I know sometimes spelling gets changed over time for names.

Resolved Question:

I know sometimes spelling gets changed over time for names. I have always spelled Kloppenburg this way, noticed in the finding it is spelled BORG. If you look for a birth certificate for FRANZ KARL ARTHUR KLOPPENBURG, would that have his mothers Christian name and maybe maiden names on it.

Thanks for checking this for me

Hi Pat,

I will have a look for you, also siblings to Bernard.

Most of the time we are looking at transcribed records

According to his passenger record 1926 his father was living in Oldenburg, there is a genealogy website for Oldenburg which includes the email addresses of Kloppenburg's who are still living there.

The information you gave me was to do with my father Arthur. Annie Hodgen was my mother. Didn't know the time of his arrival in Canada. Had the name of the ship. My main question was any information that could be found on my grandmother. Her maiden name etc. That is my dads mother. If you can find out anything would be appreciated. Anything to do with the Kloppenburg family of Cloppenburg Germany
