Jane Swan...... In view of what you have explained re Prussia/Hanover
etc. How can I check that my ancestor a Fredrik Andree came from
Celle Hannover or another place as being Zelle or Zella Prussia.
Fredrik Andree was writen down as coming form Zelle or Zella Prussia
and written elswhere as coming from Zella Germany ? I have no records
of Fredrik Andree's birth or his parents but would like to find out
more if i can.
If any one has any ideas of how to obtain a list of persons (and their
families) who went to (Ceylon)) Sri Lanka from Prussia/Hannover as my
ancestor Fredrik Andree went to Ceylon(SriLanka) around 1750s,
possibly before. He married Anna Maria Douwe in Colombo, Ceylon(Sri
Lanka) in 1759.
I am also researching another ancestor namely Godfried Koch born 11
Sept-1734 in Alt-Rippin,Brandenberg,Germany, he also went to live in
Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) If anyone has any info on same I would be most
pleased to hear from you.
I am trying to trace my family roots from Prussia and Germany and
would love to hear from anyone who may have info on the above. Thank
you for any help or info you can give.
