Border between East Prussia and Suwalki Province

This map clearly shows the border at Eydtkuhmen, the one location two distant "cousins" both remembered that their -at parents spoke about.

About suwalkigermans

I started family research in 1993. My first two books focused on my maternal grandparents. Both families came from Kreis Rosenberg, West Prussia, to Big Rapids, Michigan. I left the Spurgats from Wylkowiszki in the Russian Empire as the third book because of the difficult and challenging research it required. After I published the book in 2010, I wondered what to do next. I thought I might try to share some of my research with others and maybe at the same time, by going digital, someone would find me. When you read the comments, you will see that happened. The best part of all this is helping others.

    Hi
    Wandering through your website I noticed a spelling error of Eydkuhnen (my sister was born there)

    • I used the spelling from the map so as to be consistent for the reader. Varied spellings of a single word are often troublesome as researchers do not know if it is the same place or another one that is similar. I have seen this location spelled both ways. I accept your spelling as the one you are most familiar with, but there is a “t” on the map.
