Let's continue to explore opportunities for synergistic projects.
Don't forget to visit the Texas Wendish Heritage Society's new website - the Wendish Research Exchange. Visit it at WendishResearch.org. And also visit ResearchProject.info for more information on joining that effort.

|Message||I am in the US, but 'my' Wends came to Australia in the 1850-1860 migration, so my 'Wendish' self-identification will be Australian. My cousins and I have recently discovered each other and we're having a GREAT time!|
@Jack Grueschow - have been working hard to follow AUS Wends on Ancestry.com. Find me there. Maybe I can help. Also check out Wendish Heritage Society of Australia
@Liza Supra - Wow! Your family was probably WITH my family on the Peter Gottefroy 1859, which dropped some passengers in South Africa before continuing to Adelaide, South Australia! You've found Passenger lists, right? I could help.

|Message||Hi: Just wanted to say that I am Dawn Marie Hentschel Dobring Renaker - Cooper - My Grandmothers Madien name and her Maried name, My Mothers Madien name and Married name My maiden name and Married name. I know its a mess. |
Anyway - Dobring - Wendish. My uncle Martin Dobring did a Wendish English Dictionary. If you want to contact him please give me an address and or a phone number where he can contact someone. He is the one that has traced and visited the wends. I know that my Grandfather John Martin Dobring came from Pembrook Canada. I have not met anyone from his side of the family. I would be nice to know If I have any relatives in Pembrook. I know our family home there was burned down. Not sure what happened as to why it burned down. There was the last time my mom went there a part of the chimney that was left at the old homestead. Anyway - I can't be of much use to you, but my uncle the historian can be.

|Message||Hello Folks, It is good to see this website and Arthur Becker working on it. Hello Arthur! I also have a Wendish name in my family tree. It is Teschner. I am glad to hear of your work. Some many moons ago I read that about 1/4 of the total heritage pool of Poland was actually Germanic and 1/3 of the total heritage pool of what used to be East Germany was Slavic. In Luther's time there were Wendish hamlets outside of Wittenberg and it was a trilingual town using what became standard High German, Low German and Wendish. God bless!|
