OK! Here's your big chance to help Larry and me find relatives' records. The site we've linked to often, Family Search, has digitized church records online from our relatives' area of Silesia (Poland). To jump into the books, starting with births from the last day of 1826 , click HERE.
Oh, and Family Search works best if you create an account and sign-in first.
Here're most of the names to look for....and yes, the book was printed in German, with entries written in Suetterlin like those in Bohemia, but most of these people were ethnic Poles. Anton Otremba was born in Groder on June 13, 1828, and his wife Catherine Schallwig was born in Guschwitz April 26, 1827. I'm not sure if this book is the right one, but it's a good place to start.
(Hey, if novices like Larry and me can figure it out, so can YOU!)
