Schmidt Family – Online Berlin Evangelical Records

I have received an email from a man named Engelbart Rolf from a website that has church records from Posen.  He was letting me know that the Zierkes actually didn’t live in Posen (Jastrowie is in West Prussia, just over the border from Posen).  I have written him back asking about the Schmidts who lived in Gornitz and Wirsitz.

About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
