Good evening - I too have links with the Sompolno region but have not had
any success locating my ancestors or possible descendants in the Lutheran
and Catholic churchbooks for this region. Indeed, things seem to be quite a
muddle for Lutherans living in this region prior to 1820 or so. My
great-great-great grandfather is Daniel Krüger who was a farmer at Trocken
Hauland (identified as Pogorzele by Albert Breyer -- approx 7km SSW of
Sompolno) known to be deceased by 1830. The Krüger name is somewhat common
and this surname name appears in the Sompolno church records but I have not
been able to establish any links with these Krügers. His son Christoph and
his family appear in the records for the Witkowo (Prussian partition)
Lutheran parish - residing at Hutte Powidz. Again, there are many Krügers
in these churchbooks but I have not been able to establish links with them.
This son (my g-g-grandfather), who I believe to be the youngest son
emigrated to Australia in 1847.
Does this resonate with anyone? Other family names of interest to me in
this "bordlerland" area are Siewert and Rachui (Rachuj). A year or so ago I
searched the SGEEE databases to no avail.
