Looking for Wendel family of Memel (Formerly Poland, Germany, Russia, now Lithuania) German heritage and ancestory
Hans Wendel had many many cousins who fled Memel in the mid 40s due to political turmoil. Interesting history. Most lost touch with each other. Apparently the cousins relocated all over world. I know of 2 cousins in the United States and one in Canada. There was a Marietta in Flagler's Beach Florida and an Adam in I believe Chicago. I never knew the last names of the American cousins, the Canadian cousin who was very close to Hans was Eimel Preikcas (not sure of spelling). I know information is very sparse but I have two younger brothers, Edward William and Rhonald Autor, a son, Nathan Wendel, who has a son, Jackson Wendel and I am trying to connect with any family that is out there. Thank you.
