First in November '97 I began to collect informations about my ancestors. On this site I already summarized my first results. Meanwhile 126 direct ancestors are specified. Among them a part out of a small booklet of the Meyer zum Vorwalde family.

It is conspicuous, that apparently there was not attached very much importance to the exact ways of writing. On the other hand mistakes obviously happened by translating the Wendish names to German and some persons purposely had changed their writing, to make a difference to their siblings. Thus there are different ways of writing for the same persons in different sources.

Concerning my surname "SYMMANK" first a "S" got lost. Later the second "M" crept in with my greatgrandfather by a mistake of a registrar. Of preceding generations the surname was written with "SS" and only one "M".

My oldest ancestor of the Symmank-line is George Ssymank married with Christiane Schulze. Until now only few descendants are known.

I also have some informations about four other Symank-families in Germany, of whom there are descendants still today, admittedly with quite different spellings.

At present there are known five families named Sy-i-m(m)ank, who emigrated in the 19. century to the USA. Besides, during this time also a family Neitsch emigrated, that descend from a family named Symank.

Up to now no connection to my family could be found.

The name "SYMMANK" has its origin in the Sorbian language:
- The english translation of the name means something like "little Simon".

The Sorbs/Wends are a small slavonic race, which had settled in the Lausitz and along the Spree.
