Thanks Maureen and Earl.  Your encouragement is much appreciated.  And I 
must add that if SGGEE didn't exist I would have no clue at all as to who I 
was even looking for at all.  At least I have some names and dates of birth. 
Yes, one day the brick wall will come down and there will be a fellow 
ancestor with whom I can compare notes and photos (which are all 
unidentified at the moment but are from the Chelm, Lublin, Lubelskie area of 
Poland.  I don't know if this is anywhere near the places you mention Earl??

I would love to do the DNA tests, but on Ancestry.com they do not yet accept 
tests from Australia.  I'm not sure about any others.  Everything seems to 
be a bit behind down here.  Perhaps distance travelled for the sample is an 

I did previously put up all my details (who I did have) but I didn't receive 
any replies, so assume no one knew of anyone I knew of.

I am a bit lost on the site and have not actually seen where I can add my 
tree/pedigree??  This is just one example of a relative of mine that I have 
found on your site (I have found many connections in the Trinity Lutheran 
Lublin records).  But I desperately want to find an alive person.

What I would like to ask is, how was this information found - what does the 
source refer to?  Is it a church record or an individuals Pedigree?  If 
individuals - how do I contact the individual?

I see that this mans father (August Krause) died in Volhynia Ukraine, but no 
date.  August is my Great grandfathers brother.

Understanding this may help me understand the connections.

Thank you

Michaelle -

Consider yourself fortunate to have learned people like Earl Schultz in the 
corners of the world you are searching!  I agree with him - and besides, 
after many years of trying to help people in my own small way, I know how 
satisfying it is to knock some bricks loose for researchers  (well, except 
for those in the Napa Valley EQ right now - all that wine!)  The people in 
this group are spectacular - and generous - so keep going!

Chin up, Michaelle.  Brick walls do fall.  How about sharing your pedigree 
specific information on the who, where and when of the person you are having
trouble with?  Lots of us would like to help.

Also, have you considered a DNA test for yourself and/or a male relative 
the Krause surname?  That may point you in the right direction and lucky 
are becoming more common.

If you have ancestry around the Sierpc, Lipno, Rypin area, we have a number 
dedicated researchers working on the records and many of us have also done 
tests.  There is also a Vistula River Project just getting going to collect 
from people from this area.  The future looks very promising for knocking 
some brick walls.

That is am amazing story, you are very lucky finding each other.  I am very
jealous, as I have found no one and nothing :-(.  I'll keep trying.
