Looking for August Utesch of Pommerania

Journal by sandyutesch

I am looking for the town or village-rual are where my great grandparents came from ( August and Minnie Peters Utesch). They were married before 1873 when they arrived in the United States. My great grandmother's obituary states that she was from Hamreyotsnek. My ggrandfather lists Prussia the first time he comes to the U.S. in 1971. He returns to Germany and gets my ggrandmother. This time they list their nationalioty as German. On the 1880 census they list Prussia. On the 1900 census they list Pommerania. I am new at this. Hopefully someone has some suggestions.
Thanks.

Dear Sandy, Hi there. Welcome. I tried googling 'Hamreyotsnek' and nil results found. Then I tried other search engines like yahoo / answers.com etc. still nothing.

You would do best to study maps even old ones of Prussia. Google and you should find some.

EMIGRATION TO THE USofA
RootsChat.com - General - Emigrants - Emigrants to the United States

Join up as a free member of the rootschat site. Then click in the topic that says 'US Lookup Requests'.

For the UTESCH surname generally, use this powerful search engine The Surname Navigator, select country GERMANY, type in UTESCH, then press search. About 10 window boxes will open up full of lots of information. Also do the same search for UTESCH in America.

Good luck,

Are you sure her name was Minnie? Could it have been Wilma or something that sounds like (minnie)

These dates correspond with my info about ship, etc- but not the name- but it has to be her.
How do you do this so fast?
Thanks-sandyutesch

I do this kind of thing for fun. If I get stuck in my own family genealogy, then I look for others. I guess it kinda relaxes me. lol.

Sandy,
I may be related to you - although I'm not exact, yet on the connection. I have my Utesch line coming from Klein Parin (Little Parine), Schwartan, Germany. Rudolf (Henry) Heinrich Utesch(my 3rd great grandfather)immigrated in 1883 was buried in St. Paul's cemetery in Iowa. His father was Johann Ludwig Utesch (he died in Verneville, Germany) and his was Johann Christian Utesch.

Just thought you'd like to know....
Deanna
p.s. Alot of times (like now) people shortened names...Minnie or Mina was usu. short for Wilhelmina

Dear Sandy,

thank you for your message through ancestry.
I had some problems to answer you from my first (main) mail address wolfgang.horlbeck@blue-cable.de
Now I try it from a second address! I hope it will work!


I remember, I had send you a message with some informations about Hammer (now in Poland) end of October. Did you get it? Maybe I had the same problems as today?


Hammer is/was a small village near Jasenitz (I think this is the "YotsNeck" of your great grandmother!). The polish names now are
Drogoradz (Alt Hammer) and Jasienica (Jasenitz).

I have searched at Google maps and found it in the northern of Poland and near to the German border. I also found Eichhof. This is now a part of the small village Ferdinandshof and is in Germany!
In the past Hammer and Eichhof were in Pommern.
I'll attach you to this message to maps Blue lined is Hammer (Drogoradz) and the green arrows shows Jasenitz and on the other map Ferdinandshof.

I wish you Merry Christmas

Wolfgang Horlbeck

Sandra, in the following is the text of my message from October:

Dear Sandra,

thanks for your message.
My name is Wolfgang Horlbeck, I'm 63 years old and live in Freiberg/Saxony in Germany.
I search the family trees of HORLBECK family.
From my grandfather I got long time ago (he died in 1965!) an old German book, published in 1934, with the family trees of HORLBECK or HURLBECK family. I think, you know, in this time in Germany it was very important that you have no jewish ancestors. And one of the Horlbeck has searched all (the most) ancestors of Horlbeck family back to about 1500 !!!

The data of this book finish of course about 1920 ... 1930.

And I try to get more informations about the newer Horlbeck people and of the Horlbeck people, which went to America or other countries.
In the book I could find only some remarks to immigration facts.

I uploaded a family tree (Familienstammbaum HORLBECK - USA) to ancestry and hope to get more contacts and informations. In this tree I have collected also data from other trees (your Utesch tree).

I know, that August UTESCH, born in 1870, married 7th May 1892 Augusta HORLBECK. In Census 1910 they lived in Hammond, Lake, IN.
But I have not more informations about Augusta HORLBECK. (Her father in this tree - Xaver Horlbeck - is a dummy!)
Commonly I search for the parents of the husbands or wifes of Horlbeck people and the next one or two generations of descendants.
In the Passenger Lists of New York on 30 May 1870 I found August Utesch (born 1849) together with his son August Utesch (born 1870).
But the marriage of August Utesch (born 1849) with Minnie Utesch (Wilhelmina Peters) is on 21 Febr 1873 in Germany !!! ???
In the Passenger list of New York on 27 March 1873 we can find August Utesch (born 1849) and Wilhelmina Utesch, the immigrations after their marriage!
There are a lot of open questions!
But I think you have no informations about this Augusta HORLBECK ?

Please excuse me, that I have taken your data in my tree!

Sandra, to the place Hamrer Yotsneck: I think this is not a German word. But I found a village near Jasenitz with the German name Alt Hammer and Neu Hammer (old and new).
Jasienica (Jasenitz) - situated north of Police, it constitutes now one of its quarters. In its neighbourhood flows the Gunica river, on which once a river port was located. The Hotel Deutches Haus ranked among the most important buildings. In the market square there was an inn that marked the starting point for the road leading north to Trzebiez.
Drogoradz (Alt Hammer, Neu Hammer) - known already in the seventeenth century, the village expanded spatially after the Jasienica-Trzebiez rail line was set into operation in 1910. The views of new and old cottages, the inn and the village school.
And here is the link to a site with old photos: (most in German, a little bit in English)
http://lazowski.szczecin.art.pl/police/fotografie/jasienica/jasienica-de.htm

I found another link to a dutch homepage with a link to the old church books of Jasenitz. In 1666 there are three UTESS people!

http://www.kelch.nl/html/jasenitz.html
If you have some more informations or if I could help you with some searches in German sources, please contact me!
With best regards
Wolfgang Horlbeck

Some words to the spelling of names:
For the German name Wilhelmina we have several short names: Minnie is one and the other is Wilma. I think in the above discussion both are right for Wilhelmina Peters!
And the "Wilhe Utesch" in the passanger list is also this female person! A male should be "Wilhelm" or William.

And for the village 'Hamreyotsnek' I wrote in my comment above!
