Great photo, good looking girl

I posted a query in a Posen Forum asking for info on church books from Karge around 1800.
No luck. the only records known are from 1818 onwards.

You could try mailing the parish of Karge / Chwalim

Thanks Dave … that probably explains it if there are no records before that time the mystery may remain .. I can only guess that Johanna and Wilhelmine were sisters or cousins of some type. 

Although it has Gotlieb not Gotthilf so maybe not

Dave … would you mind translating this one … I think it’s Gotthilf Erns Rau husband of Johanna Christiane

The age is out going by the marriage but I think it’s him

Hi Dave thought I would try upload a photo of my ancestor Emma Amelia Rau daughter of Julius and Augustine Rau née Boehm.  She was my first Australian born ancestor. You just have to love the hat.

Hi Dave … I hadn’t seen that one but surely that wouldn’t be our Wilhelmine Habermann née Klemke? She would of only been 13 in 1826?

Death Christiane Rau

Unruhstadt, 26.3.1879
informing person – Hausbesitzerin (Houseowner) Emilie Arlt nee Rau
resident in Unruhstadt.
Reported that her mother, the Ausgedingerin (retired farmers wife) Christiane Rau nee Klemke
73 years 8 months 14 days old – evangelisch
resident in Unruhstadt.
Born in Chwalim, formerly married to the deceased Gottfried Ernst Rau
daughter of unknown parents
died in her home on the 25.3.1879 at 3:30 pm

Wow … I guess this at least gives us her approx birthdate and born in Chwalim like Wilhelmine
I just can’t find births for either of them

Thanks Dave for your help … surely the missing piece of the puzzle is out there.

Have you got the Rau_Klemke marriage cert?

There are no parents mentioned, but could have some other info of interest

I’ve seen it but as usual apart from names I can’t tell what’s in it … I thought I also found the death Gotthilf although his age is off going by the marriage .. will find it again.

So frustrating can’t find a birth record for her so it just seems I can’t quite connect her to Johanna Christiane Rau née Klemke … can’t find a birth for her either. 

Thank you Dave … a few more pieces if the puzzle! I think you are correct that looks to be Johanna Christiane Rau née Klemke

Is there anything of help in her death record? 

Thank you!  How have I missed that one … maybe because it’s under Christiane but looks like her daughters name there too
