February 8 – Frieda Sofia Dorothea Stamann

We stick to the Olympics:

  • today 30 years ago, president Mika Spiljak declares the XIV. Olympic Games in Sarajevo as opened. The bobsled pilot Bojan Krizaj takes the Olympic oath.
  • and 8 years later on February 8, 1992 it is the french president Francois Mitterand who opens the XVI. Olympic Games in Albertville, France. The figure skater Surya Bonaly speaks on behalf of every athlete the oath. It is the last year both Summer and Winter Games are in the same year

Let me introduce you to Frieda Sofia Dorothea STAMANN on my family tree. She was born on February 8, 1877 in Sievershagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

She was the second born child of the machine manufacturer Johann Joachim STAMANN and his wife Catharina Maria née LENSCHOW from Sievershagen.

She received her christening on February 28, 1877 in Diedrichshagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. At the same church she got confirmed on March 22, 1891.

She also married there the carter Otto Karl Johann STAMANN on November 18, 1898

The last trace I have from her is the 1900 census of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. It states her living in Sievershagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

I didn’t find any children so far and I am also missing her death entry.
