Looking for relatives from Marggrabowa/Olecko (Schwenkler, Doran, Balzereit)

  • Hallo! I am looking for any information on my family who are from Marggrabowa/Olecko.


    My Great-Great Grandfather, Frederick J. Doran, was born Dec. 16th, 1880 in Königsberg. His parents were Wilhelm Doran & Anna Louise Schwenkler, who were married 2nd Apr. 1877 in Marggrabowa. I know nothing about the Doran family.


    Anna Louise’s parents were Friedrich Wilhelm Schwenkler & Dorothea Amalia Rau, who were married on 22 Oct. 1852. Friedrich’s parents were Johann Schwenkler & Carolina Baldzeweit (variations include; Baldzieweit, Balczuweyt, & Ballenweyt)


    I am especially curious as to the origins of the ‘Baldzweit’ name and finding out more about the Doran family…. Would love to find some distant cousins!


    Danke sehr!
    -Kate

    Ich studiere gerade die Filme von Marggrabowa im Mormonen Center. Ich werde nachschauen, ob ich die Namen finden kann und melde mich wieder.


    Viele Grüße. Eva

  • Thank you, Lutz!


    I had seen the Marggrabowa heritage book, and it does have some helpful information, however I am hoping to find information on previous generations (parents, grandparents, or siblings)....
