Thank you Irene (all others) for all your work in assisting us with making those family connections! It's always a wonderful feeling when you are able to move "ahead" with ones research.

As some of you know, I have been taking the painstaking task of tying together the numerous Doberstein families throughout the US, Canada, Poland and Volhynia. This is not an easy task but with people like Irene- the steps aren's so difficult.

Last night as I was 'dancing' around various sites - I returned to the site and did some surfing to see what was new. BINGO! After reading the entry on Metryki ( with specifically the Przasnysz Records) why these records? It was the note regarding how some of those families that found themselves in Heimthal came out this area. (I'm currently inventorying the those Dobersteins in the Heimthal parish)

My line of Dobersteins settled in the Nataliendorf area around 1876-78.They came from the Sompolno/Teodorowo/Galczyczk area of Poland.

Remembering that I had a family of Dobersteins in the US, who made mention of their relationship to Warsaw, I began my search. And there they were!! I was able to take this line back a full generation. And share the news with the respective family members.

This isn't my direct line as of yet... but tying all the Doberstein's together will help to get me closer to whom is related to whom. ( of course someone did mention that a DNA test would provide a quick connection too! )

So....thank you Irene.

Tying together families is often a good idea, especially if you have no idea where they came from. In my case, I found a whole bunch of KOPETZKI families in the church register of Przasnysz, but could not connect them with my grandfather Emil KOPETZKI, who was born in about 1890 in the parish of Heimtal, Volhynia.

Years ago, I collected all KOPETZKIs from Przasnysz, hoping that one day I will be able to connect them with my family. This happened when SGGEE published the index of the church books from the Zhitomir archives. There it was: the birth record of my grandfather :-) , born and baptized in 1889, in the church book of 1900! The marriage of his parents took place in Przasnysz, I already had this - and three more generations of my direct KOPETZKI line. Other lines go back even further. So, I want to say: thank you SGGEE!


PS: Is SGGEE's mailing list almost dead? All conversation seems to take place on Facebook. I'm not on Facebook, but I check SGGEE's Facebook page from time to time.

No the Forum is not „dead“ just not very active as I think users are using the various Facebook pages out there and there are so many now. If you are signed up, you should be getting notices

Not very active, indeed, there were only two messages within the last two weeks. That's probably why I got the impression, that the mailing list is hardly used anymore.
