While Linda Pauling's information may be your most useful immediate lead, I
am also doing extractions of the Michalki (Rypin) Parish records which go to
1865.  There are lots of Holwegs and a couple of Klingers and Klinners in
these records.  When you get back far enough, some of these may be cousins
and if you are interested in this information, please contact me.
Eventually the information will also be available in the SGGEE databases.

Helwig siblings (nine of them) came to America from 1897 - 1912. The
oldest, Augusta says her last residence was Russia. I assume she refered
to Poland - Russia, since the rest lived in Nieszawa, Bobrowniki, Plock
and Rybit.

The siblings names are: Augusta, Edward Jr, Karoline, August, Mathilda,
Adolph G., Otto, Bertha and Emelie (Amelia?). First child born 1875.
Actually, I have found NO info on Emelia and so I can't say for sure
that she came over.

I see that some of these place names are duplicated around the country.
But I would bet that all the places listed above refer to the one in (or
very near) Plock (County? Provence?).

The 6th sibling to come over last resided in Bobrowniki and was born in
Lipno. His is the only specific birthplace I have.

I have enough info after they came over. But what I have stated above is
all I have before their arrival. I would like to learn more about them
but am still learning what may be available. Theres not much to learn
about them before they immigrated since they mostly came over in their
teen years.

My biggest challenge right now is finding info on their father Edward
Helwig and mother Minnie Klinger. Edward is said to have come from
Volska Budea (or Badea) in Europe or from Volakesbuden, Prussia on the
border of Germany. I have not found one place that seems to be related
to these names. In fact I have been told that they do not and never did
exist. I can only assume that they have a basis of fact somewhere.

Hopefully records from the places listed above may give a clue as to
Edwards origins.

Thanks for any help.
