    1. Re: [BEHREND] Behrend Line from Hamburg, Mecklenburg, Germany to Cedar, Iowa
    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: RobAlbert63 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.behrend/56.2/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Not related, but ran across your post and noticed you mention this Behrend line being from one of the former Mecklenburg duchies, and also you mention Cedar, Iowa. Are you talking about Cedar County, IA, or am I unaware of a town called Cedar somewhere in that state? If they were living in Cedar County, IA, they may be from some of the same villages that my Goldsmith family came from in the very same part of Germany to this county. I might be able to give you a few pointers for things to check on that might help you with your search, so drop me an email off board at [email protected] and I can see what can be done. I also have a Behrend line from this area, but mine married into another line and the surname was lost going forward, but there are TONS of Behrends throughout all Germany and definitely in the Mecklenburg area. About as common as Smith and Jones I would say, or darn close! :) Robert Albert P.S. I still have relatives back in Cedar County, IA, even though my line moved to CO and WY and I am out here in CA.
