The Grischow Family in Canada

Welcome to the Canadian Grischow Family Website.

From my limited research, it seems most (all?) Grischow families in Canada descend from one family who immigrated to Waterloo County, Ontario from Mecklenburg- Schwerin, Germany in the late 1860's -- the family of Christoph & Elizabeth (Holtz) Grischow.

For information on what little is known about this family back in Germany, and why they may have left, see Christoph & Elizabeth's story.

I descend from Christoph & Elizabeth's son Frederick & his first wife Lydia Clemens.

A 3-masted barque, the type of ship immigrants 
sailed out of Hamburg on in the 1860's.
