My 2 gr grandfather Johann Brodt was born 1817 in Morgenstern Prussian Poland (Pomerania) & died 1878 in Zechlin (same area). His death cert shows his parents as Martin Brodt & Maria Maschke, both possibly born in those villages. His wife Wilhelmine Krofs was born 1818 in Zechlin, emigrated to Chicago with kids 1880, & died in Chicago 1901. I have tons of info on the extended Brodt family in Chicago. I would like to connect with anyone researching or related to or descended from the names Krofs & Maschke in Poland, Chicago, or even Germany. Thanks in advance.
