Matz & Braz in Heinrichsfelde, Regenwalde

Posted: 7 Oct 2012 3:21PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Matz, Braz, Lueck
I am working on the Matz family of what was formerly known as Heinrichsfelde, Regenwalde and is now known as Trzeszozyna, Lobez, Poland.

One of the family was baptised in Klaushagen, which is now known as Przyton, Lobez, Poland

I believe they came from Heinrichsfelde to America about 1885. They lived in the far west area of Cook County, IL. Please contact me at Paxpooh@aol.com Mitch Trier
