Family  History  and  Genealogy

Ahnenforschung  , Familien Geschichte

The purpose of  my collecting  family history
by bits and pieces in the last few years was
to eventually get a connecting story.
I did not believe it possible to ever find 
marriage, death or birth certificates
I tried for any actual document. 
     I started out without written records 
     I had never seen a photo of my father's or
     my late husbands's birth record  or place.
  These birth places could not be found on a
   map. The countries were stolen and wiped 
   off maps for decades.

          Now after the Fall of Communism the chance for being able to once
          again get personal identification documents such as a birthcertificate
          suddenly became a possibility, which for 50 years was unthinkable.

      In 1525 Albrecht von Brandenburg-Ansbach secularized Prussia  as independent Protestant
      State, after the people of Prussia rejected the Papal Catholic Rule of the Teutonic Knights.
      Take-Over  attempts  by  the Kings of Poland were also successfully repelled.

      Prussia became the first Protestant State under the  Imperial  Electors  of Brandenburg
      the Frankish  - Swabian - Brandenburg - Prussian  Hohenzollern from 1414 - 1918 AD.
