Hello from England!

I am German (now married in England) and I am also related to the Jeseritz family by ancestry. My only trace is the connection between the Jeseritz family and the Goldbeck family from Radwonke/Kolmar district, Posen, Germany/Poland. One of my great grandfather's relatives (Gustav Adolph Goldbeck, early 1800s) married a certain Jeseritz lady and emigrated to Woodlake, Minnesota. The family connection stopped soon after World War II when OUR Jeseritz family contact sent us a CARE packet via the Marshall Plan to devastated Germany presumably in 1948 /1950. They (I have no first names, it happended before I was born) sent the parcels to Paul Goldbeck (my grandfather) to South Germany. One parcel contained a very old German bible where in the front cover I remember seeing the address of Jeseritz, Woodlake, Minnesota USA./ The bible has been destroyed together with all communications according to the last will of my grandfather when he died in 1989 in Germany. Obviously he had been through a lot during the war and wanted to protect his family from whatever danger he must have perceived.
However, I have always longed to pick up the threads and contact my relatives in the US. Especially since I myself have no brothers and sisters.
It would be wonderful if someone of the Jeseritz family could find the missing Goldbeck link and contact me!!!
