-As I know my Grandfather also works on a "Rittergut" -The little town calls Damen (region Belgard) and it was near to Stettin -The name of the little river or creek is "Persante" -The owner of the "Rittergut" was the family "Kleist" -The brother of my Grandfather was Walter Neitzel -Both worked on this "Rittergut"
As I wrote in 2001 with my first posting: My father calls Manfred and was born in Damen 1940. He told me that he has a cousin also calls Manfred, but living in south Germany?
Karin, maybe we are distant relatives? It would be interesting to receive more informations from your father.
