Winkelmann Records from Kreis Filehne, Posen, Prussia

My Winkelmann family was in Kreis Friedeberg from about 1805 to about 1855, but before that I don’t know where they were.  My cousin Marlena found some records from Kreis Filehne with Winkelmann entries in them starting in the early 1700’s.  Since my Winkelmann family would live basically in this same place by the mid-to-late 1800’s it’s possible they were returning back to somewhere they had lived previously.  In any case I’m going to put any records that Marlena finds here where I can get to them and others can too.

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
