This is my first contribution to the #52ancestors challenge from “No Story too small”
My ancestor for this week is my 2nd great granduncle Claus Hinrich KRANZ, born January 6, 1838 in Lübeck, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.
Below you find his baptism entry from April 14, 1838 of the churchbook from St. Andreas (St. Andrew’s) in Schlutup, the most eastern part of Lübeck.
He was the oldest son of the fisherman Hans KRANZ and his wife Lucia BADE.
On December 19, 1868 he married Anna Margaretha Elisabeth BADE in St. Andreas in Schlutup.
I traced him and his family through the censuses 1871, 1875 and 1880 for the city of Lübeck:
As you can see in the 1875 and 1880 census they had one son born in 1873, at least one surviving son. They had one infant stilborn son in 1871.
I didn’t find any death entry for him yet.
