Are you still researching Pooch from Pritzig? I am unfamiliar with that surname, but my grandmother is Alvina Ernestina Caroline Krueger, born Mielke in 1886 in Pritzig.Pritzig isn't a very big place, so I would bet our ancesters knew each other.

Alvina's parents are August and Auguste Mielke, born Rojahn. I believe August was born about 1852. Their son, August, was born in Nov 1873; Matilda Johanna was born Mar 1879; Auguste was born in 1883. These siblings emigrated in 1892 to Rib Lake, WI. I do not know and would like to uncover what happened to their parents.

I did recently find reference to my grandma's grandfather, August Mielke (what else could it be? they were stuck on the name!) as witness at a wedding in Besswitz 30 Apr 1875. The groom's mother's maiden name is Kalk and that matches notes I have that my grandmother spoke of a "Grandma Kalk". August Mielke was 49, so that makes him born about 1826 in that neck of the woods.

I'm curious what you've learned about your family and this area of Pommerania!
