Hello, My name is Dankert. My grandfather was adopted by his aunt in the 1910s. She was married to a Dankert, who was one of the city bridge keepers of the city of Lubeck. When he retired, he was awarded a watch and bronze medallion citing his years of service to the city. The family was small, living between Lubeck, Grevesmuhle, and Gramkow. I know that there were some living in perth amboy NJ, after leaving Mecklemburg.
