    Michael FIGEL[1]

    Male 1853 - 1927  (73 years)

    • Name Michael FIGEL  [2, 3
      Born 19 Sep 1853  Minikowo, Poland Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 3
      • His daughter, Matilda's death record states that he was born in Minikowa, Germany. I cannot find this location.

        On his passport application he also listed Minikowa, Germany.

        However, other census documents indicated Poland.

        Thus, I was able to find Minikowo, Poland. I believe that to be correct. I believe the confusion lies in the fact that Prussia, in the mid 1800's included Germany and parts of Poland.



        [2]
      • I had a birth date of Jan 1862 from the 1900 census, but a passport application in 1893 gave a birth date of 19 Sept. 1853. It also gave the birth location as Minikowa, Germany.
