Does anyone have information on the Gunther's from Jasszow, Kammin, Pomerania, German Empire?

My great grandfather William Earnest Guenther came to America in 1870.  He lived in Michigan and married Nettie Arvilla Carothers.  He was born Marh of 1840.  On his naturalization papers he listed that he had left from Jasszow, Kammin, Pomerania, German Empire and his name was Wilhelm Gunther. His passenger records listed his name as Wm Guenther.  He died in Spokane, Washington in about 1920. He had divorced Nettie.

I have looked at records at the LDS History Library in SLC UT.  They did not have records from this town.  I have been searching for about four years.  My family cousins have been trying to find him for years.

I would appreciated additional help.

Hi, I don't know about him, but I know that the region you are talking about is also spelled in german as the following website explains:

"Die Gemeinde Jassow war Anfang der 1930er Jahre eine Landgemeinde im ehemaligen Kreis Cammin in der Provinz Pommern." (http://gemeinde.jassow.kreis-cammin.de/ )

Jassow b. Cammin i. Pom. (this is how you would search)

According to this website Jassow was a rural community in the former district of Cammin in the county/provinz of Pomerania.

There is a listing of Families that lived in that district of Cammin, and there is a entrance for Guenther from 1800 to 1940. you should go here for more info on this list: http://cammin.kreis-cammin.de/

Everyone would register in a town nearby, which is now Poland, and it is called KamieĊ„ Pomorski (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamie%C5%84_Pomorski and also http://kamienpomorski.pl/readarticle.php?article_id=57) Maybe if you contact old registrars there they may have some further info!

good luck!

thank you so much for this information.  I wrote to a person they said would have information on the Guenther/Gunther's.  I was so excited to get information that may indeed find my ancestors.
