Message I am searching for Mary Catherine Girard. She is my GG Grandmother. Some of my family members said that she came to Texas because of religious percusion in Germany, she was Lutheran.Mary was born 1829, died 1908. She married Christopher Koinm 1854 in Harris county Texas. I have been unable to locate either person prior to 1854. If you could help please do so. They lived north of Houston in Humble Texas, in fact they were one of the founding families of Humble. I would love to track them to Germany and one day soon visit wher they were raised.
Thanks; George Koinm

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!

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.
