Apologies for interrupting, the thought came to mind that BC Archives has a Vital Records search engine - http://search-collections.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/Genealogy/BasicSearch

Search for Klingspohn and Klingspon and/or other variations in case there was a typo error..... I found 4 in those two variations.

in the US: 

In Wisconsin - there were 20 listed but all may not be accurate....  - http://www.peoplefinders.com/search/searchpreview.aspx?searchtype=people-name&fn=&ln=Klingspohn&mn=&city=&state=WI&age=&dobmm=&dobdd=&doby= 
then also  US Social Security Death Index  there are 7  https://familysearch.org/search/record/results#count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3AKlingspohn&collection_id=1202535
Wisconsin Marriage Index to 1997 had 10  entries   https://familysearch.org/search/record/results#count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3AKlingspohn&collection_id=1946794
nothing for 1940 census so may have immigrated after WWII......

Hi Gert,

For you and others who would like to know which Klingspohn families lived in Bielin (now in Lubelskie but considered to be Russian territory before WWI) to see if you might also be related to this Klingspohn family, you should consult the Lublin Project parish database. Volunteers have been indexing parish records and these include Bielin. You can search births, deaths, and marriages separately using Soundex here:

Searching Klingspohn only in Bielin finds 46 births, 11 deaths, 18 Klingspohn grooms and a pair of Klingspohns from Bielin who married. Remember, families may have moved around, so as you trace them back, search for parental couples rather than villages. Digitized records may be ordered from the Lublin Evangelical Lutheran church; information about this is on the SGGEE website on the url.

Gert, I hope you find even more cousins once other members see that branches of their family may also have lived in Lublin parish. Both of my parents' families lived in the Lublin parish from about 1860 to 1940 and my genealogy database has just exploded since I found out about these parish records and have helped index them.

My father was born 1909 in Bielin / Lubelski / Volhynia and came after the death of his parents in 1926 in the area ofKolmar to Seefeld / Laskowo near Samotschin (Szamocin). In 1937 he settled in Bismarcksruhm (Ostrowke / Kolmar). His possession included a small plot in Forest Kunkolewo Hauland. Our last visit there was in 2008.
