Surname: Hagen

Detail from Brandt-Hagen marriage record

The Hagen surname is part of John Samuel Krentz's heritage. His great-grandfather was:
  • Christian Ludwig Hagen of Sückau, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. Christian and his wife, whose name I don't know, were my third great-grandparents.
  • Catharina Dorothea Elisabeth Hagen, born 29 April 1819 in Sückau. She married Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Brandt on 4 November 1842 in Dammeretz, Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Together they had eight children, five of whom lived to adulthood. Catharina died on 20 March 1891 in Monticello, White County, Indiana. She was buried the next day in the Lutheran cemetery at Reynolds. Catharina and Johann were my great-great-grandparents.
I haven't yet done any additional research on the Hagen line, although I hope to find out more at some point.

The marriage record above comes from the Evangelical Lutheran records of Vellahn parish. They are available on microfilm at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City (film no. 069632, 069633 and 069634). These films are also on permanent loan at the LDS stake at 17140 SW Bany Road, Beaverton, Oregon.

Are you tell me please whether Evangelical records for an 1833 birth in Sückau have been filmed, and if so in which parish they are to be found?

Bronwyn, sorry, I don't know whether the Sückau records have been filmed. My information comes from family members. I haven't seen the Sückau churchbook records yet.

Many thanks for your reply. If you know or discover where the Sückau Church books are held, and how they can be viewed, this is information I would be very pleased to learn.

You're welcome, Bronwyn, sorry I could not be more helpful. If I locate the Sückau records at some point, I'll post that info here, and hope you'll do the same if you find it before I do! Best wishes!
