Wulf - Fehmarn Island

From the Fehmarn Island, Baltic Sea, Germany

The WULF Family on Fehmarn has a lot of information. This page is designed to show DIRECT CONNECTIONS ONLY in the Wulf line, which navigates from Fehmarn over to America. There are lots of family members/names/surnames NOT shown here. Some families only list surnames within the family, because the time frame enters privacy of the living.
The diagram was included here, because Wulf/Blissmer become related via 2 Langbehn sisters (Wulf/Langbehn married on Fehmarn and Blissmer/Langbehn married in America).
For anyone seeking further information or connections to the Wulf Family, please contact WOLF (Wulf) Family. This individual is the only known spelling change of Wulf to Wolf in America in this family.

This data is transcribed, and I apologize should any errors occur. Your understanding is appreciated. Please follow up on ANY information you may find via the internet. Contacts are provided to enhance your/our research.

            ** COMMENT FOR ABOVE, Jürgen Heinrich Wulf:
            Jürgen had a 2nd wife, Wilhelmine Catharina Friederike NATH, and 8 more children.
            In 1870, this marriage produced twins, Christian & Theodore Wulf.
            Step-brothers to Johannes Matthäus Wulf, both have been identified to be in Calumet City, Illinois, with descendents.
            Christian married a Wilhelmine, who died 16 June 1960 at age 84.
            Wilhelmine's obit lists 11 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.
            Known family surnames include Peterson, James, Scheidler, Jarzombek, Cotner, and Smiedzinski.
            Christian Wulf died in 1948
            Theodore Wulf (85) died 19 Mar 1955, in Hammond, Lake County, Indiana. (Next to Calumet City, IL)
            The obit mentions 3 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.
            Theodore's son, Henry Wulf, 54, of Hammond, IN, died 5 Aug 1950 in East Chicago, Indiana.
            Family surname includes Eisaman.

This information gives us the connection of WULF ancestors, back to those in Germany, on the Island of Fehmarn in the Baltic Sea. Members of this family are identified in Calumet City, Cook County, Illinois. Other Wulf names appear in the same area, but as yet have not been connected.

The 4 church parishes on Fehmarn seem to have excellent records, some back to the 1300's. Showing only the direct line here, the Fehmarn Database provides more names of the Wulf families at Fehmarn, and approx. 140,000 family names.

Langbehn, Blissmer, and Wulf were all associated with St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church In Calumet City, Illinois. The original German church records have been microfilmed, and are available at the South Suburban Genealogical & Historical Society, Hazel Crest, IL. Check their web site at: SSGHS. The films are also available at LDS.

If you have information, or a connection to, any of the Langbehn, Bliesmer (Blissmer), or Wulf (Wolf) families above, your communication would help expand knowledge of our family in Germany (And America). A friendly tip on where to rub the magic Genie Lamp is appreciated too. E-MAIL: BLISSMER
