Guten Tag, Betty,

unfortunately you do not mention whether your ancestors were Catholic or Evangelical Lutheran. I checked Hans-Jürgen Wolf's "Einwohnerdatenbank" [Database of inhabitants] on for your persons, but no result. Maybe you can get some more help if you post a query in the forum of

By the way, where was Zelmarostowo? Could not find it in the "Ortsverzeichnis" [List of places] on Hans-Jürgen Wolf's site.

Good luck with your further research! - Willi

Hello Betty,

the correct name of Zelmarostowo is Zelmerostwo. This little town were in the "Kreis Berent", near Danzig.

In this town were also living Jakob Kirstowski and Christian Engler, so we are a big family!

Many greetings
