I have two sets of ancestors, one maternal, one paternal who came from Pommern.
On the maternal side the surname is Poenradt later changed to Penrod. The first ancestor came to New York around 1710; one of 3,000 who came in ships provided by Queen Anne of England.
My paternal relatives came to Michigan in the mid-late 1800s and early 1900s. Their surnames are: Schultz, Tollas, Loraff & Reischke.
