Greetings from Texas. My people immigrated from Lusatia (NE Germany) in 1854, to Galveston TX. They were "Wendish" people who left to escape linguistic and religious oppression, settling at Serbin TX, where they built a Lutheran church and a small town. Today, all that remains is the church and a Wendish Heritage Museum. Serbin is located near Austin.

Thank you for your information. I really appreciated it and will check it out and keep in my files. Did any of your Schades come to US? If so where did they settle? The area I come from in Mn. has many Koester families living there. Are they related somehow to the Schades? Thank you again.

Hi Ardis, Johanna Schade m Johann Koester in 1814. That's when I lose the Schade name. In the next generation I lose the Koester name when Hanna Koester married Joachim Regling, 1840. I'm not aware of any of these surnames coming to the US. When my grandfather Mueller (grandson of the Koester-Regling marriage) came, he joined a couple Mueller uncles in Nebraska.

I've heard that "Koester" means keeper or caretaker of sacred things. It's an occupational name that was used all over Germany.

Thanks for replying.

I'm searching for any of my grandfather's family that may still be in Germany. His name was Joseph Bergman, born in 1847 in what was then Metz, Germany. He emigrated to the US in 1873, and married my grandmother in 1875 in Lewiston, MN. They had 6 children, and I'm also looking for one of Joseph's daughters named Ida. Joseph died in 1921 in St. Paul, MN

Hello
My name is Craig S. Schkade. All my ancestors are also from the Serbin area including Schkade, Lehmann, Wagner, Kurio, and a few others. While searching, I do see the name Schatte sometimes. My question to you is, what is the Sorben/Wendish translation of your name? It could be of great help to you depending on where you are in your research. Also, I'd like to say that I will keep an I out for your name while searching. Lately I have been into the microfilmed church records thru the LDS. I have seen the name Schade but not Schatte. It would help if you knew the Sorben translation. Please feel free to call:
H: 817-548-1986
W: 817-335-6511

Sincerely,
Craig S. Schkade

Thank you for your message. I believe the meaning of my family name (in German)Schade is "pitiful one". I researched in Schwerin, Mecklenberg Germany archives a couple of years ago. I did not run into any spellings such as Schatte. In Germany Schade is pronounced Schada. Did your family come from the Mecklenburg area? I will keep you e-mail in my file and call you soon.
