Summary of Erwin Baingo Line: Erwin Baingo of Silesia, Prussia - Banka / Baingo line
Clare Josepha Baingo - Born: 1894, 19 Mar in Tarnowitz - 1981, 17 Feb Lambertsberg. Clare Schwierholz nee Baingo was a talented violinist and whose ring I proudly wear.
Kurt Robert Baingo - Born: 1889, September 18, Tarnowitz, Silesia - 1918, December 13, Dawson County, Montana, USA
Georg Max Baingo - Born: 1895, 10 Jul, Tarnowitz - 1896, 15 Jul, Tarnowitz
Max Georg Baingo - Born: 1897, 18 Sept, Tarnowitz - Abt 1965, Berlin. Fought in WWI and was listed as being lightly wounded on 31 Aug 1917 and 9 Sep 1918. Occupation = Chlb?
Ernst Baingo - Born: 1903, 1 June, Tarnowitz - 1982, 10 Jul, Lambertsberg. Fought in WWI.
Notably all siblings apart from Kurt, died in Germany. I wonder if they moved to Germany after the Silesian Uprising when Tarnowitz was given to Poland in 1919?
Though he was respected by Mummy, sadly I know so hugely very little of my grandfather Erwin Baingo who we are proud of, (and can't find photographs or perhaps can't identify him), and therefore I am trying to trace his family history. So, sadly, doing simple maths (learn from my bitter mistake... talk to your parents, don't loose your treasured blood history!)
Born: 1859, 3 Feb Laurahütte - from marriage Certificate of Maximmilain Baingo
Laurahütte: Laurahütte (Upper Silesia) was a municipality in the district of Katowice, established in 1890 and dissolved in 1922 and and the region merged in 1923 with the community Siemianowice Slaskie (Siemianowitz). It is located in the Silesian Highlands, on the Brynica river (tributary of the Vistula). The Laurahütte was a steelworks built in the 1830s by the magnate Hugo Henckel von Donnersmarck near Beuthen. The first integrated ironworks in Upper Silesia was built there in 1838 and in its time, it was one of the largest ironworks.
Occupation: Restaurateur / Fleischer > Wurstmacher (Sausage Maker - see Ferdinand Baingo's Newspaper clipping) > Wurst fabrikant
Residence: Beuthen, Upper Silesia (The city became part of the Kingdom of Prussia in 1742 during the Silesian Wars and, part of the German Empire in 1871.)
Marriage: 1886, 14 Sep, Beuthen, Prussia
Died: 31 Dec 1904, Tarnowitz (act 273/1904). Buried: Jan 3, 1905 (aged 45). Died of diabetes (same as my Mummy, Ursula Baingo:(
Born: 1866, 30 Jan, Beuthen, Silesia, Prussia - from marriage certificate of Maximmilain Baingo | Died: 1958, 17 March, Dusseldorf?
Parents: Carl Patzek (a master carpenter - B: 1835 Beuthen-Tarnowitz?) & Johanna Patzek nee Goralczyk ('a little highlander')
Wüstenhammer (Desert Hammer): Is now known as Pusta Kuźnica and is a district of Lubliniec (german: Lublinitz). It is located on the northern edge of the Upper Silesia region. In the course of industrialisation, small industrial companies settled in Lubliniec.
Occupation: Kaufmann / Businessman (1822)
According to the announcement in the official newspaper of the city of Katowice 'Kattowitzer Kreisblatt' on November 12, 1910 the date of February 10, 1911 was set for the dissolution of the community of heirs through a court auction of the acquired property / inheritance. Heirs:
1. The Widow Baingo, born Bobczyk, in Tarnowitz
2. Berta Gasch, born Baingo, wife of the locomotive driver, residing in Beuthen O/S.
3. Max Baingo, charcuterie master of Tarnowitz
4. Anna Golka (married innkeeper), primo voto Bobczyk, born Baingo, residing in Lassowitz
5. Ernst Baingo, locksmith/metalworker, residing in Tarnowitz (I think his mother was living with him?)
6. Marie Schychowski, born Baingo, the restaurateur's wife, residing in Bismarckhutte
I found it really bizarre, that Ferdinand Baingo died in 1866 but his inheritance was being discussed in 1910/1911. According to Axee a mega fab and sweet researcher in Poland: Indivisible joint inheritance - a legal concept existing in Polish law, inherited from the provisions in force in the Prussian partition based on the Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch (BGB). Under § 1922 BGB, when a person dies, his property passes as a whole to one or more other persons, and under § 2032 BGB, if the testator leaves several heirs, the estate becomes the joint estate of the heirs. I have a hunch that Ferdinand's children let their Mother, live in the family home until she grew old - in 1910 she may have been circa 88 years old. Then one of the siblings may have brought her into their home and then Ferdinand's assests were put up for auction and divided between them.
First names Marianna vs Marie. Out of respect for the Mother of Christ, during the realy era, baptised daughters were not named Mary (Maryja) in Poland. This first name was applied to only one Mary - the Mother of Christ. In some regions, daughters were not given the name Maria for the same reason, but were replaced with Marianna or Maryna.
Marie Schychowski nee Baingo - is cited in her mother's (Marianna Marie Baingo nee Bobczyk's) death 1906 certificate. Marie Schychowski nee Baingo who lived in Siemianowice (Siemianowitz), declared that: the houseowner, widow Maria Baingo née Bobczyk, her mother, 73 years old, Catholic, living in Laurahutte (Huta Laura), born in Beuthen, widow of the houseowner, Ferdinand Baingo, daughter of principial foreman in the mine (germ. obersteiger) Simon Bobczyk and his wife, Maria née Letocha, both died in Bytom, in Laurahutte in her apartment on March 2, 1906 at 9.45pm has died.
Parents: Simon Bobczyk (13 Oct 1808 (Bobrownik, Tarnowitz, Silesia, Prussia) - 7 Mar 1884 (Neu Beuthen, Tarnowitz, Silesia, Prussia)) who was a miner and later promoted to principial foreman in the mine (germ. obersteiger) and Marianna Letocha (Abt 1812 (Beuthen Trockenberg, Bytom, Silesia, Prussia) - 13 Oct 1876 (Beuthen Trockenberg, Silesia, Prussia)) daughter of a master butcher.

Surname change: Carl Banka (Junior) is Ferdindand's Father confirmed by Ferdindand Baingo's death certificate. No wonder I hit the thickest ever brick wall - there was a name change! Only discovered this and would not have discovered this, without the Król zagadek, Axee.
Surname: The birth certificate for Ferdinand states his Father's surname was Banka yet on his death certificate it states Baigo. Silesia became part of Prussia in 1742, then in 1815 was named the Prussian Province of Silesia and in 1871 Silesia became part of the German Empire. During this time towns' names were Germanised e.g. Laurahütte, Wüstenhammer... I think the family changed their surname from Banka to Baingo inspired by the nearby village Baingow which sounded like their surname. Mummy had been told a family story - there was a town named after the Baingo's (Bangow/Baingow: "Presumably, the name of the town comes from its founder named Bańka"! An ace qoute from Axee rocks: "Bańka = Banka = Bainka = Baigo = Baingo !!!". In 1882 Ferdindand Baingo is listed as a kaufmann and on his mother's death certificate in 1881, her name is given as Caroline Baingo.
Wesola: is a district of Lubliniec (german: Lublinitz). In 1742, after the Peace of Breslau, like most of Silesia, Lubliniec fell to Prussia. Carl's birth certificate is from the parish Tworog. Wesola is now a part of the village Koty near Tworóg

Axee Rocks: Hugest EVER thanks to an utterly BRILLIANT Polish ancestry hunter. After circa 5 years of research, Axee has found me, my great, great, great grandparents. Axee is... the boss of all bosses :)
Occupation: an Unterfrischer > Frischer - steel mill worker (the same occupation as his son Carl Banka (Junior)). In Franz Banka's birth certificate it says Carl Banka (Senior) worked as a Halember Frischer i.e he worked in the Halemba steelworks (polish: Huta Halemba), today's Ruda Śląska (not the Halemba mine). In 1718, in Halemba, a second charcoal-fired blast furnace (blast smelting furnace) was put into operation. It operated until 1808. In the years 1836–1869, another blast furnace was in operation at the "Thurzo" steelworks.
Married: Francisca Ziaja. When? Before the birth of first son, in 1796 so circa 1794 in Wesola.

Where art thou groovy Baingo's - especially from Berlin and Silesia? Please do help me trace my Baingo family history. So many questions. I am stuck on:
You can contact me via likendin
His brother Max Baingo fought on the German side, in WWI and was wounded twice - 31 Aug 1917 & 9 Sep 1918
The Jordan Gazette - 19 Dec 1918 (Page 1, column 4)
TWO DEATHS FROM SPANISH INFLUENZA
Kurt Biango, a single man residing on a homestead near Butte Creek, died a 3 o'clock last Friday morning, December 13th, after an illness of eleven days from Spanish influenza followed by pneumonia. Nothing is known about Mr. Biango's past life except that he was born in Germany and was about 32 years of age. He came to this community about four years ago and took out his first citizenship papers and filed on a homestead. He had no relatives in the United States, but gave the name of an intimate friend in New York to be notified of his death. The friend sent a telegram directing that burial be made here, and the remains will be laid to rest in Greenridge cemetery at 3 o'clock tomorrow, Friday afternoon, December 19th.
Do you know the origin of the surname Baingo? I have been considering:
Germany = 1600 - from ancestry.com, currently the oldest recorded Baingo births are twins Margaretha and Barbara Baingo who were baptised in the Evangelische Kirche Bitzfeld u. Eberstadt Württemberg Germany near Stuttgart on 16 Nov 1623-31. Their parents were Paulus Baingo and Margaretha Baingo. So Paulis Baingo was born circa 1600.
Poland = 1796 - Carl Baingo (from comparing ancestry.com, geneteka.genealodzy.pl and a Baingo's family tree
Baingo - in Slovakian and Hungarian, a meaning for "Bana" = mountain, mining (from U. Baingo).
Polish bańka: - a tin dish for liquids | coll. soap bubble | a glass spherical object | a spherical-shaped glass vessel attached to the skin for therapeutic purposes, used in traditional medicine | reg. (Krakow) gw. (Cieszyn Silesia) reg. (Kresy) Christmas tree bauble. As a surname Banka appears as a Polish (Banka), Slovak (also Banka) and Hungarian (Bánka): a nickname for a short fat man, from banka 'bulb'.
If you know the origin of the surname Baingo, please contact me via likendin
Baingow is a district of Siemianowice Śląskie, in Poland, bordering Piekary Śląskie and Czeladź. It has been presumed, the name of the town comes from its founder named Bańka. The first reference to Bańgów / Baingow dates back to 1596. Apparently, in 1780, Bańgów was a tiny settlement with only 7 houses and 42 inhabitants. Initially, the settlement was spelled in two ways: Bańgów and Bańków (according to Ludwik Musioł, the latter (Bańków) was still in use until 1813). During the German Empire it was renamed to Baingow. Why do I think my grandfather's (Erwin Baingo) surname orginates from the village of Bankow/ Bańgów / Baingow?
Late 2010 > just before mummy died...
A fossil crinoid: Chirocrinus baingowardi sp. nov. was named and described by Prof. Dr. S.K Donovan, in a lovely monograph. This ancient Silurian sea lily (crinoid), housed now in The British Natural History Museum was... discovered by me :) and named after both my lovely and heart brokenly missed mummy, but also after her, daddy, Erwin Baingo.
This new species of Silurian Crinoid was found in small quary called Rough Neuk Quarry, Girvan, Ayrshire, Scotland.
Thank you so much Prof. Dr. Steve Donovan for that lovely chat in a South Ken cappuccio bar and your instinct that my treasured wee slick gem that I had found so many years back, was indeed a new species of crinoid and I could honour both mummy (and she knew before...) and my Großvater.

Mistrz mistrzów Axee Rocks! - The most cleverest, hardworking, charming and enthusiastic ancestry researcher, ever, ever, ever!
I crown him Król polskich badań (King of Polish ancestry seeking) and Król zagadek (King of Puzzles)! Axee has been the only researcher and archivist to connect the sweet Baingo's archived tree and, be open minded to to the possibilty of a name change through time (Carl to Ferdinand's surnames). He is truly a BRILLIANT researcher!
I wished Mummy was alive to find out this amazing research. My Baingo cousins in American and Canadian cousins and I owe him a never ending glass of.. Starka :)
