Hi, my name is Delano January and I was born in 1977 in Windhoek, Sudwest Afrika. I'm looking to find more information on my great grandfather Paul Bernhard Gentz. Born 14.12.1881 in Zampelhagen, Kreis Naugard, Reg. Bezirk Stettin, Pommern.
He was 27 when he left Germany, Antwerpen on 12 Aug 1908 on a ship called the Feldmarschall for Afrika, Swakopmund. He's occupation is listed as soldier.
I have reason to believe that his father might have been named Friedrich.
