Jerry,  ok, so I will jump in.  I have been researching my husband's family 
since1978, names are Loroff, Villwock, Schwochow.  I have belonged to this 
group for a long time, and never have I seen those names.  Isn't it strange 
that someone isn't researching at least one of them?
Just thought I would throw them out.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
