Pat, our branch of the Klingenberg family came from South Russia in 1876. They lived in Hamburg, Germany in 1850 and later Danzig, Prussia, which is now Gdansk, Poland. They emigrated to Russia around 1860. Many Germans emigrated to Russia from 1764 to 1860, originally at the invitation of Czaress Catherine the Great, who had come from Germany. My Klingenberg family lived in Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Colorado prior to coming to California in 1919. I hope we can find a link even if we have to go back a couple of hundred years. I visited Germany in 1995 and stayed in Klingenberg, Germany, near the Main River and saw the ruins of the Klingenberg Castle.
