Re: US Schwilk's 2000
My name is Jarrad Swilks. I have a photograph of one of my ancestors. On the grave stone it has the names;
Ernest Gottlieb Schwilk ( in brackets it has the surname Swilks) and Johanna Dorothea Schwilk (in brackets it has swilks). It also says: Born in Germany Loved and respected by their descedants. It is dated 7/05/1876. Somewhere between the death of this couple and the birth of my grandad, our surname was changed from Schwilk to Swilks. Somehow we are related. If you find out anymore information on our family, or if you already have some which you would like to share, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope this has helped in your search.
