About Our Family Research
I am researching Schoenlanke, Posen, Germany in the early 1800's. Today the city is known as Trzcianka, Poland. My family's church records are in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Schoenlanke. My great-great grandfather came to this country in October, 1855, on the ship Agnes, landing in New York City. My maternal grandparents came from Gardin Regenwalde, Posen, Germany in 1902 to Varna, Illinois. My wife's father came from the island of Bornholm, Denmark in the early 1900's.
