My great grandfather's name was Heinrich Witt. He was born on 18 March 1872 in Gellow, Poland. His mother Anna Witt (yes, her maiden name) was born on 12 April 1952 in Plotzk, Poland. Records (in German) from the church indicate that Heinrich's father was John Kunkel.
Anna married a Frederick Pernau. They lived in Gellow, Poland where August Pernau was born on 18 January 1882. Anna Pernau was born on 20 June 1887 on "the Luxer" on the voyage to the United States.
I would appreciate any information anyone could give me that would help me connect with the family in Poland.
