|Map of Kreis Saatzig in Pomerania (source)|
Today's origin story will deal with the hometown of my Schmidt family. As far back as records for the area were recorded, my Schmidt family can be found in Goldbeck, Kries Saatzig, Pomerania, Prussia, now known as Sulino, Stargardzki, Zachodniopomorskie, Poland . This post will detail the history of Goldbeck. While it was difficult to find much about the area, I did manage to find enough to paint a general picture of some of the critical points in its history. The descriptions of Goldbeck will stop after 1945, as that is when it became part of Poland.
