to find out anything about this person or the family name. ANY information would be gratefully appreciatted. I seek this information most importantly for my Mother's peace of mind but, for myself, I would be appreciative of any information as I'm in the midst of writing her "story" as I believe it's one hell of a tale to tell. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Mich wundert schon, dass es bisher keine Anfragen über meinen Namen "Dobberphul" gegeben hat, da doch mindestens 3 Orte Pommerns so benannt sind (heute in Polen "Dobrepole"). Erstaunlich ist, dass sich alle Dobberphuls mit "ph" und nicht mit "f" oder "puh" schreiben. Das deutet stark auf einen gemeinsamen Ursprung hin. Lag er in Pommern in besagten Dörfern? Mein Vater heißt Willy Dobberphul und stammt aus dem Kreis Greifenberg. Wer weiß Näheres über die Vorfahren und die Herkunft dieses Namens?

I am looking for relatives of my mother, who was born in Tilsit, East Prussia, in 1931, to Otto and Ida Schakat. They fled from their home when the Russian army invaded, and lost track of relatives after that. My mother came to the USA in the 1950's. There are very few Schakats to be found here, so I don't have many leads. My Grandfather had only 2 sisters, who would not be named Schakat if they married, and no brothers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Karin, congratulations, you have a nice (and hard) work. As many of your visitors I am searching for my family roots, I´m a 48-years-old Brazilian physician, descendant of Christian Tieboehl or Tietböhl, maybe from Stettin or Demmin, we don´t know exactly. He came as a mercenary soldier circa 1850 (those militia men weere called "BRUMMER") by the time Brazil was an empire fihting against Spanyard neihbours in the South. In this counrry he married with Catarina Eigenrodt, a daughter of german immigrants, maybe from Mecklemburg. He had many sons including Leopoldo, a school teacher that was my grandfather. The couple Chistian-Catarina died in the wreckage of a steam ship in a lagoon of Rio Grande do Sul State in the beginning of XX century. I am ready to give you any other information you may need to your valuable work, mainly about the german immigration in Brazil. I am not a specialits but that is a subject of my special interest and I would be glad to help you. If posible I would like to receive any available information you have about Tietboehl and Eigenbrodt families. In spite of the long list you have to cope I will be patiently waiting for your response. Thanks for all and my good greetings of a happy y2k. Sincerely yours, Carlos. Dec 26 1999.

I'm just beginning to search. The earliest name on my father's side is Karl August Mueller, b. 18 February, 1825 at Stettin, Pomerania, d. 12 March, 1908, married to Caroline Moldenhauer. On my mother's side is Ewald Friederich Ferdinand Rosen, b. 11 February, 1852, in Speck, Pmerrania, d. 30 January, 1942, married Maria Traetow (b. 7 November, 1865, d.25 May, 1946) 31 August, 1883. Ewald was one of nine children born to Martin Rosen & Emilie nee Sylvester. Our information tells us that many records were burned during WWII and that further information may be difficult to find. Thanks, Greg.

I stumbled upon your wonderful web page & am very impressed with it! I have had absolutely NO luck in tracking down my great grandparents place of birth and who their parents and siblings were. Hope someone can help! Their names are: FRIEDRICH LUDWIG LAUT who married MARIA KUNDE. They settled in DuPage County, Illinois, USA. They had 5 children: ALBERT LAUT born 1885 died 1952, HERMAN LAUT born 1888 died 1965, WILLIAM LAUT born 1889 died 1966, ANNA M. LAUT WIRKUS born 1893 died 1940 & OTTO LAUT born 1895 died 1973. Do any of these names ring a bell? I don't know if any of the children were born in Germany before the family came to America. Thanks in advance for your time and trouble in my behalf!
