Welcome to the Kevin Duerinck German Genealogy Page--Weichbrod(t)

Scope: To list my German WEICHBROD(T) family and to request assistance from other German families in completing my German family tree. Looking for any Catholic Weichbrod(t) families from the Danzig, Germany area in the early 1800's, late 1700's. There were 27 people living in Gdansk, Poland (formerly Danzig, Germany) in 1990 with the surname of WEICHBRODT. We miss our Rudolf Weichbrodt, who was left behind when the family emigrated to Chicago, Illinois USA and always wonder if we have relatives back in Germany.

Last Revised 6 February 2024 (thank you to Corrine Bass, and previously to Nancy Breuss Weiler, Zoey Smith, Albert Fatla III, Dave Breuss, Nancy Breuss Weiler, Paul Himes, Cary Micheau; Barbara Sausser; Tammy Fatla; Laura Tierney-Walkenhorst)(see notes toward bottom on 1772 LAND REGISTRY IN WEST PRUSSIA). Also, the Weichbrod family, or Weichbrodt family as they were logged on the Baltimore Passenger Lists, 1820-1948, all departed from Bremen, Germany and arrived on 26 May 1882 in Baltimore, Maryland. The S.S. Strassburg ship list includes Amalie (b.~1835), Amalie (b.~1877), Carl (b.~1832), Carl (b.~1879), Gertrud, Hedwig, Paul, Rosalie, Therese (my great grandma). The S.S. Strassburg left Bremen, Germany on 1882-05-10. (previous contributors: Paul Weichbrod, Jr.; Staff Sergeant Fatla; Gail Ann Hodges Levis re more Zirkel info; Mary Louise Weichbrod Thompson Fatla.)

At the time of his World War I Draft Registration Cards during 1917-1918, he had worked as a clerk for the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad. The 1930 U.S. federal census has a Charles F. Breuss listed as age 30, born approx. 1899 in Illinois, parents both born Germany. In 1930 he was a Bell Telephone bill collector. He married Margaret K. __,. They lived in an apartment at 7915 S. Hermitage Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. 1930 U.S. Federal Census > Illinois > Cook > Chicago (Districts 501-750) > District 674. They had one son age 5 at the time of the 1930 census:
Robert C. Breuss, born 7 Sep 1924 (from Soc.Sec. Death Index) Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, died 24 May 2004 Fresno, Fresno County, California.

6. Theresa Breuss

2. Mathilda Dein, b. __ Dec 1867 Germany (from Soundex), d. 20 June 1958, Chicago, Cook Co. Illinois; married Johann Zirkel (d.24 Jan 1916) on 17 July 1902, his second marriage (no issue of this second marriage). Both are buried in St. Boniface Cemetery in Cook County, IL, section 92-P. In the 1930 U.S. federal census, there is a Mathilda Zirkel, widow, age 57, born in Prussia, Germany, emigrated 1895. 1930 U.S. Federal Census > Illinois > Cook > Chicago (Districts 1751-1976) > District 1754

Zirkel Notes: My grandma Bird (nee Guschke, mother was a Weichbrod) used to talk about the Zirkel's, but I have been in contact with Zirkel/Zirkle clans and originally found no relation--that has changed. According to the 1930 Census, an Elizabeth Zirkel married a George Becker, and they lived at 2227 West Irving Avenue, Chicago, Cook County, Illinois. Living with them was "mother" Matilda Zirkel. From other information supplied by the Zirkel researchers, Elizabeth's father was Johann Zirkel, from Ampferbach, Bavaria, Germany. His first wife, and Elizabeth's mother, was Caroline Pluckebaum (known as "Carrie"). Elizabeth's siblings were Johanna Caroline (Sr. Caroline Zirkel, O.S.F.) and Barbara (married Frank Sans). Anyway, Johann's first wife "Carrie" died in Oct 1900. Johann then married in 17 July 1902 his second wife, Mathilda Dein, daughter of August Dein (my relatives in the Weichbrodt family). This second marriage had no issue. My (Kevin Duerinck's) relatives, the Paul Dein and Joseph Breuss families, were neighbors of the Becker's and Zirkel's according to the 1920 federal census, all at the 2227 address (Ward 11, enumeration district 671). The Weichbrod's were cousins of the Dein and Breuss families.

3. Paul Dein, b. __ Jan 1872 (Soundex), Danzig, West Prussia, Germany (now Gdansk, Poland), immigrated 1891, d. Chicago, Cook Co. Illinois; married Barbara Engelhart, b.~1882 Illinois (her parents were from Germany).

William Schultz from the state of Texas states: My great grandmother was Celia M. Weichbrodt b. 10 Nov 1887 Chicago, m. bef 1917, d. 28 Aug 1935 Chicago. Her parents were John Weichbrodt and Minnie Scheuer both b. in Germany. John & Minnie were m. 4 Aug 1887 in Cook County. I do not have any info beyond this, but there were not many Weichbrodt's in Chicago during the late 1880s.
"I also found a Julius Weichbrodt in the 1880 Cook County census, ED 216 Lake View Township, page 251, all family members born in Prussia."
Per William Schultz: We have a total of 72 Illinois Weichbrodts in our database so far. I have no doubt that they tie into your line, I am just not sure where yet. We found 27 Weichbrodts buried in the Concordia Cemetery, 7900 Madison Street, Forest Park, Illinois 60130 in the Chicago area. I only have the names of 14 of them: Albert, Anna, Carl, Edna, Elsa, Emil, Emil, Geo., George, Helen L., Inf. of Edw., Inf. of Theo., Johanna, and Julius. Also checked the U.S. Census, Illinois, Cook County, for the years 1880, 1900, 1910 and 1920. Here is the link to William and Alexis Schultz website on their Chicago WEICHBRODT's:
Schultz on Chicago Weichbrodt's

Kevin notes: In the 1920 federal census for Chicago, Cook County, Illinois (enumeration district 1642, 27th Ward), there is an Emil Weichbrod, age 53 and a house painter, hailing from Prussia, Germany. His wife is Anna, age 46. 7 children: George 19, Clara 18, William 17, Hattie 15, Edward 13, Marie 11, Anna, age 9.

"Separated Angels: Shannon and Megan, the Fanning Twins", by Larry A. Fanning (1995, Storybook Press, Naperville, IL).

"Die Kartei Quassowski" (KQ), Hans-Wolfgang Quassowski, Hamburg Germany. The Original "Die Kartei Quassowski" was authored by Hans-Wolfgang Quassowski of Hamburg Germany. It was published and copyrighted 1977 by Verein für Familienforschung in Ost und Westpreu en. "Die Kartei Quassowski" is an extensive collection of genealogy of east German families. It is a part of the "Quellen, Materialien und Sammlungen zur altpreu ischen Familienforschung (QMS) ; Nr. 1" series. "The index volume of (385) pages is one of about 20 volumes of this collection and contains the genealogy of an estimated 350,000 persons. While it best known as an important source of East and West Preuessen genealogy, it is known to contain Pommern genealogy and appears to have Posen and Silesien genealogy as well." Weichbrodt is a name that is included in this reference work. See Continental European Family History Association (CEFHA).

"General Index zu den Siebmacher'schen Wappenbüchern 1605-1957 (GISW)", General Index authored by Hanns Jäger-Sunstenau, published and copyrighted 1984 by Akademische Druck und Verlagsanstalt, Graz - Austria. This work is "known to be an excellent index to the large multi-volume set of Siebmacher's works concerning what is now Germany, plus Austria, Switzerland and much of Eastern Europe. It contains 586 pages and an estimated 10,000 surnames with wappens recorded by Siebmacher. It includes parts of Siebmacher volumes 3, 15 and 31 that were omitted from the preceding index volume (1967?)". This work has the name Weichbrodt! See Continental European Family History Association (CEFHA)

"The GLB (German Lineage Books) collection at the FHL (Family History Library) is a major primary collection used by researchers. The first volume was published in 1889. It now includes individual volumes for separate regions within the former German Empire. This is the first of about 30 files serving as finding aids for this collection. A gray binder near the reference desk on the B-1 Level of the FHL contains a 67 page listing of all family names, coupled with the Volume number and page number for each family history. We only know of one volume missing from this collection - Volume 112 (Schlesien)." Quote from John Movius, CEFHA, at Continental European Family History Association (CEFHA). This book contains the family Weichbrodt from Schiave, Pommern.

The "Pommersche Familiennamen" by Dr. Hans Bahlow, published by Verlag Detgner, Neustadt an der Aisch, 1982 (99 pages, ISBN 3-7686-4099-X). "This book mainly consists of German family names from the Preussen Province of Pommern. The former Prussian province of Pommern (Pomerania) is split by the present day German-Polish border (generally speaking, the Oder River) as a result of the Yalta Treaty since the end of World War II (1945). Eastern Pommern (Hinterpommern) is now called Pomorze, Poland. Western Pommern (Vorpommern) is now part of the German province of Mecklenburg -Vorpommern." Quote from John Movius, CEFHA, at Continental European Family History Association (CEFHA). This book has Weichbrodt!
