Kropps from Netze/Posen area

  of 185

I am Joerg-R. Kropp from Berlin, Germany.

My Kropp ancestors came from the so called Netzedistrikt from several villages in Kreis Wirsitz (Posen) which belongs to Poland today and was Prussia/Germany from 1772 - 1944. I can follow the line to 1790. It is difficult to find informations before 1800 in this area. There are about 40 Kropps that I know up to now in this line. The following list give an overview on the towns and the time. All my Kropp family is of German language and lutherian and I think that they originally came from Germany.

Town Time
Sypniewo (near Vandsburg) 1777
Stebenke (north to Lobsens) 1788 - 1860
Kruske (near Lobsens) 1788 - 1870
Lobsens (Wirsitz/Posen) 1860 - 1900
Mrotschen (Bromberg/Posen) 1880 - about 1910
Berlin (Germany) 1910 - today

Up to now I have no connection to a Kropp moving to America but there are available a lot of Kropps in files of the IGI from the LDS Family Center.

Does anyone know about an activity to collect all the Kropps in one data base? I think this will be very usefull to get an overview to this family and will make it simpler to get connections.
