Welcome to my Family research

My intention is to tell about my ancestors and describe their history and the history about the places and regions they came from. I will also describe important historical developments and events that have influenced and affected the people who have lived there. On my homepage I have chosen to describe the development until 1945-1946, when my ancestors started their new lives elsewhere in Germany and Austria.

I hope that the content of this homepage will help me find complementary information about my family names from South Moravia and Lower Silesia, listed below. I use the German names of villages and regions, that my ancestors used. I have also listed the corresponding Polish and Czech names. Since the end of the Second World War Lower Silesia is a part of southeast Poland and South Moravia is today an area in southeast Czech Republic.
