My grandfather Carl F. A. Battüge was born in Mossin 4 December 1873. He emegrated to USA in 1892 and moved to Cleveland Ohio where he met and married my grandmother.
It is interesting that his parents were Frederich A Battügge and Emilie Auguste Drews. They were married in Mossin on 9 January 1871. Notice that a ‚g‘ is missing on the son’s name and after the marriage the family name was Battüge. I am not sure if this was a ministers change of if it was changed in duplicating or submitting to the registration office.
Frederich A Battügge was one of seven children born to Johann Wilhelm Battügge and Friederike Ulrich on 22 October 1844 in Wulflatzke. I have the data for the other children since one of them emegrated to the US and another had a son that emegrated to the US.
I have been unable to find the marriage data for Johann Wilhelm Battügge and Friederike Ulrich or anything about their parents.
I know that I have some ‚cousins‘ who live in Berlin with the last name Battüge, and at one time some cousins in Poland with the last name Battügge, however I believe this last group has all passed.
I have seen a request at rooteweb for information on a family with the last name of Battügge in Flatow and also have found family members with the last name of Battüge in Flatow.
I apologize that I am relearning German from my childhood and it is taking more time than I imagined, so I am writing in english.
I would like to upload some pdf files of German Records so you can see the pages and help me translate everything on them for my family members, however, I cannot find a way to do that on this site. If there is a way, please tell me.
I thank you for any help and suggestions you may have! Seeing more information than is found at the LDS site in Salt Lake is really wonderful.
Happy New Year to everyone!
