95mischke/janke families to canada 1860s klein tromnau
- Jul 12, 2003Hi:
Wie gehts? My family is from Klein Tromnau, a number of families
went down to the river and then took a boat to the sea where they
used false names to go on board, because of fear of the King, and
then they took the eleven week sailboat ride to North America,
coming to Guelph, Ontario, Canada, and then later to
Williamsford,Sullivan Township, Grey County. This took place I think
in the early 1860s.
I understand there are Mischke and Janke families in the area still.
I am interested....Maurice Robinson, P.O. Box 592, Pickering,
