I am currently researching my family von Printzen. My g.grandfather arrived in Wellington NZ in 1875. I have managed to find the family in Arkivieronline.dk from 1734 but can't get back any further, though I know my 5x g.grandfather was born in 169

Question by vonPrintzen

I managed to find the family in both Danish and Norwegian military records and they show that my 5x g.grandfather, Friedrich Wilhelm von Printzen was a naval officer 'from a noble family from Pommerania og Brandenburg'. My question is whether anyone knows whether there is anywhere I can look in either Norway or Germany to try and find the roots of our family. There is a Hjob Wilhelm von Printz mentioned as 'one of an abundance of German officers through all grades who were sent to Denmark (he is definitely one of my family). His military records have his family crest next to them - an owl. The surname varies between Printz and von Printzen in differen documents.
