January 19 – Johann David Ernst Frahm

Georgia is the fifth state to leave the United States of America on January 19, 1861. Two weeks later, Georgia will be one of the founding states of the “Confederate States of America“.

The last Volkswagen Beetle (“VW Käfer) produced in Europe leaves the factory in Emden on January 19, 1978.

On my family tree we meet my first cousin 5x removed Johann David Ernst FRAHM, a fee farmer from Boienhagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. Today is the anniversary of his death on January 19, 1896 in Boienhagen.

His son Johann (one of his six sons) registered his death with the officials one day later.
