Kujan, Kreis Flatow
Kujan is a very pleasant village located on the main road betweenSypniewo and Schmiedau in Kries Flatow. It was the mill not only for Kujan but also for Schmiedau. The village sets at the head of a lake and was the site of an old saw mill at which Remus family members once worked. The privileg to run the mill was purchased on 12 April 1767 by Erdmann Goede from Anna Radomitzka. Erdmann was most likely the son of Erdmann Goede who purchased the Staluner Muhle Privileg in 1721.
Here is a picture of the site where the sawmill was located (it burned down long ago and was relocated) as well as a picture of an old house near the mill.

PS I had several very pleasant stays of several weeks in Kujan at a Bed and Breakfast run by the Janczewsy family. They are a good choice for a home base in this area if you speak Polish or German (their daughter is currently learning English). Also they care for an old German cemetery in oldFriedrichsberg.
