Goodness me!  Sounds like a fun place to stay! Probably just as well it no longer exists. Worthy of a Hollywood script.

Your a legend thanks Dave Ö we are away from home at the moment in Darwin (Northern Territory of Australia) visiting my husbands sister and her husband.  We will be back home Monday.  So it seems one of the sons was still alive at the death of the father.

I donít think to date Iíve found any baptisim records for the Belickeís

Thanks Dave Ö thatís very interesting that they have Carl as deceased Ö I need to try and find the marriage between Carl and Paula to determine if this is our Carl Wilhelm Belicke

But Iím guessing the only way they could move forward even if he was alive was to pretend he wasnít because Carl had married Emma Rau by now and was still alive. 

I think I also found a possible sister for Carl.  Will pop that one up next.

Thank you so very much!

Thank you so much thatís very helpful Ö definitely seems to be from the same area.  Havenít managed to find much more on Hermann yet.

This one we believe might be our ancestor Carl Wilhelm Belickeís son born before Carl came to Australia.  Still no idea why they didnít come to Australia.

This is one and going by the record this Belicke family are from same place Carl was from so wondering if there was anything helpful about Hermann

Thanks Dave Ö my ancestor was Carl Wilhelm Belicke he was born in 1850 and he married Emma Rau who youíve been helping me with her side.  Carl is a bit of mystery in that he was married when he came to Australia but for reasons unknown his wife and child/children didnít join him and then he got Emma in a spot of trouble and married her.  Iím told there were photos of his family back in then Prussia but were destroyed by a family member in WW2 out of fear as Carl was interred during WW1 even though he had been Australia many years and was naturalised he was eventually released due to poor health.  So Iím trying to piece his family together.  We know via records his father shared the same name and his mother  was Fredericke Heckert.  His home town wasnít a big place and the earliest records are we believe via his grandfather Christian Belicke he was part of a group of Mennonites that settled the area.  Iíve found a few Belickeís and so their records might help me see where they might fit Ö no rush if you are busy.  This is Carl

Dave Ö are you still out there :-) I need some more help if itís not too much trouble.  Iím investigating the other side of the Prussian family, the Belicke line and they are a bit tricky as well but there are a few records that I thought might be helpful but of course I canít read them.  Let me know if you can help.
