Kranig Family Genealogy Forum
In researching my step-Dad's lineage as a favor - I found out that his gggg grandfather Friedrich Ernst Kranich/Kranig came from Cuestrin, Germany with his wife Marie Dorothee Henrietta Hirsch. They soon moved to Helena, Montana. I am looking to connect the link overseas to where they originated. I don't know if Cuestrin was a temporary location or if they lived in Cuestrin for a long time. Friedrich Ernst Kranig's parents were: Johann Friedrich Kranig and Eve Marie Tischler. Does anyone have any information about this line of Kranig's? Or, about any Kranig's in Cuestrin?
I have read some of what is on the site http://www.erfde.com/gedcom/pafeng/pafg518.htm#7863 which has some Kranig's listed in it - but am not sure if any of the Johann's are related to this group. They all seem to come from Christiansholm. Also, there are some that comes from Koenigschuegel - wherever that is! Not being familiar with Germany - I am basically starting in Berlin where my step-Dad's particular family emigrated from - to NYC on the ship 'Germania' or 'Germanic' in 1871.
Thanks for any info about the Kranig's in Cuestrin. Apparently, many records were destroyed in churches there during and after WWII. Wondering if any family bibles survived?
