    1. ♠[GERMAN-KINGDOMS]♠ Looking for Bechmann(s) in Thuringia
    2. Hi all, I'm researching my Bechmann paternal family line, and have reason to believe that my ancestors may have originally lived in Thuringia during the Thirty Years' War (1630-1660) before migrating to SW Germany. I've used http://geogen.stoepel.net to look at current-day concentrations of Bechmanns in Germany, and it seems the highest concentration is in the state of Thuringia. I've checked out lots of lines with "Beckman(n)" spelled with a K, but they don't seem to overlap; my "Bechman(n)" name with an H seems strangely specific. Any Bechmanns on this list from Thuringia, or know of same? Thanks! -Stuart Bechman

    1. [GERMANKING] FRILLE! BRANDT, BANTE
    2. gaynorelomaa
    3. Dear Paul & Frieda, Hello, it's Gaynor again, I've just noticed something else in your letter. You say your ancestors BRANDT were all members of the church in Frille. I have BANTE which I know is sometimes spelt BANDT. Could there be a connection? here is what I have. Father: Hermann Heinrich BANTE #3633 Mother: Anna Iisa Margarethe DARLATH #3634 Daughter: Marie Dorothee BANTE # 539 b 26 Jan 1777 in Quetzen 44, married Johann Heinrich STADING #110, b 1772 on 4 Jan 1807 in Frille. Marie died on the 10 Jan 1843 in Wietersheim 26 and was buried 13 Jan in Frille. Marie had 4 children: #540 Carl Heinrich #926 Heinrich Friedrich Wilhelm #1428 Christine Catharine Luise #1599 Johann Heinrich It would be a miracle breakthrough to find any connection, fingers crossed in the meantime x, speak to you soon Gaynor Elomaa

    1. [GERMANKING] emmigration
    2. gaynorelomaa
    3. Hello all listers I'm hoping to pick your brains. My ancestors STADING lived in Frille and Hamburg, they emigrated to England. I have found out that Heinrich Charles STADING b. 1835 was in Middlesex, London England in 1864 (info from daughters birth cert). And in 1881 he was in Liverpool England. 1. How would I find my german ancestors emmigration or naturalisation papers from Germany to England, is there a searchable database on the net? 2. The Census survey for 1881 in Birkenhead, states that he was born in Hamburg, yet all the other ancestors where born in Frille. Could this be the place he emmigrated from rather than his birthplace? 3. How far is Hamburg to Frille? 4. What would the reasons be for choosing to emmigrate between 1864-1881to England, and why specifically England and not America which the majority did? 5. What would happen to a 3 month old baby in Frille in 1795 left with her Father after the death of her mother, would she be placed in an orphanage? Any ideas on how i would find records for her, or does anyone have a similar situation? 6. where would i find information on the causes of death especially children aged from 2 months to 12 years of age from 1796-1819? 7. How or where would i find out if one of my ancestors was in the military? Rumour has it that an ancestor of mine was a 'uhlan', a Prussian Knight can anyone give me information on this atall or where i might find such info. Thanks for reading, & good luck to you all in your own searches, i've noticed a few success stories lately on this site. Gaynor Elomaa gaynorelomaa@supanet.com P.S Has everyone got the free downloadable Personal Ancestry File from Ancestry.com?

    1. Re: [GERMANKING] Fwd: Grandpa Schakel - - - found
    2. gaynorelomaa
    3. Hello Paul and Frieda, I read your story about your visit in Germany. My ancestors are also from Wietersheim 26 from 1772, (thats as far back as I have gone so far). They were all married and christened in Frille. I was wondering about the church that you visited. Was it protestant? Is this the only church in Frille? And did you by any chance meet anyone by the surname STADING???? Its a long shot, I know but I couldn't help asking, I hope you don't mind. Could I also trouble you in giving myself any information/education about the area. Maybe an ancestor of mine was a witness to a marriage of one of your ancestors (again a long shot). I don't know if you are aware that Ancestry.com provides a Ancestral File that you can download from the net for you to compile all your ancestors on, it's a great program and doesn't take long to download.

    2. Jeannette Harper via
    3. I would appreciate help in finding more information on the family of my great grandfather. What I know: Johann Christian Alwin Franke was born 31 May 1864 (Northausen Germany); he married 21 Dec 1891 Eleanor Hellwig (Chicago Illinois); died 21 Feb 1933 (Chicago Illinois); he arrived in the U.S. 12 July 1890 via SS Wieland arriving in NYC. His father was Johann Friederich Franke, born 11 Nov 1834 (Northausen ah Hartz Germany ­ a bricklayer) and his mother was Marie Christiane Eleonore Schroedter/Schrodter, born 22 Jan 1833 (Crimderode Germany) (There is a notation on the church birth record ³ the parents named this child ³Whilhelmine² Sponsor at baptism: Christian Schroedter, farmer in Gross-Werther; Eleonore Hagenfeld from Niedersachswerfen and Marie Friedrich Diessel from Crimderode) Johann Franke¹s father is listed as Adolph Friedrich Franke (his occupation was brewer) and his mother is Marie Sophie Caroline Hartleb. I have a possible DNA match (or two) on Ancestry.com but the lady and I have no way to connect our great grandfathers. I had some research done on this family a few years back and unfortunately that researcher is no longer available. I am mainly looking for siblings to my great grandfather and would appreciate your help in suggestions and ideas. I thank you in advance for your help!
