I was reviewing some of the marriage records I’d received through the Poznan project to see what clues I could find to discovering family members or insights on the family relationships for the Plenzlers.
- The marriage was witnessed by Andreas Plenzler. The record indicates clearly that Andreas is a brother to Joseph. (“Frater”–brother in Latin.)
- There is a record of a Martinus Plenzler marrying Josepha Zyz on the same page. The marriage is record #10 and dated June 9 1851.
So we now know that Joseph had at least one brother, Andreas.
If you investigate the record for Martin (Martinus), you’ll also notice two things:
1. That Martin was a widower (viduuus e viso Pietrowo — a widower from Pietrowo, a town in Poznan)
2. That this marriage was witnessed by Jacobus (Jacob) Plenzler
The Poznan Project’s database does also list several possibilities for a marriage for Andreas Plenzler. Near future, I’ll write to Lucasz and attempt to get further data as well as research Martin and Josepha.
