Re: Wolter/Wolters Lineage
My line of search seems not to have moved to North America. Only one (Friedrich Wolter
my father) moved to Argentina. East Prussia/Ost Preussen was their home turf.
First names show much allegiance to the Prussian Empire,as it was customs in those
times. WWII may have doomed most of this Wolter group.
The similarity of first names in your search group with mine, may be they come from a similar tree. However, however Friedrich, Wilhelm, Heinrich were common names due to Prussian or Saxon and Silesian duques.
NOTE: Our group is Wolter (not Wolters).
My known WOLTER tree branch:
PLACES OF SEARCH: East Prussia/Koenigsberg;
etnic German areas occupied by either Russia or Poland after WWI and WWII; East Germany, West Germany, Germany.
WILHELM WOLTER b.ca.1840, m.Wilhelmine Schwab/e. They had children, two names known:
JULIUS EDUARD WOLTER b.ca.1861 d.1929, m.
Emma Klause b.ca.1861. They had 5 children:
Friedrich Wolter m. Lidia Gogolin (*)
Therese Wolter m. ........ Eberhart
PAULINE WOLTER m.Friedrich Fellau, no information about children.
(*) My father, German teacher in German etnic areas in Poland, was forced in 1924 to move back to Germany or foreign country. After first visa attempt to Canada/USA was delayed, moved to Argentina (fast track visa). Friedrich and Lidia had 10 children,
all remaind in Argentina except one sister moved to Germany and myself (finally) made it to the USA in 1968.
NOTE: I have yet to find a WOLTER related to my branch! I will keep searching.
COMMENTS and pointers are welcome.
Good luk in your search.
Greetings to all the Wolter of the world!
Federico G. Wolter
