Hello all, I am descended from August LABOMASCUS (Americanized from
Labanauskus, etc, perhaps?) who emigrated from Trakehnen, Eastern
Prussia, to Marinette, Wisconsin in 1872.
His father's name was Christian LABOMASCUS, and his mother was
Henriette (nee SPUITH).
Is any one else researching ancestors from Trakehnen, or have more
info on the village? All I know about Trakehnen was it was near the
famous Trakehner stud. Some or most or all of the workers at the
stud MIGHT have lived in the village.
Any information greatly appreciated. Thank you.
