Timeline for Winkelmann Family in Prussia

This document is an attempt to outline what we know about the family of my 3x-great-grandmother Wilhelmine Winkelmann (1836-1914). Her family, like the family of her husband Carl Friedrich Schmidt, lived in Kreis Friedeberg in Posen, Prussia, and then moved to the towns around Karolina and Stieglitz in Kreis Czarnikau, some distance to the East.

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
