    The clip concerning the casuality list of WWI says that


    Gustav Maßheimer
    * 14 January 1887 in Reichenau [=Richnau], Kreis Briesen
    was seriously wounded
    and according to some private information prisoner of war
    on 1 October 1914
    .


    My latest finding:

  • Thanks Willi,


    I cannot imagine losing children like they did back then.


    Perhaps this Gustav survived he war. I am looking now.


    Joe

  • No problem Simone, just wanted to make sure that I did not have something wrong (which truthfully is not unlikely). Having dealt with the Polish archives via mail, I know you are right about the Family History Center being easier.

    I happened to find one more Masheimer girl:

    By the way the Westpreußen email address works since my mail hasn't been bounced back yet. So try again.


    Have a nice day.

  • Willi,


    I am embarrassed to say that I did not spell the email address correctly. I have sent all of the information to them.


    Guten Tag!

    I wonder if the groom's father is identical or related in some way to your Carl Masheimer. The groom might be a son of a possilbe first marriage. Just a guess!


    Willi

  • Yeah...that's the only thing I can think of....church records will be the only thing to solve that. Then again, this record shows Carl dead in 1905 and I think he was the witness on the civil registry record for the illegitimate Gustav born 1905 and killed in WWII. I guess this was December. If anything this might also indicate the elder Carl's year of death. I'm going to the death records now.

    Greetings


    Willi

  • Guten Tag Willi,


    Not sure what your opinion is, but based on Wilhelm's birth record I am guessing that Martha is likely Carl's sister. I have added Martha and the Bethel's to my tree. I am still stumped by the Carl married to Henriette Bott. I cannot wait for the church records to come onto Archion so I can figure it out. I have been told that I can write the central church archives, but it seems that I will need at least the years of occurrence for them to look for the records. Interestingly, I recently did a search of the Masheimer name on Facebook and located people living in the same area in Poland as well as around Berlin (where the Gtustav killed in WWII had moved to).


    I recently wrote the WAST and requested the military records of both Gustav's. Unfortunately, they will not give me the records of the Gustav killed in 1942 because I am not a direct descendant and do not have his family's permission. They were kind enough to tell me that the records of the Gustav wounded in WWI were destroyed in Berlin during 1945.


    Thanks again for your help. As we say in the states (mostly around New Orleans), Happy Mardi Gras! Stay safe!

    Greetings,


    Willi

  • Willi,


    Thanks again for a another gem. I know that their church was Schonsee, which was also at one point in Gollub (obviously same area). Martha appears to be the elder Carl's sister, so I assume their mother was Katharina. This is the first time I have encountered this spelling of their name. If Archion ever gets this area digitized I will match everything up.


    Thanks again,


    Joe

    Thanks again. I am trying to piece all of these together. I am thinking that it will all make even more sense when the Archion has the church records available that cover my great grandfather's birth. Its obvious these are all relatives.
