City directories from Magdeburg have yielded three different addresses for Karl LANKAU in the 1820s. Each record shows that he was a shoemaker (schuhmacher/schuhmachermeister) and lived in the eastern part of the city, near the Elbe River. Unfortunately, it seems that this area was heavily bombed during WWII and there's not much to work with from the FHL catalog pertaining to the Altstadt section of Magdeburg.
