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!
