Hi I have found sketchy information on Andrea Pankratz who was born in Prussia, Germany in the Swedish region not far from Kellen in the villiage Pschokofka. this was the year 1630. He is the earliest ancestor of whom a record is found. He had a son Andrea, who had a son Jacob born in 1696,followed by a son Andrea in 1731 followed by Jacob in 1763, followed by Jacob born in 3/27/1796 in Prussia and married Sarah Buller, they had Eva in3/21/1837 born in Alexanderwohl, South Russiashe was the 7th child and she married Corneluis P. Wedel. I can go on from there but that was the end of the Pankratz name in my tree. Would love to hear from anyone in this line.
