Surnames: Oertling
My Great grandmother was born in Schwerin in 1856. Her name was Amelia Oertling. She was the daughter of Ludvig Oertling. Many of my ancestors came from that city. I would like to know why they left and more about them. I believe i had an ancestor called Marie Oertling who died in 1860. If anyone could help me trace my family tree, i would be very grateful

Surnames: Bossow, Pfeffer
My ancestor Catarina Bossow md. Johann Pfeffer in the town of Demen. Could your ancestor be Bossow instead of Bassow? So many of the old German script letters look differently. Any connections?

grandfather George bassow

Surnames: Papke
My grandfather, Hans Papke, immigrated from Germany in the 1920's.

He was from Torgelow in the Pommern region (Pomerania), near the Polish Border.

I'd be interested in anything you may have learned of the Papke family.
