This an initial internet search for the genealogical history of my paternal family. As of this fifth day of February in the year 2000, little is known. My father, Kurt Gustav Wietzke, born in 1929 to Erna and Gustav Wietzke, was raised in Mecklenberg Schwerin. His mother died of ovarian cancer in 1934 at age 34. Several years' later my grandfather was taken by Russian soldiers to a concentration/work camp where he succumbed to starvation in 1944. Despite these life tragedies, the last name does go on, and I would appreciate obtaining any information relating to our family; other relatives, friends, neighbours, and most importantly, medical reports. Thank you.
