Dear Ms. Hillmer,
I have the same situation with so many of the same names. Sometimes the
calling name is underlined in the birth certificate.
The name Engel, as has been previously explained, means angel. It is also
the last name I am researching from the Varlosen/Immenhausen area. I am
willing to share any information, if you are interested.
Best of luck in your research.
Helga L. Ziegler
