December 26 – Catharina Marie Elisabeth Hennings

Our second day of christmas. If you think the first one with December 25 has already been lazy, you can imagine that December 26 is even worse ;)

On December 26, 1991 Mikhail Gorbachev resigns from his office as Head of State of the Soviet Union. This action marks the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

And December 26, 1764 is the founding day of the German Society of Pennsylvania.

I just have one event on my family tree for this day.

Catharina Maria Elisabeth HENNINGS died on December 26, 1906 in Upahl, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany

The censuses of 1867 and 1900 show her living with her family in Upahl.
