In Reply to: Carl Radtke family arrived in Galveston 1898 - Sterling & Union City, Oklahoma by Alex Maddox of 308

My wife and I are looking for her relations (see other message) for John T Radtke, his wife Winifred Mildred Page, and John's father Leo Radtke. We noticed the mention of Leo as a child of Carl and Elizabeth.

We have looked at the additional information given and have translated it with some comments. Hope that helps...

I came across this German webpage that appears to be a Church's baptismal records (can't read German!), that matches the time period and General location of my family. Have no idea if this is actually a connection, but on my g-grandmother's birth certificate from Charlottenburg, Berlin, her father's name Carl Radtke, has this long "Z" word in front of it that I couldn't quite make out. When I can across this web page, there is a Zimmerman Carl Radtke and taking a closer look at the "Z" word, that's exactly what it is. I don't know if Zimmerman is some sort of title or actually part of his name.[/I]
‘Zimmermann’ is his profession, a carpenter.

Journeyman Tailor Ernst Radtke from Bewersdorf (This looks like the same man as in number 101)

100.Margarethe Anna Marie, geboren 2. März 1903

für ihre Schwester Anna in Berlin

Godparents: Teacher’s daughter Bertha Vietzke from Klenzin

Karl August, born 26. July 1905

It looks like Carl and Ernst might have been brothers and Wilhelm mentioned in Number 97 another brother or son of one of the above, probably Carl and Friederike, making him brother to Theresa and Anna.

Hope that is some help.
