Witt from Poland
Posted by: Keith Witt (ID *****4631) Date: April 28, 2013 at 20:44:07

I posted a message about a year ago about my great grandfather Heinrich. Since then, I have located additional information about him and my great great grandmother. My great grandfather is Heinrich Witt and was born in Ilow, Poland on March 18, 1872. My grandmother was Anna Witt. She was born on 12 April 1852 in Plotzk (Plock?), Poland. It does not appear that she was married when my grandfather was born as I have not found any information yet to indicate that she was. I do know that she was married to a Frederick Pernau in Ilow, Poland and that their first child, August, was born on 28 January 1882. Frederick was more than 20 years Anna's senior. He was born in 1831, but I do not know where. The immigration information indicates they lived in Wilno, Poland which is a fair way from Ilow. It is also now the capital of Lithuania. I cannot read either poland or german, so any help would be greatly appreciated. I am willing to help with research here in the states. I live in Pennsylvania and would be willing to take any pictures in a 100 mile radius for help in finding my relatives in Poland.
