Re: Zielke siblings to Australia
My great grandmother, Henrietta Zielke (Derseweh)was born in 1852 & married in 1873 near Danzig.She immigrated to the U.S. in 1878 and lived first in Dayton, OH and later in Ridgetop, TN.Her brother Herman Zielke also immigrated to the U.S.Herman was married to Nola & their children were Lucy (B: approx 1898) and Catherine.
I know that the Dersewehs considered immigrating to Australia, which might be a connection to the Zielkes who immigrated to New Zealand.
Some German locations associated with Henrietta Zielke are Raxcine (Rexin?); Branensdorf (Braunsdorf?) and Nie Chico (Nietzkow?).Let me know if you see any connection.
