Re: Just Starting & need some direction
would like to get the information you found, too.
maybe i could help if you need translation from german to english.
as far as i know the family goes back to some polish/russian roots, comming from Wolkow/Volkov
i am the son of Joern Wolk, who had a brother Paul and two sisters Karin and Ute. their Parents were Walter Wolk (*around 1910, died 1965) and his wife Gertrud Wolk , who was born as Gertrud Meier in the Frankfurt/main region now known as Hessen.
because i just got started myself i want to collect as much information as possible.
i was born in Meppen, a small village close to the dutch border, so if you find something indicating a family branch in this direction, please let me know.
my mum Helga wolk, was born as Helga plagge, daughter of Bernhard plagge and angela plagge. angela was born as Kaufer, bernahrd was son to Hermann Plagge and Elisabeth Plagge , born as Heß in 1897. He had several brothers, i only know Hermann and Otto, but as far as i remember Elisabeth had 11 children.
P.S.: when looking for german relatives check if a Bernard isn't realy a Bernhard, this seems to be a Name often used by this family
