Since 2012, I've traced my Krampitz line, 6 generations, to 1693 ..
They all were born in an area of today's Poland known as "Dobrina Land", an area from around Thorn (Torun) to Lipno. My grandfather, one of 8, emigrated 1904 and stayed in NYC.
Are we related? We'd have to compare family trees to be sure.. But by posting to several genealogy sites, I did manage to find 3 'unknown' cousins in Poland and Germany. Email me at gmail.com .. ID = my name with '.' between first & surname
