Another one of my DNA matches led me back to Pommern with the name Kaske. Hopefully this historic family tree can help others as well. It seems that the Kaskes were a farming family in Lülfitz. Aside from the grandfather of the subject of this study, Christian Kaske, many others were known to farm in Lülfitz. […]

I began researching the Dworsky family in the summer of 2015 when a fellow researcher turned my attention to the Stolper Heimatkreise e.V.’s Globalindex. Feeling discouraged by my lack of findings–this was before many of the Standesamt records were indexed by the Pommerscher Greif’s Personendatenbank GreifX and six months before the Koszalin Archives uploaded their digitized […]

Up until this point, the focus of this study has been predominantly fixed around the central axis of the Dworsky surname. However, in this case, it makes more sense to examine the lineage based upon one woman who married into the family: Sophia Nowcen. Curiously, she was registered as having married two men named Hans […]

While doing research, I noticed a DNA match on a side that is not in my tree. I traced the immigrating generation back to Pommern from the U.S. and noticed a pattern with some of the names and locations in the tree. I am of the opinion that the connection along this tree is to […]

Gergen Dworsky was born about 1726, and was possibly the brother of Paul based on Taufpate records. He died on 07 Apr 1800 in Wendisch Karstnitz at the age of 74.

Paul Dworsky died on 01 Aug 1769 in Wendisch Karstnitz, Stolp, Pommern. No information can be observed about his age or birth. Records indicate that he was married three times. He was first married to Maria Albrechts, who died on 29 Oct 1758 in Wendisch Karstnitz. The Lupow church book states that Paul was a […]
