    3. We have hit a brick wall in our Family Tree. What we know: Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Seidler, S/O; of Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Seidler & Friederike Louise Maria Weidemann(whom we have nothing but their name) was born June 5, 1844 & baptized June 16, 1844 at Sanct Sabinen Parish in Prenzlau. One baptism sponsor was Ferdinand Weidemann of Dedelow. Church records show nothing further on this "particular" Seidler Family. Many surrounding towns were checked & still nothing. Cannot trace this Ferdinand Weidemann-to many to trace without knowing his relationship to Carl's mother & his age. Our Carl left Germany via Bremen & Southampton England aboard the Arago in Oct of 1868. Another Seidler family was aboard same ship as him-traced that family to Illinois-but can make no connection. In January of 1869 he married at Shawano County, WI -marriage record lists no witnesses-only of Prenzlau & parents names. He has no Naturalization Papers even though USA Census shows he was Naturalized. No Probate or Will. No Seidler or Weidemann were sponsors to his children bapt. or marriage. Carl died in County of marriage. Tax records show nothing-land records show nothing. Naturalization lists little & no Declaration of Intent has been found. Thought maybe the Bremen location for the Ship Lists might give additional info on Carl, but no address to write to. Any other ideas anyone can think of where to write for more info on Carl? Thank you, Kathy
