I'm glad there are other Reichows out there looking.

I have a Paul Reichow who is a great uncle(my name is Paul as well). He lived in Oklahoma, died in 1976 at the age of 101.

He was one of four children born to Wilhelm Reichow who came to america 1880 from Koslin Germany(now Poland?). The other three children of Wilhelm are Anna? Frank, and William Herman, who is my great grandfather.

I would appreciate any advice from people who have searched Germany/Poland for Reichow ancestors.

Hi Heather,
I don't have much information right now.. but I am a "Reichow".. My grandfather was Warren Reichow from Milwaukee Wisconsin. I also have heritage to Ireland but now sure how.. If I come across any information I will let you know or free to email me if you have any questions I might be able to ask family about.

Hey Paul: I've just started looking for Reichows. My grandfather was Willy F. Reichow, born 1889 in Koslin, son of Frederick J. Reichow who was married in Germany (Prussia) to Hulda Maria Gehrke. Do you have info?

There is an Augusta Reichow in my family...but I believe back in Hamburg Germany. At least Im positif there was a Gustof.....married Amanda Mankey and had a son Fredrick who traveled to Milwaukee Wisoconsin. Fredrick would have been my great grandfather was Warren who did quite a bit of family research. He died in the 80's but did not believe there were many Reichows in Milwaukee.
