I am searching for history of my grandparents, Ludwig Henkel and Franciska Michalewicz. I have attached a copy of my grandmother's birth certificate which is a translation made by the post office in Ashern, Manitoba. I need assistance with the birth certificate. Was my grandmother born in Austria? I have no marriage date or place of marriage for my grandparents - I suspect somewhere in Volhynia since their first 2 children were born there and emigrated to Winnipeg.) The info I have found so far:
Ludwig Henkel - born January 30 or February 2, 1873 at Malinowka, Chelm. Lublin, Poland - parents Christoph Henkel (born about 1836) and Christine Holtz (born 1841) - siblings were Christoph, Minna, Johann (married Julia Ruchotske in Volhynia), Sophia (married Alex Ruchotske in Volhynia) that I know of. Thank you to Sigrid Perry for helping with this information.
Franciska Michalewicz - born January 15, 1881. Parents Johann Michalewicz and Marie Tuczek. Birthplace - Austria? I have found nothing on Johann Michalewicz but believe my great-grandmother, Marie Tuczek was born September 6, 1844 in Czermin, Krepno, Poznanskiego, Poland to Johann Tuczek and Anna Prowaznik
Both of my grandparents emmigrated to Manitoba, Canada from Volhynia (wish I knew what place they lived in in Volhynia.) Ludwig between 1905 and 1908, Franciska between 1906 and 1908. Franciska came with their first 2 children, Carl and Marie, both born in Volhynia but I do not know where.
I need advice on how to find out where in Volhynia my family lived - no living relatives are able to help. Also help with the birth certificate for my grandmother.
