My maiden name was Zillmer, however, my relatives are not from Posen. They are from Belgard/Schievelbein, Pommerania, Prussia. However, in my research I found this on another board from a lady I've been in contact with in the past, and she is researching the Posen Zillmers. Thanks!

I am looking for information regarding Johann M. ZILLMER, born 29 September 1810 at Schmolowa (near Schneidemuhl), Posen, Germany, who married Dorothea Elisabeth WITT, born 1811 at same place. They had 7 children that I know of: August (born 1835, the only child not to come to the USA), Wilhelmina Ernestiner (born 1838), Martin (born 1840), Stephen Christof (born 1841), Amelia (born 1844), Augusta Justine (born 1845), and Johann (born 1851). All of the children were born in the Friedheim Wirsitz parish area. I would also like to contact other family members researching this line.
