Including records of the surnames Gresens and Steingräber, that have not been included nor excluded from our lineage.
We've been examining the civil records from the city of Stolp, Kr. Stolp, Pommern and several adjacent villages for the years 1875 through 1878.
This is currently called the city of Slupsk, Slupskiego, Poland, but at the time our ancestors lived there it was part of the Pommern province of the Great German Empire, Prussia.
The city of Stolp is located in the Kreis (lit. circle) Stolp. A map from 1871 is included on this website for reference.
These old civil records for the city of Stolp include many surnames associated with our Gresens lineage but we were only able to tie-in two with certainty, These are the marriage records of :
(1) Ernst Georg Gresens and Bertha Wilhelmine Fredericke Kurrasch on April 5, 1878
(2) Ernst's sister Johanna Gresnes and Heinrich Schröder on April 30, 1875.
The records are handwritten in German, have been microfilmed and copied; so not everything in the records is legible.
