Carl Friederich Christian Kelling 1818
Posted by: Russell Kelling Date: March 31, 2000 at 20:55:42
  of 176

Carl Friederich Christian (Charles) Kelling (1818-1898) and his brother Johann Friederich August (Feodor) Kellin (1820-1909) emigrated from Mecklenberg Germany to Nelson, New Zealand, arriving 1 Sept 1844. Lived near Klutz, Mechlenburg and worked on the Count Ranzau Estate. Travelled to New Zealand on the "Skiold".

Feodor was a Grand Master Chess Player.

Charles had 12 chldren and is my great-grandfather.

I'm trying to fill in some very large holes in my family tree. My father had done quite a lot of research (he supplied above info and some more), but I have been unable to find any of this research since he passed away a few years ago.

Is there anyone out there who can help. Maybe the New Zealand connection will help some of you close out some missing pieces in your own family trees.

Thanks
