Kamrath, Porath, and Magedanz Records – Kannenberg, Kreis Saatzig, Pommern, Prussia

Discovered this very important record today while looking for records for my Porath family in Kreis Saatzig and Kreis Naugard.  The record just above it was from the Porath family, but then I noticed this record:

ErnstFriedrichWilhelmMarquardtBaptism1831_zoom

Nr. 10.  Kannenberg.  To the einlieger (lodger and farm-worker) Michael Friedrich Marquardt from Kannenberg and his wife Dorothea Sophia Kamrath, a son Ernst Friedrich Wilhelm Marquardt, born 3 Aug 1831 at 1:00pm and baptized 14 Aug 1831.  Godparents: Ernst Kamrath, gutsschäfer (shepherd on an estate) in Daberkow (Kreis Regenwalde, next to Roggow A), Gottlieb Krüger, einlieger in Braunsberg (Kreis Naugard, next to Meesow and Schwerin), Michael Pribbernow, schneidergesell (journeyman tailor) in Kannenberg, Dorothea Sophia Droes, wife of the zimmergesell (journeyman carpenter) Johann Kamrath in Bernhagen (Kreis Naugard, north of Kannenberg), Louise Magedanz, wife of the statthalter (foreman) Michael Friedrich Kamrath on the Gut (estate) in Schwerin.

Dorothea Louise Magedanz, wife of Michael Friedrich Kamrath from Schwerin was my 4x great-grandmother.  So that means that the Dorothea Sophia Kamrath, Ernst Kamrath, and Johann Kamrath mentioned are almost certainly her husband’s siblings (my 5x-great-aunts and uncles).

It’s tempting to conclude that the Gottlieb Krüger mentioned must be related to my Krüger family, but the Krügers and Kamraths didn’t get married until 1890 in America, so it’s not in any way an indication that the families are the same.

This record led me to an arguably more important record:

MarquardtKamrathMarriage1824_zoom

Nr. 4.  Kannenberg.  Marriage of Michael Friedrich Marquardt, 20 years old, eldest son of the gerichtsmann (court man) and bauer (farmer) Christian Friedrich Marquardt, and Dorothea Sophia Kamrath, eldest daughter of the ochsenhirte (oxen herdsman) Adam Kamrath in Kannenberg, 23 years old, on 28 Oct 1824.

This is remarkable because it mentions my 5x great-grandfather Adam Kamrath for the first time in my research.

Ernst Friedrich Wilhelm Marquardt died 29 Oct 1851 in Kannenberg:

Nr. 9.  Kannenberg.  Ernst Friedrich Wilhelm Marquardt, son of einlieger Michael Friedrich Marquardt died on 29 Oct. 1851 on dropsy, age 20 years, 2 months, 26 days.

His mother, Dorothea Sophia Kamrath, died 4 Mar 1862 in Kannenberg:

Nr. 7. Kannenberg. Death of Dorothea Sophia Kamrath wife of the Alsitzer Michael Marquardt on 4 Mar 1862, aged 60 years, 3 months 3 days.

Another record from this same branch of my family adds more detail, including the full name of Adam, Ernst, and Adam’s wife Eleonora Bortz (my 5x-great-grandmother):

KamrathDrebelowMarriage1825_zoom

Nr. 1.  Karkow (Kreis Saatzig, just southeast of Kannenberg).  Marriage of the schäferknecht (assistant shepherd) Ernst Wilhelm Kamrath from Kannenberg, second son of the deceased arbeitsmann (laborer) Adam Friedrich Wilhelm Kamrath, and his wife Eleonora Bortz, 27 years old, and Miss Dorothea Sophia Drebelow, second daughter of the deceased arbeitsmann Christian Friedrich Drebelow from Tolz (Kreis Saatzig) and his wife Dorothea Maria Jeske, age 24, on 16 Oct 1825.

Adam Kamrath and Eleonora Bortz were probably married in Kannenberg about 1795, based on the fact that their first son was born there in June 1796.

The Lost Kamrath Sibling – Hermann Kamrath (1859-1909)

My cousin Lisa and I have been working together on the Krueger side of our family for many years. Since the beginning of our work, she had told me about rumors of relatives left back in Germany when our family came here from Prussia. [German-speaking Prussians were evicted from their lands after World War II and forced to relocate back in Germany.] Lisa said that her great-grandmother Agnes Krueger had been in contact with these relatives until the 1960’s. It was said that in the aftermath of World War II, when times were desperate in Germany, Agnes had sent “care packages” containing coffee and sugar, along with other difficult-to-obtain items. There was also a cousin of some kind from these German relatives named Brigitte Grubba (b 1935) who came and stayed with them, although neither Lisa nor her mother knew how Brigitte was related.

Recently Lisa’s grandmother, an incomparable women named Loris Voigt Dustin, passed away at the ripe old age of 97. In the process of going through her grandmother’s papers, Lisa found a note written by Agnes Krueger:

Agnes Krueger note.

Agnes Krueger’s note on the Kamrath Family.

“Hermon [sic] Kamrath, Germany, has one son Paul Kamrath and he has two sons one Peter & Hermon one daughter Elsa & Briggett (Brigitte Grubba) is from second marriage of son of Hermon’s who was killed in World War 1.”

With this information we went to work, and after many months I can present what we have learned about “Hermann” Kamrath, the lost brother of my great-great-grandmother, Bertha Kamrath.

Otto Julius Hermann Kamrath was born on 9 Jul 1859 in the tiny town of Hoffelde, in Kreis [County] Regenwalde, in Pommern [Pomerania], Prussia. The town is called Dargomyśl, Poland today. Hermann was the second child and first son of Carl Friedrich Ferdinand Kamrath (1831-1900) and his first wife Wilhelmine Sophie Henriette “Henriette” Pribbernow (1834-1865). Carl was a “Stellmacher” [wagon-maker or wheelwright] who had married Henriette in the town of Plathe in 1857. After their marriage, the couple moved about 14 miles south to the town of Hoffelde in Kries Regenwalde near the town of Meesow, which was Henriette’s home town. The couple’s three known children were born there, including Auguste V. Kamrath, and my great-great-grandmother, Bertha Auguste Wilhelmine Kamrath, who was born 3 Aug 1864.

Roggow A and Meesow. Hoffelde was about a half mile east of Roggow.

Sometime between August 1864 and September 1865, Henriette died in Hoffelde. It’s possible there were complications with her delivery of daughter Bertha. Carl quickly remarried to his second wife Auguste Henriette Sense (1841-1892), and they had five more children together in Hoffelde: Helene Johanna Kamrath (b 29 Jul 1866), Anne T. Kamrath (b 12 Aug 1868), Emma A Kamrath (b 5 Aug 1870), Carl Kamrath Jr. (b 23 Jan 1875), and finally Mathilda Ida Augusta “Ida” Kamrath (b 5 May 1878).

Like all Prussian men, Hermann was required to be in the military. There is a document which suggests that at the age of 18 (in 1877) he enlisted and served as a “gefreiter” [Corporal] in the province of Ostpreussen (East-Prussia) in the 7th Ostpreussen Infantry Regiment Nr. 44. This would have taken him far from home, about 200 miles east of the family home in Pomerania.

While there, it seems he met a Polish, catholic, farmer’s daughter named Helene Zielinski. Hermann, like his entire family, was Lutheran (evangelical), and culturally German. Helene was born on 9 Nov 1863 in the town of Barlewitz, Kreis Stuhm on the border between the provinces of Westpreussen and Ostpresussen. It is called Barlewice, Poland today. Her father, Johann Zielinski, was an eigenthümer [farm-owner]. She would have been about 14 and Hermann about 18 when they met. From what I can tell, Hermann’s regiment was stationed in the town of Graudenz, about 36 miles south of Barlewitz.

Something substantial must have occurred between them, and evidence would suggest that Hermann and Helene stayed in touch for several years even after Hermann returned back home from his deployment in Ostpreussen. At some point Hermann settled in Berlin, Germany where he found work as a “portier” [doorman]. It almost certainly would have caused great tension in the two families if their relationship were known since the Germans and the Polish generally did not get along at all, and evangelicals almost never inter-married with catholics. But with Hermann in Berlin and his family still in Pomerania, perhaps a long-distance relationship of some kind could thrive.

In May of 1883, Hermann’s half-sisters Anne and Helene boarded the ship “Bohemia” in Hamburg, Germany and went to America. Around the same time, his full-sister Auguste went to America also, meeting and marrying a Bavarian man named Simon Wimmer in the town of Grand Rapids, Wisconsin on 4 Jun 1883. Things must have gone well for the other two sisters in Wisconsin, because two years later in May of 1885 everyone else in Hermann’s family [father, step-mother, sister Bertha, and three half-siblings] boarded the “Hammonia” and went to Wausau, Wisconsin, settling in on a farm in the Town of Maine in Marathon County.

At some point before 1885, Helene Zielinski left her family home in Baumgarth, Kreis Stuhm and came west to Berlin to live with Hermann. At that time Berlin was a city of 1.3 million people, and it was possible to be essentially anonymous there, especially compared to the rural Prussian countryside where Hermann and Helene had both grown up.

Although their relationship would probably have, as stated before, caused problems with their families, they suddenly found themselves in a situation where Hermann’s entire family was in America, Helene’s mother was 200 miles away, and her father had passed away. That being the case, the couple were married in Berlin on 10 Oct 1885, only a couple months after Hermann’s family sailed for America.

No. 622, Berlin, the 10th of October 1884, before the registrar came the “Portier” (doorman) Otto Hermann Julius Kamrath, evangelical religion, identified by the marriage banns register, born the 9th of July 1859 in Hoffelde, Kreis Regenwalde, resident of Berlin, Steglitzer Straße No. 5 and 6, son of the “Stellmacher” Carl Kamrath, who emigrated to America and is currently residing in state of Wisconsin, and his deceased wife Henriette née Pribbernow from his first marriage, last resident in Hoffelde, and Helene Zielinski, “früher in Diensten” – previous to be in service, identified in the same way, the fiancé did, catholic religion, born in November, 9th, 1863 in Barlewitz, Kreis Stuhm, WestPreussen, resident of Berlin, Steglitzer Straße No. 5 and 6, daughter of the “Eigenthümer” (farm-owner) Johann Zielinski, who died in Christburg, (Kreis Stuhm) Westpreussen, and his wife Helene née Ehlert residents of Baumgarth in Kreis Stuhm. Witnessed by the “Schneidermeister” (master tailor) Johann Kunde, identified by his military pass, 35 years old, resident of Berlin, Genthiner Straße Nr. 39 (Berlin-Tiergarten) , “Tischler” (cabinet-maker) Ferdinand Wurmmehl, 32 years old, identified also by his military pass, resident of Berlin, Schwerinstraße Nr. 6.

This photo of Hermann was probably taken about the time of his marriage at a photo studio just down the street from his home on Schwerinstraße. He appears to be wearing his portier’s uniform in it:

Helene must have become pregnant almost immediately, and their first child, Else Helene Frida Kamrath was born on 11 Jun 1886. Hermann and Helene had moved to Schwerinstraße 11 in Schöneberg [at that time a town just outside of Berlin, but a part of Berlin itself today]. Three more children followed: Paul Hermann August Kamrath was born 19 Nov 1887 and died less than two months later on 2 Jan 1888, Helene Franziska Auguste Kamrath was born on 25 Nov 1888 and died a little over a year later on 16 Mar 1890, and then finally a son named Franz Hermann Paul “Paul” Kamrath was born in Schöneberg on 8 Jan 1891. Hermann and Helene had moved to Nollendorfstraße 2 by this point.

Hermann appears many times in the Berlin City directory over the years. I’ll list the entries here:

1896 – H. Kamrath, Fensterputzer (window-washer), W Gleditschstraße 28 H III
1897 – H. Kamrath, Fensterputzer (window-washer), W Gleditschstraße 28
1898 – H. Kamrath, Fensterputzer (window-washer), W Gleditschstraße 28

1907 to 1909 – Hermann Kamrath, Wächter (guard), W30 Kyffhuäuserstraße 10

Sadly, in 1909 Hermann died at the Viktoria Krankenhaus (hospital) at the age of 49.

It is reported that the “Wächter” (watchman or guard) Otto Hermann Julius Kamrath, 49 years old, evangelical religion, resident of Schöneberg Kyffhäuserstraße 10, born in Hoffelde, Kreis Regenwalde, married in Schöneberge to Helene née Zielinski, son of “Stellmacher” Karl Kamrath and his wife Henriette née Pribbernow, both deceased, last resident in America, died 29 May 1909 in Viktoria-Krankenhaus (hospital) in Schöneberg.

No cause of death was given, unfortunately, nor was a place of burial specified.

A subtle point here – Hermann knew his father had passed away in America, which proves that he was still in touch with the family despite the vast distances that separated them. It’s almost painful to think about all those letters in German going back and forth and how valuable they would be today in terms of knowing these people.

Hermann’s wife Helene was listed in the 1910 Berlin Directory as a “Portierfrau” (doorman’s wife) still living at Kyffhuäuserstraße 10, but for the next few years only their daughter Else is listed in the directory. I suspect that Helene moved in with Else after Hermann’s death, as the two women are listed more or less alternately after 1915 at the same address in Wilmersdorf, another town near Berlin which would eventually become part of Berlin. Both of them had become “Modistin” or milliners [makers of women’s hats]. I’ll list the directory entries here for completeness:

Helene passed away from Arteriosclerosis, influenza, and heart failure on 16 Mar 1941 in Steglitz-Berlin:

Helene Zielinski Death, 1941

Helene Zielinski Death, 1941

Nr. 171. Berlin – Steglitz, the 18th of March 1941. The widow Helen Kamrath, née Zielinski, unemployed, catholic religion, resident in Berlin-Wilmersdorf at Livländische Strasse 20, died on 16 Mar 1940 at 2:45pm in Berlin-Steglitz, Süende District, Hanstedter Route 15. The deceased was born on 9 Nov 1863 in Barlewitz, Kreis Stuhm, daughter of Johann Zielinski, last resident in Christburg in Westpreussen, and Helene Zielinski née Ehlert, last resident in Berlin. The deceased was the widow of the Behördenangestellten (government employee), Otto Hermann Julius Kamrath. Entered on the verbal testimony of the daughter, the seamstress Else Kamrath, resident in Berlin-Wilmersdorf at Livländische Strasse 20. She was identified by her Handwerkskarte (trade membership card), and she explained that she learned of the death. 1) A word was crossed out. 2) A word was underlined. Signed and attested: Else Kamrath. The registrar in representation: Voigt. Cause of death: Arteriosclerosis, influenza, heart failure. ( Record of this death was made on the marriage certificate of the deceased on 10 Oct 1885 in Berlin. Registry Berlin III, Tiergarten, record 622/1885).

Hermann’s daughter Else Kamrath died on 9 Sept 1972 in the town of Kötzting in Bavaria, Germany.

Else Kamrath Death Notation,1972

Else Kamrath Death Notation,1972

Her death record lists three women, Margaret Grubba, Elisabeth Schreiber, and Charlotte Bürger.  I have been able to confirm that at least two of these women were daughters of Else Kamrath, despite the fact that she seems to have never married.

Margarete Helene Kamrath was born in Lankwitz-Berlin, Germany on 24 Apr 1906.  She married the “verwaltungsangestellte” (administrative staff person) Aloyis Franz Grubba in Wilmersdorf on 9 May 1930.  They had at least two children, Brigitte Marie Grubba (b 7 Dec 1935 in Wilmersdorf), and an unknown daughter born in 1940 also in Wilmersdorf.

Elisabeth Franziska Helene Kamrath was born 27 May 1909 in Schöneberg-Berlin, and married the “kaufmann” (merchant) Max Willy Schreiber on 27 Mar 1929 in Wilmersdorf.  She was listed as an editorial office secretary on her marriage record. They had at least two sons, one born in 1929 and one born in 1937.  I’m still trying to find out more about them.  Max Schreiber died 26 Feb 1962 in Kreuzberg, Berlin, Germany. Elisabeth was alive until at least 1979, still living at 33 HumboldStraße 22 in Berlin.

From 1933 to 1943 Else’s brother Paul Kamrath is listed in the directories as a Schlosser (locksmith) living at Holsteinische Straße 17.

Paul married Helene Nowotna in Wilmersdorf on 18 Dec 1930, and they had two sons, Hans Peter Paul “Peter” Kamrath  (b 25 Feb 1934) and Hermann (b 26 Oct 1930).  Hermann died in 1990 in Berlin, but Peter still lives there in an eldercare facility.  He is, unfortunately, not willing to discuss his family, so for now I don’t know if either Peter or Hermann had any children of their own.

Paul Kamrath died in Gatow-Berlin on 25 Feb 1963 at the Hohengatow State Hospital.  His wife Helene Nowotna died 18 Oct 1964.


The Strange Death of Jürgen Buss – 11 Jul 1691

I’ve been having a researcher look for specific records for my Prussian family in the Pomeranian Archives at Greifswald, Germany.  One that was recently discovered dates back to 1691 and involves my 8x great-grandfather Jürgen Buss.  For those not familiar with terms like “8x great-grandfather”, Jürgen was the great-great-great-great-grandfather of my great-great-grandmother Bertha Kamrath.

The record from the parish of Roggow A (circled on the map below) documents his burial in the town of Meesow, Kreis (county) Regenwalde, in Pommern (Pomerania), Prussia.  This map shows Meesow at the very bottom with Regenwalde at the top.

Regenwalde & Meesow

Regenwalde & Meesow

I never would have guessed that we’d have any record at all of my family living in Prussia in the 1600’s, much less a record with this level of detail.  Normally burial records, especially older ones, simply say “This person died on this day and was buried on this other day.”  More recently (e.g. in the 1880’s or 1890’s) you will find things like the cause of death, names of parents (for children) or spouses (for adults), and a cursory description of the next of kin (e.g. “the widow and two sons were left behind”).  I’ve never seen an older entry with this kind of detail in all the tens of thousands of records I’ve looked at, so I think the person writing it was as intrigued by the circumstances we are today.

Jürgen Buss Burial, Meesow, 1691

Jürgen Buss Burial, Meesow, 1691

Even my German friend who is kind enough to translate documents for me had difficulty due to the antiquated phrasing and writing, but the gist of the document is as follows:

On 11 Jul 1691 was buried here (in Meesow) Jürgen Buss, baumann (farmer) in Meesow, who died “am Tage Kiliani” (on St. Killian’s day, 8 Jul 1691) when he fell asleep while driving a wagon and the horses ran with him into a “suhle” (marshy pond).  The wagon overturned and “versauffet” (sank, and he drowned).  “Gott sei seiner armen Seele gnädig durch Jesum!” (May God through his son Jesus have mercy on his soul!).

I’m sure there’s more to this story, but we’ll probably never know.  I imagine him having a few too many drinks to celebrate St. Killian, perhaps.  In any case, Rest in Peace Grandpa Jürgen Buss.


New Records from Kreis Regenwald for Pribbernow Family

Recently, I hired a German researcher to search the “Landeskirchlichen Archiv der Nordkirche” in Greifswald, Germany for me.  I sent him a list of people and dates that I was interested in, and he returned from his trip with about 60 new records for my Kamrath and Pribbernow families.  I will post a summary of the Pribbernow Family records here, and have posted the Kamrath family records separately.  Both lines now go back much futher than before in Pomerania (Pommern) Prussia, and with much greater detail.  I have put the digitized images of all these records on my tree at Ancestry.com.

This map shows the various towns that are listed in these records, including:

Hoffelde (Dargomyśl), Meesow (Mieszewo), Schwerin (Zwierzynek), Roggow A (Rogowo), Voigtshagen (Wojtaszyce), Gross Raddow (Radowo Wielkie), Gross Benz (Bienice), Schöneu (Sienno Dolne), and others.

Kreis Regenwalde, Pommern, Prussia


[My 4x great-grandfather] Michael Friedrich Kamrath (born about 1800) wasn’t from Schwerin, Kreis Regenwalde, Pommern, Prussia, but his wife Louise Magedanz came from there.  Later he went to Meesow, and then to the town of Gross Raddow, whose parish records, unfortunately, were lost in the aftermath of WWII.  For this reason it is unlikely we will find his death record or that of his wife Dorothea Louise Magedanz.  Michael was listed at various points as a farmhand (1826), a local governor or mayor (1835) and a private tutor (1857).

1. Michael Friedrich Kamrath, farmhand in Schwerin, married Dorothea Louise Magedanz on 21 Nov 1826 in Schwerin.  (Schwerin, 4/1826).

The children of Michael Kamrath and Louise Magedanz were:

1.1. Augusta Albertine Kamrath, born on 20 Mar 1828 in Schwerin. (Schwerin, 3/1828).  She died on 15 Apr 1828 in Schwerin. (Schwerin, 9/1828)

1.2. Wilhelm Carl Michael Kamrath, born on 1 Apr 1829 in Schwerin, bapt. on 6 Apr 1829. (Schwerin, 3/1829)

1.3. Carl Friedrich Ferdinand Kamrath, born on 6 Mar 1831 in Schwerin. (Schwerin, 2/1831)

1.4. Bertha Emilie Augusta Kamrath, born on 23 Dec 1835 in Meesow, bapt. on 17 Jan 1836.  Godparents: 1. Louise Magedanz née Leddin from Schwerin.  2. Louise Trantow, Kuhpächter (cowherd’s) daughter from Meesow.  3. Friederica Kroll, Seiler (rope maker’s) daughter from Daber.  4. Ernst Klug, inspector from Meesow.  5. Gottlieb Hartwig, shepherd’s son from Meesow.  (Roggow A, 4/1836)

Marriage Record – Carl Friedrich Kamrath, stellmachermeister (master cartwright) in Plathe, age 26, son of Hofmeister (private tutor) Michael Friedrich Kamrath in Gross Roggow, married on 27 Mar 1857 in Hoffelde [Kreis Regenwalde, Pommern, Prussia] Wilhelmine Henriette Sophie Pribbernow, age 23, daughter of day-laborer Erdmann Friedrich Pribbernow in Meesow. (Roggow A, 5/1857)

Children of Carl Kamrath & Henriette Pribbernow were:

1.1.1. Auguste V Kamrath, born on 8 Jan 1858.

1.1.2. Otto Julius Hermann Kamrath, born on 9 Jul 1859.

1.1.3. Friedrich Albert Wilhelm Kamrath, born on 4 May 1861. He died on 12 May 1861 in Hoffelde, age 8 days, buried on 14 May 1861. (Roggow A, 17/1861)

1.1.4. Bertha Auguste Wilhelmine Kamrath, born on 3 Aug. 1864.

Death Record – Wilhelmine Henriette Sophie Pribbernow married to the cartwright Kamrath, born in 1834, died on 24 Feb 1865 in Hoffelde of colic, age 30 years, 11 months, 14 days, buried on 28 Feb 1865.  She left behind a widower and 3 children. (Roggow A, 4/1865).

Marriage Record – Carl Friedrich Kamrath, cartwright in Hoffelde, age 34, widower, married on 16 Jun 1865 in Hoffelde, Augusta Henrietta Wilhelmina Sense from Meesow, age 24, daughter of Christian August Sense in Vogtshagen. (Roggow A, 13/1865).

Children of Carl Kamrath & Henriette Sense were:

1.1.5. Therese Anna Wilhelmine, born on 12 Aug.1868 in Hoffelde, baptized on 6 Sept 1868. Godparents: 1. Krüger (pub-owner) Albert Leddin from Gross Raddow.  2. Miss Henriette Buss from Meesow.  3. Miss Ulrike Sense from Vogtshagen.  (Roggow A, 53/1868)

1.1.6. Albertine Emma Friederike, born on 5 Aug 1870 in Hoffelde, baptized on 28 Aug 1870. Godparents: 1. Albertine Dietrich née Hall from Hoffelde.  2. Inspector Friedrich Kamrath from Gross Raddow.  3. Friederike Kamrath née Giese from Gross Raddow.  (Roggow A, 50/1870)

[NOTE: The birth records of parish Roggow A between 1846 and 1866 were lost, so the birth records for Auguste, Hermann, and Bertha Kamrath were not located.  The records for Carl Kamrath Jr. (b 1875) and Ida Kamrath (b 1878) were searched for but not found in the Roggow A parish records.  Perhaps they were born elsewhere before the family moved back to Hoffelde/Roggow A where they were living in 1883 and 1885.]


Kamrath Marriage Records in Berlin, Germany 1877-1920

After finding the marriage record for my 2x great-uncle in Berlin, I decided to translate all the Kamrath marriage records I could find from Berlin.  As far as I can tell, none of these are directly my family, although the chances are that many are extended family (especially those from Kreis Naugard and Regenwalde).  I’m putting these here more as a community service so that the text will be searchable on the Internet.  The listings are in chronological order.

Enjoy!

Ancestry.com DNA Testing

For Christmas this year, I decided that I wanted to get my mother and father DNA-tested through Ancestry.com.  While it’s true that my family tree is extremely well-elucidated and researched, there are still pockets where certain things are unclear.  For example, I only know back to my 3x great-grandparents on my Krueger side (due to records from Pomerania being difficult to find and the common nature of the family name), so if we matched someone in the world who had Krueger ancestors it would indicate a link between those families despite the absence of documentation.  Similar situations are present for many of the Irish lines of my family due to the scarcity of records from Ireland.

So at Christmas this year my mother spit into a test-tube and sent off an envelope to be analyzed.   Yesterday we got the results back.

My mother’s DNA matched at least 20 people “closely” (5th cousins or better).  I’ll have to investigate each one!

It showed that she has 19% DNA from Scandanavia (that would be the Norwegian side, Hanson and Olson), 32% “Europe East”, which would be the Prussian stuff (Krueger, Hoge, Schmidt, Zierke, Schulz, Winkelmann).  Then 38% from “Great Britain”.  I assume this is the Irish from the Mullins, Hammond, and all the British stuff from the Curtis side of my family.  Then there’s 9% of the DNA marked “Other”.

I have no idea how much confidence to give these results.  I know from my research that my mother’s grandparents break down as follows:

Oscar Krueger: 100% Prussian
Edith Curtis: 50% Irish and 50% English
Olga Hanson: 100% Norwegian
Edwin Schmidt: 100% Prussian

So my maternal grandfather was 50% Prussian, 25% Irish, 25% English, and my maternal grandmother was 50% Norwegian and 50% Prussian.  That makes my mother 50% Prussian, 25% Irish/English, and 25% Norwegian.  The DNA results have much more “Great Britain” than predicted.  No idea what that means.

On the Schmidt side of my mother’s family there was a family rumor that someone in the family brought back and married a “Mongolian Princess”.  Interestingly, my mother’s DNA shows 2% of her genetics are from “Asia Central” which is the area around Turkmenistan and Northern Iran.  Very interesting!

Here’s the full breakdown of her results:

Great Britain 38%
Europe East 32%
Scandinavia 19%
Ireland 4%
Europe West 4%
Asia Central 2%
Finland/Northwest Russia 1%

As time goes on and other people are tested, we can see if more matches are found.
