records and documents:
However, it's also possible this name is a mistake. The death record for the younger Michael Badke lists his parents as "Michael Badke" and "Anna Elisabeth geb. Warnke". However, the death record immediately preceeding this one lists the descedent's parents as "Johann Holz" and "Anna Elisabeth Warnke". So either there was an error in recording or copying the records, or there was a mighty strange coincidence.
