I have found this website very helpful – after searching for my German ancestors for years. Please lead me to helpful sites. I have Ancestry and, of course . Johann Friederich LIERMANN b. 30 Mar 1817, [I believe] Galenbeck, Ritteramt Stavenhagen, Prussia. Immigrated Aug 1852 through Quebec to Hustisford, Dodge Co., Wisconsin. I have information of life in Wisconsin and Nebraska, but I want to know more about Prussian ancestors. I believe his father was Joachim Christoph “Christian” LIERMANN (1783) and wife Sophia Dorothea MATZAHN GRASIN MOLTKE (1786) from Recknitz and Grischow respectively. Johann married Charlotte Fredericke Wilhelmina VOESCHE (1810) abt 1838 in Germany but I don’t know where. I do not know names of her parents. They were Lutheran. Their daughter, Wilhelmine F. LIERMANN married a Prussian emigrant, Wilhelm GROSSE who immigrated Jul 1854 through Quebec to Hustisford, Dodge Co., WI. On marriage certificate he gave his parents’ names as Christian and Christiana GROSSE. Tradition is that he came from Brandenburg.

The mark was substituted for currencies that had circulated throughout Germany: the reichsmark, Renten-mark , and the mark of the Allied Control Council, which had circulated in East Germany from May 1945 until June 1948. The established gold content of the GDR mark in 1953 was g of pure gold. According to the rate of exchange of the Gosbank (State Bank) of the USSR on January 1,1974, 100 marks equaled 40 rubles 50 kopeks.
