Welcome to the Heldke Geneology Forum
I'm trying to patch together the geneology of the last name Heldke and anyone sharing my last name is welcome.I haven't met any living Heldke's who aren't related to me, who originated from Rev. Gustav Heldke, my paternal grandfather, who immigrated to this country in 1904 from the Kaunus, Lithuania area, although he was German by birth. He had a sister and brother who also immigrated at the same time, although I've not found any information on his brother."Otto" is what my father remembers his name to be.
I've found some internet documents about a couple who immigrated to Australia from Lithuania in 1949 with the last name Heldke.
I also found a couple in Troy, MI with that name, although I understand they are now deceased.
Doing a search in Germany brings up a few names, and I'm trying to put the puzzle together.
