Griebeler
I know that my Great-Great Grandfather and Grandmother came from Prussia and was born 1812 and 1816 respectively. His name was Michael Griebeler and hers was Franziska Unknown. The closest I can find is Gorbor (English) for Griebeler and Frances (German) for Franziska. Any regions I should be looking to find where they may have come from. I have found a Gribeler Lake in Switzerland but no one with that name.
Thank you

I have no information on these people in particular but the Griebelers seem to come from the Rheinland-Pfalz region of Germany as you can see at http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp. For example, many of them come from Daun which you can situate at http://tr.im/NMop. Franziska is German for Frances as you can see at http://tr.im/NMmq.
