- I just got my first look at LDS film 245497 and found the birth record for my grandfather Carl August Stuve. I am sure that a person more experienced in reading German handwriting would know my great-grandmother's name. It is Wilhelmine and what looks to be "Kauzewski". Is anyone familiar with that as a surname from West Prussia in the mid to late 19th century?

From the late 1700s until the end of WW I, Poland did not exist as a
country. It was divided among the Russian, German (Prussian), and
Austrian Empires. These divisions were known as Partitions.
There was Russian-Poland, German-Poland, and Austrian-Poland.
There are 10 Sadki located in the Ukraine.
The southern Polish territories around Kraków and Lwów were
incorporated into the Austrian Empire and renamed "Galicia".
Galicia was formerly a Austrian Kröneland and part of Austro-Hungarian
Monarchy (1867-1918). Sometimes referred to as Austrian Poland.
Other names for the area were Galicja (Polish), Galizien (German),
Halychyna (Ukrainian) and Rus Halicka (Polish).
In 1918, Galicia was annexed to Poland as "Malopolska" (Little
After the 1939 partition of Poland by Germany and Russia, East Galicia
became part of Ukraine while West Galicia remained in Poland.
Its former territories are now shared between southern Poland and

After the Second World War, all the territory of the former West
Prussia became part of Poland. The German inhabitants either
escaped or were expelled and were replaced by Polish refugees.
