Here meet different families

Already  as a teenager the history of our family was exiting for me. Family was lived in my parents' house and so my ancestors up to the great-grandparents were familiar to me. The grandmothers told us stories of their lifes. So it won't took long that I started to search for my ancestrors. Meanwhile I practice genealogical research since 2003 and have collected extensive genealogical data of my descent. In addition I own a large collection of family pictures. Parts of my ancestors lived afar from here where I live and there are some interesting stories of their lifes to be told.

Die Vorfahren meiner Schwiegermutter Helga Eberle stammen aus Burkardsdorf - Bierdzan - in Oberschlesien. Bierdzan liegt 23 km nordöstlich von Oppeln. Die Familie Grzeschik war dort schon im 17. Jhd. ansässig. Aus dem Nachlass ihrer Mutter Elisabeth Grzeschik stammt das Foto einer schlesischen Hochzeit. Dieses Foto ist in den 20er Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts aufgenommen worden. Elisabeth, die links vorne steht, im karierten Kleid, war meiner Einschätzung nach ungefähr 12 Jahre alt auf diesem Foto. Sie steht anscheinend zwischen oder links neben ihren Eltern. Vor ihr steht wohl ihr kleiner Bruder Josef.

Wer auf diesem Foto heiratet wissen wir leider nicht. Möglicherweise eine Tante oder ein Onkel. Viele Informatioen über die Familie Grzeschik sind uns nicht bekannt. Aber es war wohl eine sehr große Hochzeit im Kreise der ganzen Familie.

Zu einer schlesischen Hochzeit gehöret vor der Hochzeitsfeier der Polterabend und am Tag nach dem Hochzeitstag das Nachfeiern. Das Foto ist ein schöner Blick in die Zeit vor fast 100 Jahren und das älteste Foto das aus der Familie Grzeschik überliefert ist.

Interesting Facts

There were strong emigration movements for economic reasons after the Thirty Years' War. Workmembers from the overpopulated Switzerland (especially from the cantons of Berne, Zurich, Thurgau and from the cantons of St. Gallen) and from Vorarlberg were resident in the destroyed, partly deserted areas of south-west Germany and helped to settle the war-ravaged country again.
