It is my understanding that my family came from the Bromberg area (posen). My Great Grandfather Wilhelm Dahlke was married twice. . . I do not know his first wife's maiden name but I believe her first name (according to my now deceased Father) was Emma. . .she died in the United States (believe Illinois) after she had had two or three children - Anna and Carl (Charles). His second wife and my Great Grandmother was known as Minnie short for Wilhelmina. This family eventually settled in central Nebraska (my home as well) If you believe there could be a connection please get back to me at email@example.com
. My name is Larry Dahlke. In a couple census reports I note my surname spelled as Dolka. . . which could be extrapolated from Dahlka very easily. I am sorry I can not be more helpful with my Great Grandfather's first wife's name or surname.
