Re: Petersen of Flensburg, Germany
Dear Mr. Petersen:
I read with interest that you have been in Flensburg six times.I was able to go there for the first time in 1998.My grandmother was born there, and my mother took me on a nostagia trip.I suppose you have been to the library in the Weitzstrasse?I looked up my ancestors in the city directories there and looked up the building they lived in between 1865 and 1920.I have been trying to locate decendents by the name of Petersen and Kassner.People by the name of Petersen are as numerous as grans of sand on the beach(that is what one of my other Flensburg relative told me).
Maybe you know descendents of my Petersens:
Else Anni Marie (Rickmers) Petersen, b. 1901 Flensburg-1969 Flensburg.Married Erich Hermann Petersen, b. 1898 Flensburg-1986 Flensburg.
Käthe (Rickmers) Kassner, b. 1907 Flensburg.Married Emil Kassner.
For now I'll close,
