New member searching for Menkowski
I am new to this message group. I am currently researching my great-
grandmother who was born in Grofs Lesewitz, Marienburg, West Prussia.
I have a certificate of some sort that is dated 1891 from the
registrar of Lesewitz. As best I can make out, her parents names were
Anton and Magdalena Menkowski. My great-grandmother's name was
Magdalena Elisabeth, but an aunt adopted her and brought her to
America and she became Elizabeth Krause.
I'm unsure of how to proceed, I've searched on many different websites
but am stumped with this surname. Any suggestions or information is
