My Alwin relatives are looking for information about Andreas Alwin and the heritage before him. Andreas Alwin's son was Wilhelm or William who was born in area of Posen, Germany in 1825 and married Wilhelmena. They came to Milwaukee WI in 1854 and to Minnesota in 1855, where they had 8 girls and 1 boy. From there, we have accurate family history until the present. But we are looking for the background of Andreas Alwin from Posen area of Germany.
