- Good evening I've recently joined this forum. I've learned much from the discussions though my German is very limited. I look forward to learning more of my ancestors who emigrated to South Australia between 1841 and 1858. I'm not expecting that others will do the hard work for me - but a few hints along the way will help. It would be a bonus to link up with anyone who shares the same ancestry as I do but perhaps this is a bit ambitious. I've got to the point where I now need to continue my research with German/Polish records.
- The families from which I am descended are:
Krüger (Huta Powidz, Provinz Posen) 1847
Jenke (Rackel, Kingdom Sachsen) 1854
Materne (Ostritz, Provinz Brandenburg) 1858
Schultz (Bentschen, Provinz Posen) 1841
Semmler (Nekla Hauland, Provinz Posen) 1846
Menzel (Nekla Hauland, Provinz Posen) 1846
Schulz (Alt Beutnitz, Provinz Brandenburg) 1858
Kruschel (Padligar, Provinz Brandenburg) 1847
Jaeger (Rottstock, Provinz Sachsen) 1855
Dahlitz (Werben, Provinz Brandenburg) 1855
Kalleske or Kalliske nee Franke (Langmeil, Provinz Brandenburg) 1855
Altmann (Schloin, Provinz Schlesien) 1844
Klauber (Janny, Provinz Schlesien) 1855
Are any of these names in these locations familiar?
