Subject: [SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN-ROOTS] Where is Balfanz?
Date: Wed, 9 Feb 2011 10:11:42 +0800
Can anyone please help me with the location of a place called "Balfanz". It doesn't appear in Müllers Ortsbuch.
Google maps asks the question "Did you mean: Balfanz, Germany near Canada" !! then goes on to say "We could not understand the location "Balfanz, Germany"
The context is from a 1947 marriage register entry from St Lorenz, Lübeck. In the handwritten part, the names, including the place names, are in roman script, where other parts are written in süterlein. I am therefore confidant that I have read the "Balfanz" correctly, as in
"Martha Maria Margarete Kunde, hausgehilfen, ledig, evang. geb. 18.4.1920 in Balfanz, wohnhaft Lübeck Falkenburger Allee 60"
