For those of you interested in researching family and obtaining help in your Northern European Baltic region research, I have created a new LinkedIn group called Polish- Prussian Genealogy – Polski- Prusy Genealogia – Preußische Ahnenforschung. The group’s primary areas of interest include the region once known as Royal and Ducal Prussia. The region covers what is today North Central and North Eastern Poland; the Russian Oblast of Kalinigrad; and a small piece of Lithuania. As for my interest, this area was my maternal family homeland for the 400-500 years before 1945.
For many, finding, researching, and understanding the evolution of the peoples who lived in that region is most difficult. If you are interested and could benefit through an association with like minded ‘genealogists’ researching those areas, I encourage you to register on LinkedIn.
