The current issue of Ancestry magazine has an article about Polish research. It
set me to thinking about my husband's family. This is strange but I wonder if
they were polish way back when? The
area I have them coming from in the
1800 is Pommern, especially Kreis Stolp,
Rummelsburg and Lauenburg. When I
look at maps of Poland back in the 1600 and 1700 I can't figure out if the are of
our ancestors is Pommerm or Prussia or Poland. The names I research are
Lohroff, Villwock and Schwochow. I have not done much research in the area because I do not read German and can
not decipher the records. I am only curious, are our families German? or perhaps way back Polish? Sure would
like someone's opinion on the subject.
