The Kiel Connection
(In a letter from Charles and Helen Pomnitz - September 6th, 2000)

...A young Mormon fellow spent a few hours assisting me.  He was great and very helpful.  We had no luck in trying to trace some of my mother's kin (names noted in her records).  We then went on to The Kiel Connection.  We found that there are some microfilms available in Salt Lake City at the LDS Library and have ordered in two tapes which may cover the period we are interested in dealing with at city of Kiel [Germany].  It will contain the census of 1855 among other things.  It will take about two weeks to get the tapes and then I will have to review them at the LDS Library.  The tapes will remain there for a month unless I ask for an extension.  The one stickler is that the tapes may be in Danish!   That area was under Danish administration at that time.  We will just have to wait and see what comes in.

When we are finished with those microfilms, there are microfilm rolls covering the Pomnitz Village and the surrounding towns.  There are two rolls dealing with baptisms and marriages.  They are parish register transcripts.  The one is for the years 1800 - 1870 and the other is 1871 - 1874.   They could reveal some interesting facts on the early family.  I learned about these in a letter from the LDS Library in Salt Lake.  We will send for these rolls when we are finished with the Kiel rolls.  It just takes patience as you well know...
