Hello and Welcome!
paternal ancestry from North Bohemia / Sudetenland and Silesia
maternal ancestry from Saxony / Lausitz and Silesia

I'm a direct descendant of
- Josef Gürth (7 generations; great-great-great-great-great-grandson)
- Anna Rosina (Rose) Hladky [Pobuda] (6 generations; great-great-great-great-grandson)
- Josef Teubner (6 generations; great-great-great-great-grandson)
- ancestral connection back to Grégoire de Douay born 1490 in Saint-Python, Cambrai, France

Surnames I'm researching

  • Gürth (Sudetenland - u.a. Warnsdorf, Hennersdorf, Niemes, Pressburg),
  • Müller (Schlesien - u.a. Zerbau (Lerchenberg), Glogau, Bertelsdorf bei Lauban, Ostritz),
  • Wuttig (Sachsen - Dresden, Torgau, Görlitz),
  • Tranzschel (Sachsen - Dresden),
  • Görner (Sudetenland - Nieder-Preschkau / Neubukow),
  • Vollenbroich (Sachsen - Dresden),
  • Goldschmidt (Sachsen - Dresden),
  • Pfützner/Werner (Wolhynien / Galizien),
  • Heller (Sachsen - Dresden),
  • Ludwig (Schlesien - Breslau / Sachsen - Wurzen),
  • Härtig (Sachsen - Dresden),
  • Eger (Sudetenland),
  • Beloch (Schlesien)
  • Douay/Duy (Huguenots)

and many more

Relationship with the following families emigrated from Europe to the USA & Canada:
Heckert, Spitzke, Steinke/Stankey, Hildebrand, Dietmeyer, Helwig

I actively work on Find-a-Grave + BillionGraves and help other users with capturing, transcription and translation of German headstone inscriptions.

Ich würde mich sehr über Kontakte mit anderen deutschen Muttersprachlern hier in WikiTree freuen, um vielleicht eine deutschsprachige Gruppe zu gründen (um sich auch mal einfach in der Muttersprache austauschen zu können) und gemeinsam die erschreckend vielen Fehler in den Ortsangaben bei den europäischen Siedlungsgebieten von deutschstämmigen Personen zu korrigieren. Wenn Daten im 17. Jhd. mit einer Ortsangabe mit nach 1945 gegründeten Bundesländern der BRD hinterlegt sind, ist das nicht nur historisch falsch. Und wieviele Orte in den historischen Gebieten Wolhynien und Galizien auf einmal zu Deutschland gehören, nur weil da Kolonisten aus deutschen Landen siedelten, ist auch bemerkenswert. Die Kentnis von europäischer Geschichte und Geographie scheint bei den amerikanischen Freunden nicht sonderlich ausgeprägt zu sein. Aber das ist ja auch bei FamilySearch und Ancestry usw. leider zur Genüge festzustellen. Und wenn Ortsangaben vor der Unabhängigkeitserklärung mit USA angegeben werden, scheinen die Kenntnisse übers eigene Land wohl auch nicht sehr vertieft zu sein ;-) Und als DataDoctor muss man dann den ganzen Unsinn u.a. in den diversen Wettbewerben wieder zeitaufwändig korrigieren und berichtigen. Von dem ganzen GEDCOM-Import-Junk zu schweigen....

Andy, not sure how you came upon that error on my Grandfather, Erwin Scott, Sr. But thank you for taking the time to find and make that correction.

Just checking in with a few quick tips:

Free Space pages are wiki pages for supplementing your family history. They can be used to profile anything of significance such as a special pet, a meaningful event, a school you attended, a family heirloom .... They're "anything pages".

Not sure what to include in a profile? Check out our Biography Ideas and Styles and Standards help pages.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, please ask!

Hi A!

Thank you for your decision to contribute. WikiTreers have all sorts of skills, but one common interest - genealogy. I would recommend first looking around and become familiar with the various functions.

The main menu, located at the top right of the page, offers access to the most important features amongst them your Wiki-ID. In the help section »G2G« at the bottom, you’ll find the WikiTree online help. You can ask all sorts of questions, technical and others, and because WikiTree is worldwide, there is almost always someone online, who can give a qualified answer. Good luck! - And don't forget to sign the Honor Code. Pleasure to have you aboard.

Please add your full last name, as the tree is indexed by last name.
