Evangelical Lutheran Church - Neukirchen
  Landkreis Bützow, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, Germany

This is a photograph of the church at Neukirchen, of the old Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany, with
the current Pastor Lange taken by Robert Priehs.  The church was built in 1233 A.D.  It just celebrated its
750th anniversary in 1983.  Neukirchen is in far northeastern Germany between Rostock and Buetzow.

View from Neukirchen Church Steeple

Looking over the plains of Eastern Germany from the church steeple.  My Kruse ancestors
went to this church at Neukirchen.  They probably walked or took a horse and carriage from
their homes in Viezen, Reinstorf, and  Klein Belitz in the 14th to 19th Centuries.
