Conclusion to the Varied Ethnicity of Suwalki Province

Austrians, French, Germans, Jewish, Lithuanians, Polish, Prussians, Russians, and Ruthenians—all cultures, ethnicities, governments, languages, and religions are represented in this area in the 18th and 19th centuries. This blog concentrates on one group: “evangelische” Germans, a small minority of people in this multi-cultural land. Birth, marriage, and death records reveal the important events of their lives.

The next several weekly blogs contain information about the civil registration records in this area for the 19th century.

Future posts about one place of residence, The Wylkowiszki Administrative District, provides historical context and details about daily life.

About suwalkigermans

I started family research in 1993. My first two books focused on my maternal grandparents. Both families came from Kreis Rosenberg, West Prussia, to Big Rapids, Michigan. I left the Spurgats from Wylkowiszki in the Russian Empire as the third book because of the difficult and challenging research it required. After I published the book in 2010, I wondered what to do next. I thought I might try to share some of my research with others and maybe at the same time, by going digital, someone would find me. When you read the comments, you will see that happened. The best part of all this is helping others.
