Kartenmeister. This website allows you to enter surnames of ancestors from Pommern, with the results showing the former German name and the current Polish name for the village of origin. I then plugged the Polish name for each village into Google Maps to discover the close proximity of the villages possibly inhabited my Wege, Justmann, Leitzke, Brockhaus, Gehrke, Wesenberg, and Viergutz ancestors.
beta FamilySearch database where I made a somewhat shocking discovery. There is marriage information for Louise Leitzke, a daughter of Johann and Louise. It turns out Louise’s maiden name is also Wege. Her birthdate is December 1823, making it entirely possible that she is Friedrich Wege’s sister. If that’s true, it means my 2nd great grandparents, William Wege and Wilhelmine Leitzke were 1st cousins. I need to find the parents of Friedrich and Louise to confirm this.
Just goes to show you should keep your friends close and your relatives even closer.
