Bertha Nowasky's Birth Record
Thanks to Tom Peters for locating this for me. The record, provided by the familysearch.org website, is from the "Deutschland, Geburten und Taufen 1558-1898" index
(Germany, births and christenings) for the Tuchel (Tuchola) district in West Prussia, which today is located in northern Poland.
Although I am not absolutely certain, it appears from other sources that her mother was born Louise Pubanz, the daughter of Louis and Louise Pubanz.
They lived in the town of Cekcyn, in the district of Tuchola, in what is now Poland. Based on this and other records, it appears that Bertha may have been born out of wedlock.
The christening record provides no name for the father, but her mother is listed as Louise Krzyan. If Louise did marry someone named Krzyan, why is his name not listed
on the christening record? However, by the time the next child was born, Friedrich Wilhelm Nowatzke, on May 28, 1871, Louise is married to Carl (Charles) Nowatzke.
