Grandpa's Story

Map of Pommern

Pomerania was the land in northeast Germany along the Baltic Sea. Pomerania, or Pommern, as it was called in Germany, was a Prussian province about one-seventh the size of Minnesota. Minnesota’s area is 79,617 square miles, Pomerania is 11,654 square miles. The Kienow family was living in the Kreis (county) of Regenwalde. Meesow was located just to the left of the L in Labes on the map above. This is an area that looks like the land around Faribault, with hills, trees, farmland, rivers and lakes.
