Hi Michael,

Thanks for leaving so much info!
You'll have a much better chance of someone finding it (if they are searching for similar info).

One question for you...
It's nowhere near Alsace or Lorraine.
It's near the Baltic sea.

So I'm wondering what it has to do with your ancestor.

Was he born in one area and moved to another?
Are you aware of any information relating to this point?

Just something to consider.

Good luck with your search,

All I have is:
August Wilhelm Gaudian
BIRTH 20 AUG 1848 • Alsace-Lorraine, France, or Pammerania, Germany
DEATH 06 APR 1922 • Milwaukee, Wisconsin

I think Alsace-Lorraine is close to Stuttgart, GE. So, my thought is the whole area was Bohemia at the time and the traditional France and Germany boarder was in flux. Sorry, I can not provide more.

No Bohemia Here

Hi Michael,

Sorry but Alsace (nor Lorraine) was never a part of Bohemia.

Bohemia is on the other side of Germany near Austria and Poland. depends on when since it moved around a bit. But it was never close to Alsace ;)

Good luck with your searching,

You are correct. My mistake. Confused with my Fathers side of ancestry. My father's side is from Bohemia. So, please disregard previous statement for August Gaudian.
