I’m struggling to find records for my Frauenfeld family. Can anyone point me in the right direction or have any knowledge of this family?
So far, I have a record of Adam Frauenfeldfrom the SGGEE VKP records, as well as the microfilm record.
I have amassed a great deal of census info after they arrive in Canada ( 1897) Canada census’1901 to 1921
I have a copy of The South Edmonton Saga with the Frauenfeld story in it. This also has birth dates and locations. The birth villages for Paul Frauenfeld and his wife Lousie ( Lentz)
seem to be phonetically spelled Todrow, Gombin, Warschau, Poland and Kocherna, Novjevirsch, Kostnin, Poland . I’m assuming these are Gostynin and Gabin. So far, I haven’t found anything on microfilm
and have expanded my search by +/- 5 years and still no luck. Birth years for both are 1859, well within range of both parishes coming into existence.
I also have a church record of the family joining the Bruederfeld Moravian churchin 1898 They were formerly Lutheran
Last but not least, I have a ship’s passenger list of them coming to Canada ( the family name was badly mangled)
Would searching Catholic church records be the next place to look and if so, which parishes should I try – how do I access them? Thanks
