Birth Record for Auguste Pauline Schmidt – 1875

The birth record for another of the fabled “Schmidt Sisters”.

This document comes courtesy of Marlena Krzeminska, who found it in the state archive in Pila, Poland.   It is exciting because it shows that the Schmidt family was in Gornitz, Posen, Prussia in 1875, five years earlier than we had known before.

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
