thankyou for your response.....no i have not tried the ancestral sites.   I live in US and thought it would be hard to get info on German relatives still in the old country.   Would appreciate any info that you might obtain though......thanks greatly

This is what I have found so far. At least it gives some other names to chase down.

Gunther-Heinrich Prien, the son of an art instructor and judge, was born in Osterfeld, Thuringia (a state in central Germany) on 16 January 1908.  He was the eldest of three children.  His parents divorced sometime after he was born and his mother, Clara Emma Margarete Schalck, remarried to Max Gustav Bohstedt. Through this second marriage there were two siblings: half-sister, Margarete Elisabeth-Charlotte Bohstedt and half-brother,Hans-Joachim Bohstedt . Both of these siblings were born while Gunther grew up in the Baltic seaport of Lubeck. From my research the family must have moved either in 1919 or in the early 1920's to Leipzig where his mother worked as an art instructor at a university.

There isn't too much more reliable information on his childhood. I do not care to lean too heavily on the ghost written book by Paul Weymar stating about selling lace goods while his mother made paintings for money.

Family information with photos below:




Mother: Margarete Bohstedt (Born - Clara Emma Margarete Schalck) - Born 20. April 1882. Died 23. March 1954 (lung cancer) - aged 71. Was an art instructor in Leipzig.



Half-Brother: Hans-Joachim Bohstedt (Achim) L.z.S. U 389. Born 27. June 1920. Died 5. October 1943 (depth charge attack) - aged 23.



Half-Sister: Lieselotte Bohstedt (Born - Margarete Elisabeth-Charlotte Bohstedt) - baptized on 24. April 1918, born 30. October 1917.



Wife Ingeborg and one of the daughters (either Birgit or Dagmar)

As a matter of fact, I do know that he kept a pet bull onboard U47. Here is a picture I found of him with it.

thanks for the family info Sepp.   The half sister could still be living but would be very old.   I have tried to obtain info on the daughters, but no luck thru computer websites.......   Hopefully i will be able to connect with some family and maybe they will still have some of the old country ideals.....if you get my drift!!

Wendi Pillars is a teacher with National Board Certification in English-language learning and a member of the She has 15 years of teaching experience, cheap soccer jersey  overseas and stateside, and has been coaching Little League Baseball for three years.

It's that time of year again: Baseball season - and standardized testing season. As I donned my dangly earrings etched with the word "believe" on our firstcheap soccer jersey  mathematics testing day, my heart raced at the thought of the day's outcomes. You see, wearing the earrings on test days reminds my nervous self that I believe my students will do jerseys for sale   their absolute best. This got me thinking about how I was inadvertently partaking in the time-honored athlete's tradition of the good luck talisman.

As a Little League Baseball coach   jerseys free shippingand an elementary school teacher, I now connect standardized testing and baseball in more ways than one.
