9th Semi-irregular ManyRoads Newsletter

I apologize for delay in getting our semi-irregular newletter out.  Things have been a bit hectic and my network has been unreliable.  Also for those who follow my writings in the various Groups within which I am a participant, you may have noticed I have been uploading a lot of information to ManyRoads.  Unfortunately that becomes very problematic when the network doesn’t work well.

Once again, numerous, very thoughtful and generous folks have sent us materials to share on the web. We greatly appreciate the ‘donations’ and will make them available as we are able. If you have photos, maps, stories that you think fit with our audience and subject matter, we’d love to hear from you.

Anyway here are ManyRoads major updates for the last 30+ days:

On one of the Yahoo groups in which I participate, I noticed that people seemed to be struggling a bit to understand when, where, and when Germans moved into Eastern Europe (including places like Pommerania, West Prussia, East Prussia). I have posted a VERY simple, map tutorial covering German and other Central European peoples migrations and/or locations before the World Wars.

I hope this post helps makes it a bit easier to understand and find what types of people may have lived near the areas you are researching.

The following West/East Prussia addressbooks (and now we have several from Pommern as well…) have newly been added to ManyRoads. Looks like it about time to rearrange things.
