Over the Christmas Holidays in 2003, a "cousin," his wife and I were forturnate enough to visit the area of Germany where our ancestors lived.Jens Müller-Koppe, historian and genealogist from Bremen, Germany who has done extensive research for me on the Rubbert family was our guide and translator for the Kreis Randow, Pommern area which used to be in East Germany.Some of the villages and places we visited were Boock, Rothenklempenow, Vorwerk (no longer exits), Dorotheenwalde, Koblentz, Mewegen, Grünhof, Stolzenburger Glashütte, Pampow, Schmagerow, Löchnitz and Pasewalk to name some.Jens has helped me to trace my Rubbert/Robbert family bach to Christian Rubbert who was born about 1658 and died in 1728 in Gorkow.My highlight of the trip was "Sylvester Eve" (our New Years Eve) services at the Mewegen church where my great-grandparents attended and their first three children were baptized before coming to America in 1869.
The names that I am researching in this family and area of Germany include:Rubbert/Robbert; Roggow; Matz; Ziehm; Zahnow; Kielgas; Greinert; Bartels; Behm; Carow; Permon; Prey(en)and Krause to name a few.
