Sommerfeld Genealogy.

Welcome to the home of the Sommerfeld family tree. The main focus is the
genealogy of Wilhelm SOMMERFELD and Elizabeth SCHENKEL. Their story
in America begins in the early 1900s. Wilhelm and Elizabeth both entered
this country through Hoboken, New Jersey. Little is known about Wilhelm's
and Elizabeth's parents. Wilhelm's parents, Ferdinand SOMMERFELD and
Paulina GRAMSCH, lived in and around Zduńska Wola, Poland.

Elizabeth's parents, Martin SCHENKEL and Anna Bernadina KLAPPHEKE,
came to America in 1903. Before coming to America they lived near the
Ruhrort area of Duisburg, Germany. The town they lived in in Germany was
on the Ruhr River.

Based on further research, I discovered Martin SCHENKEL was born in Wolf-
hagen, Germany. Martin came to the Bethlehem, PA area, around 1894.
Martin, wife Bernadina, and children came to the United States in 1903.
They entered through Hoboken and soon moved to Berks County,
Pennsylvania.

Further research will hopefully yield
valuable information regarding the family's past.

Connect with the Sommerfelds We are more than happy to provide infor-
mation regarding the Sommerfeld Family Tree Project. Any additional infor-
mation regarding the Sommerfeld name is greatly appreciated.

Wilhelm SOMMERFELD was born in Kalisz, Poland, on 20 May 1877.
Kalisz is considered to be the oldest city in Poland, mentioned by Ptolemy
in the second century A.D.

Wilhelm is the son of Ferdinand SOMMERFELD and Pauline GRAMSCH.
Nothing is known about the youth of Wilhelm, but it appears that he spent
his time growing up in and around the area of Kalisz.

Wilhelm made several trips back and forth to the United States, but the
most notable trip was the one he made in 1909 on the North German
Lloyd Line ship 'Princess Alice'.

Wilhelm SOMMERFELD arrived on 18 May 1909 in Hoboken, New Jersey.
He travelled with his sister Regina SOMMERFELD. The ship's manifest
mentions his father, Ferdinand SOMMERFELD, who was living in Zdunska
Wola, Poland at the time. This was possibly his last trip to the United
States because it is specifically mentioned on his naturalization application.
