Need help confirming my 3X grandmother's name is Christiane Lange from suepplingen Braunschweig Prussia Germany

+5 votes

I was given information that a news article in the newspaper Braunschweigische Anzeigen  published the intentions of my Fricke ancestors from Suepplingen to emigrate to North America.  Three great-great uncles, Heinrich Wilhelm Julius Wilhelm Fricke b.1826: Andreas Conrad Fricke b. 1820; and Franz Heinrich Fricke b. 1831 have the same mother named Christiane Lange.   The eldest, widowed sister Joh.Julie Fricke Fahse's mother's name was Anne Agnesse Vahldieck,  My 3X grandfather was Heinrich Julius Fricke b. circa 1783.  Julius was widowed 2X.  I have NEVER heard of Christiane Lange before, but according to the article, she would be my 3X grandmother.  I CAN NOT track her down anywhere.  All trees list Frances Peters as the 2nd wife, (and my direct relative).  I can not track her down either but I am beginning to doubt the accuracy.

Sorry. The information does not match the dates and places I submitted.  Heinrich Julius Fricke, b. abt 1783, became Julius after coming to America via Baltimore in 1856.  He died in Papillion NE in 1863.  My mother was born there.

In the absence of any findings in on-line databases your best bet is to contact the respective parishes since prior to the 1870's vital records were kept in church books. The parish should be able to tell you what records are available and where they are kept.

For the protestant church:

Ev.-luth. Kirchengemeinde St. Lambertus Süpplingen

Breite Straße 45
38373 Süpplingen

email: E-Mail-Adresse der Gemeinde Ev.-luth. Kirchengemeinde St. Lambertus Süpplingen

For the catholic parish:

St. Bonifatius, Süpplingen

Breite Str. 26

38373 Süpplingen

No email address.

Thank you so much for your advice.  In August I received an e-mail address for the Protestant Church you indicated. I suggested that if they could not answer, to direct me to a researcher.  I have gotten no response, so decided to try this route.


Sometimes archival records are kept at a higher level than the parish.

Again, thank you for your input and interest.   I will just have to wait and hope for information.    Lenore
I should have asked for clarification of the second e-mail address.  Should

suepplingen be written ahead of   ?    Lenore
No, that is the email address of the Landeskirche Braunschweig, the next higher organizational level.
Thank you again.    Lenore
