Hoffman explains how a plague caused many families to escape Spandau and wander away.[1]
A plague raged at Spandau from 1611 to 1613. In consequence the records of the churches are at this time extremely incomplete - They often containing not even the given name of the deceased. Many families escaped and wandered away.

Which familes left? Where did they go?
