Pribbernow Records in Roggow A, Kreis Regenwalde, Pommern

There are a small number of civil records from the towns of Roggow A, Meesow, and Hoffelde where my Kamrath and Pribbernow families lived.  I have, so far, found no Kamrath records – which in itself is a useful piece of data.  But the Pribbernow family is well-represented in the records there.  This document is a translation of records I found mentioning any Pribbernows.  There are also a few records for the Sens family.  (Carl Kamrath married Henriette Sens when his first wife Henriette Pribbernow died in 1864.)

I will add to this document when I get to the second batch of records.

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.


New Kamrath Info

Got an email last night from my cousin Lisa Machan. This news is related to Ida Kamrath (my great-great grandmother Bertha Kamrath Krueger’s sister) and her husband William Synott:

I’ve been in touch with Mollie Crain, who is related to the Synotts. She sent me copies (by snail mail) of family records that she has and included a tree copy for you. I opened it tonight and found something from the UWSP Archives in Steven’s Point. Apparently there was a Wausau centenniel project in 1939 and William Synott and Ida filled one out.

In it, Ida says that she was born May 5, 1978 in Stettin, Germany! Also, she lists her siblings and fails to mention Bertha (!!!) although she mentions Helen (John) Tisch born 29 July 1866, living in Tacoma, WA; Anne Petra [Petrie] born 12 June 1868 and living in Marinette, WI; Emma (August) Oelke born 5 August 1870 and living at 225 3rd Avenue North; Carl Kamrath (dead).

Henrietta [Ida’s mother] is listed as having the last name “Sense” and both Carl [Kamrath] and Henrietta were listed as “born in Germany.”

The “Stettin” listed is likely not the town of Stettin, but rather the District of Stettin in Pomerania. There are two towns called Roggow in the District of Stettin, Pomerania. I’m not sure which one was the place listed on the Kamrath passenger list yet, but Stettin is a huge port city and it would have been easy for Carl and Henry Krueger to stow away aboard a ship there assuming the Kruegers also lived relatively near to that city.
