I dropped by again to the Latter day saints [ Morman] site to see what they have on Sauke/ Saucke. I have seen something there before and I thought it would be a refresher. Often times something new has been added or maybe I see something else in a different light. Then, I find myself getting inspiration from this second, third or fourth viewing. [smile]
I saw Sauke / Saucke from Borgel and Bienbuttel Germany. One with the name Meyn.
I decided to proceed to the Naefke name, after all they will give me the census if nothing else. Easily in one glance with that name. The bonus for me is the supplied phonics of other ways of spellings used for the name.
Birth Records in Calhoun County Ia.
The bonus for you, who may like to research the Lohrville, or any township of Calhoun county area is the link to the compiling of birth records submitted to LDS from that little area of Calhoun county, Iowa.
It's just nice knowing that you can find it there at LDS. It's not new to me, as I have seen it before. I just thought I would share it, just in case one of you needs a reminder.
Haven't you heard the common layman say "Your researching your family, the Morman church has everything". And they take such satisfaction in that statement. I suppose the satisfaction lies in the idea that it will be there, if they someday want to start looking. Maybe it might all be collected there in twenty more years, but well I doubt it myself. I am thinking of some German churches who do not submit this information. And many communities in USA who are not that active with their Genealogical heritage. And the increasingly scary privacy issues.
Actually, I find that both Greene and Calhoun counties have been really good at getting the information out there. More and more places are so concerned about privacy issues, that the bars are slamming shut on availability of the information reaching us.
I am afraid that may be the case with church records.
I guess that is an important reason to talk / write to the others, who are researching the same families. The church may release something to a Meyer on the Grote / Meyer marriage, but not maybe a Kuhlman, who is on the Naefke end. ETC. Vicer Versa.
While there, you should check out the most useful and excellent advice they give for genealogy searches. I particularly like the section on letter writing that I use, when I write to the churches in Germany for information.
I hope you find something extra today.
Actually, what I haven't said, but it's prescence is felt in this page, which I just have to state finally after all. Don't delay in your search. Get going on it. That old saying may hold true. --
The early bird gets the worm.
I will look more now at my selected page.
21. Anna Maria Wilhelmina Naefke - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Birth: 31 AUG 1887 Lohrville, Calhoun, Iowa
See you later.
Note/Comment : I see an interesting location of some early 1700's Nefe or Nafke who made it to LDS of german records were from this area which, I provide as link of explanation of area below.
Sch. Holstein is a origination of the Nahnsens, Carstensens, Petersens, Andersens, Namanny and more surnames all of whom were attending the Farnhamvill church. Many had settled first at Clinton and Crawford Iowa before arriving to Calhoun and Greene county.
And on the note of the spelling of Nefe / Naefke. -- One person with name Nefe once married into a royal family. http://www.e-familytree.net/f16660.htm
