To help my husbands family to find ancestros, I am researching the
surnames : STOKFLETH ~ STOCKFLETH ~ STOCKVLETH ~ etcetera...
so maybe there are German or Scandinavian geni-users who like to see if we can try to find the bridge between the Dutch, German & Scandinavian profiles?
This project-page is to link ALL geni-profiles with these surnames to research the common-gen-aspects. Thanks for your help, groet, jMu = jeannette from Holland, Europe.
My name is Gerhard Brodtkorb. I live in Mesnali, a small place
12 km. from the town Lillehammr, Norway.
My fathers aunt`s name was Astrid Stockfledt, her birthname was
Steensen. She was the sister of my grandmother Østine Steensen.
She was married to the Policechef Stockfleth of Oslo.
If you want I can take a look into the matter?
Go to "Norwegian Digital Archives" and the portal for "search all databases":
1) Set year range to 1500 - 1900
2) Set left scrollbar to "Førenamn" (Surname)
3) Set right scroll bar to "børjar på" (starts with)
4) Enter "Stock" and click "hald fram" (continue)
5) Click on all the suggestions that look relevant and you will find ca 44 Norwegian Stockfleth´s
6) Click on the nr "44" left of "funne" (found) and they will all appear in the right hand window - sorted by county
7) Tick off the various boxes in the "Kommune" (county) row - and click on the names that appear and you get the details for each individual
Repeat the excercise with "Stok" and you find ca 45 more. Oldest entries you will be searching are from the 1801 sensus. Pluss some odd public documents that go further back.
According to "Store Norske Leksikon" http://snl.no/Stockfleth the Norwegian Stockfleth family originates from Eggert Stockfleth († 1638) who emigrated from Haderslev in Denmark to Drammen in Norway.
On the Norwegian genealogy forum there is a tread discussing the origin of this family branch in Denmark. http://www.disnorge.no/slektsforum/viewtopic.php?t=71701. Mentions e.g. a Jacob Stokvliit in Aalborg in 1459 and a Thomas Stokflet in Holstein in 1367.
