I am looking for information on my great grandfather's birthplace. On his death record it indicates his birth as 23 Aug 1851, Talkowo, Poland. Can anyone tell me where this is located?

Mary,
The correct spelling is Lalkowy. It is located half way between Bydgoszcz and Gdansk in central north Poland.
Leonhard's birth record can be found at https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23SY-X?cat=292180 specifically record #57. Father is Albrecht Melka and mother is Marianna Kościńska.

Happy hunting
Tom

Some more records to help you on your way……

Birth of Marianna Kościńska – Baptism on 15 April 1827 in the village of Lalkowny. The record can be found near the bottom of page 258 at https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS8M-4654?i=180&cat=292180 Father: Joannes Mother: Franciszka Korkowa

The children of Albrecht Melka and Marianna Kościńska:
1845 Record #73 – Paulina https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23SW-Q?i=241&cat=292180
1847 Record #48 – Amanda Waleria https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23S7-9?i=256&cat=292180
1849 Record at top of page and not numbered – Marianna https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23S3-S?i=269&cat=292180
1851 Record #57 – your Leonhard https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23SY-X?cat=292180
1853 Record #67 – Bernhard https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23S1-3?i=316&cat=292180
1858 Record #41 – Johann Theophil https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23ST-3?i=360&cat=292180
1861 Record #30 – Franz Albert https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23SR-5?i=385&cat=292180
1863 Record #43 – Albrecht https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23S5-S?i=402&cat=292180
1865 Record #49 – Johann https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23S1-M?i=10&cat=292180
1867 Record #66 – Anna https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23SP-9?i=26&cat=292180
1871 Record #14 – Theophila https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZ5-23SY-T?i=44&cat=292180

Mother Marianna dies 1875 Record #13 Age 48 (which matches her birth year)

Father Albrecht dies 1889 Record #30 Age 67 (remembering that age at death estimates by the person registering the death are always a bit dodgy)

Based on Marianna Kościńska’s year of birth (1827) and the first entry for a child by her, in 1845 (when she was 18 years old), I would strongly suggest that the marriage of Albrecht Melka and Marianna Kościńska was in 1844 +/- 1 year. The bad news is that it appears (to me) that the marriage records for these years are missing.

Tom
