Rather belatedly I have come upon this website and the message posted by Glenis Hickey Andersen in 2013. My Wendish ancestors also came to Australia from Werben. My great-great grandmother was Eliza Domaschenz, daughter of Christian Domaschenz. Coincidentally, one branch of her descendants, from Perth, have the surname Hickey.
Eliza married into the Kruse family, who were not Wendish, but came to Australia from a small German village called Sudfelde. In 2013 I did make a visit to Sudfelde, but have not been to Werben.

|Message||My father, Emerson Budarick is from Algonquin park Ontario Canada. I was born in Kamloops BC Canada. I knew there was not many of us, Budarick's and anyone that was, is a relative. My auntie Joan had a book written up on the history of our family, Joan still lives in Ontario, my dad's youngest sister. |
From what I understood was my great grandfather brought his son , as stole always on a boat, to Canada. I don't really know how much is true. It is exciting to find out 1/2 of my heritage.
Thank you and do enjoy your day, Sheryl Budarick.

I may have spoken to you before. You visited my Cousin in Hungary. I think if this is the right website. Arpad Zsondy is my cousin in Rabatotfalla in Vas, Hungary. This is a Wendish community.
Do you remember?

|Message||My Wendish connection is through my mother, her maiden name was Schemel and my father German, both are descendant from families who migrated to South Africa in the 1860s. My brother has done extensive work on our family tree already but it is always interesting to hear about other Wendish families. I would like to subscribe to Worldwide Wendish Connection.|

|Message||I am an Orthodox priest, of Ukrainian-Russian descent. I currently serve a parish of the "other" Serbs here in Michigan.|
I've always been fascinated by the history of the various Slavic peoples. I believe that "my' Serbs may have originated in the Sorbian homeland and migrated southward.
I'd like to hear from anyone interested in this theory. My e-mail is [email protected]
