Good Morning from California, USA. I am looking for information on the Feske/Fiske family from Brandenburg, Prussia.
What I know:
Michael A Feske b: September 26, 1936 in Brandenburg, Prussia
Married Wilhelmina "Minnie" R Unknown July 28, 1865
She was born December 4, 1842
They came to the US about 1868 with a neighbor Otto Becker b: December 22, 1844
According to Michael's death certificate in the United States his parents were John Feske and Elizabeth Bowmen (I don't know how accurate this is).
Michael had a brother John David Feske b: September 23, 1834 Brandenburg, Prussia
Married Augusta Amelia Michaelis in 1864
She was born August 18, 1842 Falkenstine, Prussia
They had 2 children in Prussia before coming to the States in 1871
Bertha Mary Lizzie Feske b: January 2, 1869
John August Feske b: November 24, 1870
No ship record has been found for Michael or John. Any information on the family would be greatly appreciated. Michael and Wilhelmina are my GGG Grandparents. Michael passed away in 1919 and Wilhelmina in 1926. They first went to Wisconsin for a few years then to Michigan. THey finally made their forever home in North Dakota. Look forward to hearing from you. I can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
ps is there a website to look up archives from the Brandenburg area?
