Re: [Prussian Genealogy] English speaking contacts in Germany
- My family name is Wilkie, formerly Wilke, from W. Prussia, near Gdansk, Krakau or Danzig. My grandfather arrived in New York City, U.S.A. sometime after the first World War. It has been told to me that my Great Grandfather was a German General under the
Kaiser & was called Heinrich Von Wilkie. Can you tell me anything about this ?/
