i´m still searching- but for now i can tell you that my family moved around 1880 from the Baltic to the north of Berlin( where my grandparents died in the late 1980s). It seems that the origins can be found in Denmark. there are slightly hints that ancestors went from there to Latvia oder Lithuania. My parents now live near Hannover (Lower-Saxony/Germany). Because of my father being the only child, i haven´t any knowledge of further relatives.
