This is my 1st post, listing some of my family who were born and lived in
Ruskoleki, Pechratka, Nowy Borek, Paproc Duza (Konigshuld). I have the
village plan showing residents of Paproc Duza & Mala and also the village plan
of Srebrny-Borek. I am looking for a village plan for Pechratka.
My family and some names I am researching are Strandt, Strand, Szrant,
Spitz, Steinmeyer, Koeber, Wink, Plazick/Platzig, Kruger, Krause, Fehlberg,
Rinas, Dressel, Gyssyng, Wildemann, Martens, Britsch, Hafeman, Schutz. My
"Strandt" family were German Lutherans who mostly immigrated from about 1890s
to abt. 1922 and settled in NY, Newark New Jersey and the surrounding
I am looking for ties and family of my G-Grandfather Alexander Strandt,
born 1867 who married G-Grandmother Anna Plazick/Platzig, his sister
Wilhelmina Strandt, born 1870 who marr. Gottlieb Stienmyer (1st born Augusta born
1892 before immigrating), his brother Friedrich Strandt, born 1859 and wife
Helen Koeber immigrated in 1922 from Nowy Borek. Friedrich's son Johann
Strand marr. Minnie Wink. Her father was Ludwig Wink. Friedrick's daughter
Helena (imm. 1912) married Alexander Strandt's son John Alexander Strandt (1st
cousin marriage). Other sons of Friedrich Strandt are: Wilhelm & Edward.
Wilhelm marr. Mathilde (possibly Gyssyng/Gissing) with children Olga, Emma
and Arthur. Edward married Johanna Dressel whose Naturalization records
involve Sigmund Winkel, Siegmund Penk and August Schultz as witnesses. Probable
relative Carl Strandt (28) and wife Emilie Strandt (17) immigrated from
Ostrowski in 1898 with friends Ludwig Schutz (24) and Emilie Schutz (15) but
I do not know what became of Carl and Emilie Strandt.
My G-Grandfather Alexander Strandt's parents Teodor (Theodor) Strandt and
Fryderyka Malgorzata Spitz, married in 1851 were found by Carol Burns in
the Paproc records. Alexander born 16 April 1867 in Ruskolenki, with
witnesses Jan Wildemann and Dawid Martens. Godparents: Jan Wildemann and Suzanna
Spitz. A later film (1923) shows a marriage of Robert Aleksander Fehlberg to
Leopoldina Emilia Strand. Leopoldina is listed as daughter of Ferdinand
Strand and Rozina Rinas. Looking for more information on Fehlberg, Ferdinand
Strand and Rinas.
The Spitz family: Leopold (born abt. 1885) and wife Augusta Spitz were
witnesses for my G-Grandfather's 2nd marriage to Martha Kruger (nee Krause).
Brothers to Leopold were Edward and Christian. Family were from Pechratka.
Julius Spitz (nephew to Leopold) born 1895 married Clara Britsch. Julius
had a brother Ludwig Spitz and a sister Albertina who married a UNKNOWN
Hafeman. Leopold, daughter Elsie and niece Olga went back to the old Country
and are found immigrating back in 1938. I am looking to tie these Spitz to my
GG-Grandmother Fryderyka Spitz.
I am looking for more information about my family and villages and I would
like to correspond with anybody with the names in their family or about the
villages before I look at microfilm. There are many locations I can't
find: Ostrowski, Smolee, Szimall, Grzymain and Grzcinski. Any help would be
appreciated. I have recently become a member of SGGEE and am looking for
member contact and suggestions on best usage of the SGGEE site.
