I am searching for a few places to start tracing this family in Germany/Poland. Johann Gottfried Kruschel was born 13 Oct 1806 in Langmeil (I believe it was part of Silesia prior to 1815). He married Anne Elizabeth Schulz who was born in Padligar 23 Nov 1806. They married 26 Dec 1831 in Padligar. Johann Gottfried Kruschel lived in Padligar for 16 years - presumably the time after his marriage.
The family emigrated to South Australia, departing Bremen on the ship Gellert on 28 August 1847 with four children.
His occupation was listed as a Bauergutsbesitzer and the family were Lutheran (and I believe regarded as "Old Lutherans").
Does anyone have any knowledge of this family? I would appreciate a few hints where I could start finding some more information about this family.
