my name is audrey. could your j. fricke be related somehow to my grandfather, karl fricke? i'm sorry, i don't have very much information. my grandmother was born in tenkitten, east prussia. she has always told the story (not often, it is like pulling teeth) that my aunt's and mother's father's name was karl fricke. he was older than she(possibly 6 years?). my grandmother was born feb.3 1920...gertrud charlotte gosch. they never married. the story is that he was NOT a nazi supporter and to protect her they never married??? it is difficult to pin down any information as my grandmother is very reluctant. i think she feels it is a "scandal" or something. i just would like to know what became of the man. she says he died (shot by friendly fire) on the frontlines during wwII. i am told he had sisters...was possibly the only son. what happened to the rest of his family? does the rest of his family know of the 2 daughters he had with my grandmother?
any information would be so greatly appreciated.

my email
