A detailed plot map (ca. 1945) showing residences in Henkenhagen, Kr. Kolberg-Körlin, Pomerania.
Maass families lived in Henkenhagen for at least four hundred years. Martin Maass, born about 1540, inherited his father's farm in Ziegenberg in 1573. There were at least 9, possibly 16, Maass families living there during World War II and their residences are identified below. A complete list of all residents can be found on Dirk Petrat's website. The village was also the home of three Noerenberg and six Mews families when this map was drawn. Martin Noerenberg and Sophia Mews, my 4th-great grandparents, lived in nearby Wendhagen in 1779.

This map was adapted from an old postcard published in a book by Jerzy Patan [Ustronie Morskie. Na da wnych pocztowkach do 1945 roku - Henkenhagen auf alten Postkarten bis zum Jahre 1945. Kolobrzeg 2002]. It was kindly provided to me by Dr. Peter Gürge. His mother, Eleonore (Maaß) Gürge, also traces her ancestors to this village and their lineage can be found on their website "Chronik der Familie Maaß". My thanks to Craig Maas for the enhancements and the addition of Adobe Flash programming.
