|About Pioch Schroeder Connections
The discovery of some letters from America, started our quest for more
information about our far flung "cousins" who emigrated from the parish of
Schwartow, and nearby areas in Lauenburg, Pommern, Prussia (now in Poland), in
the latter part of the 19th century.These siblings emigrated to America, New
Zealand and Australia.
I have tried to piece together a small tree showing
what we think are some Pioch /Schroeder relationships.
This website is created to perhaps
find and make contact with more family connections. I am indebted to those members of our
extended family who have provided information so far.Please feel free to email me with
corrections and updates. Also thanks to unrelated friends in America who have been so helpful.
some dates are only estimates based on census/death/or marriage information.
Update August 2005:
Some recent discovery of information from the parish registers of
Schwartow lodged at the Archives in Gdansk has enabled an update of these pages.
significant of these was the death entry for Wilhelm Friederich Schröder, listing his
but unfortunately not his wife.(Kirchenbücher, Schwartow Kreis Lauenburg,Pommern,
Archiwum Panstwowe w Gdansku, Sterbe-register 1853/41.)
