Beckmann Family Genealogy Forum
Thomas: Thank you for your posting. Do You know your great-grandfathers name?My lineage goes back thru my grandfather, Bernhard Christian Theodore Beckmann, B-1857 D-1943 (came to USA about 1886 from Meldorf). He had 3 brothers & 1 sister who might match-up with your Eduard.
Bernhards siblings were: Herman Claus Christian Beckmann(B-1853 D-1914); Wilhelm Peter Christian Beckmann(B-1859);
Adolph Friederich Christian Beckmann(B-1864); and Emma
Catharina Beckmann(B-1855). Doe any of this match up with your Beckmann line ? All of the above Beckmanns had father of Claus Johann Beckmann & mother of Auguste Dorothea Margaretha Ralfs...all from Meldorf, except Doris Ralfs(Americanized) from Heide.Let me know if you can track your Beckmann line back before 1800 as I do have some info on earlier Beckmanns.
