I have found that my great grandfather was Julius
BARNEKOW, his wife was Wilhemine. They left Germany
in Oct. 1881 and came to USA in Nov. 1881. They were
from ANKLAM. HE was born in 1838 and she in 1837.
They brought eight children to America with them, one
of which was my grandfather Charles. Although on all
papers he was listed as Carl on ships lists. He was
living with his father Julius when Julius died here in
Cleveland in 1897. I would so like to find out more
about the family and would like to know how to find
records pertaining to their family in Germany.
